Yes, I Still Exist

I can't believe I have posted since 2012. That is shameful! Especially since there have been so many fun things I could have been share. Traveling, multiple visitors and some fun house projects. For whatever reason, I have been feeling rather uninspired in the blogging department so far in 2013. Maybe it is the grey days. Maybe it is how fast time is flying by. Maybe it is switching bosses for the third time in 6-months.  Maybe it is life without Gossip Girl to watch. (No judgement please. But wasn't the ending perfect!!) Who knows.

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to focus on some personal enrichment. When I saw the post for the Blogging Your Way e-Course on one of my FAVE blogs, Decor8, I knew I had to sign up. Today is the first day of the 4-week course and I couldn't be more excited. I LOVE blogs. I spend more hours than I care to admit reading about projects, home decor, finances,  recipes and the exciting lives of people I have never met. I firmly believe I am not half as interesting or creative than most of the bloggers out there. But you know what? I don't care anymore. This blog is getting on track! Stay tuned for more posts and hopefully some other site-wide changes in the coming weeks.


  1. Hello, hello!! I love it over here - the design is so simple and pretty, and I definitely can relate to your writing voice. (Belated) Congratulations on the house, the decorating looks like it's coming along wonderfully. I have an eye for 2-dimensional design, but 3-dimensional design still blows my mind sometimes. I'm impressed you gave up Facebook, I'm not sure I could ever do it. And I love the fact that you're an east coast girl gone west coast. (I've learned in the past year that I'm an east coast girl with a little bit of southern girl in me. Who knows, maybe there will be some west coast too.) I visited Seattle for the first time last year - and while it was a little bit too dreary for me in December, it definitely was a city with personality. Portland's on my list too, but I don't think I'm going to make it out there this year. Which part of the east coast are you originally from?

  2. Hi Rachael! Thanks for checking out my blog - super pumped to be in BYW. Loving your blog template and looking forward to following along! See you in class. (For the record - totally agree re: Gossip Girl - perfect ending.)

    I moved her from Northern Virginia. For some reason we feel the need to separate ourselves from the rest of Virginia. But basically I grew up just outside D.C. I moved here to go to school in 2006 and I am here to stay. Seattle is a great city! Totally different vibe from Portland. Basically everything you hear about us is true. We dress weird, eat weird and do very weird things. This is people watching at it's best. Not to mention some of the most amazing cheap food in the country. Portland is a great place to visit as long as you plan for between July 4th and September 15th. That is the consistent dry season. I think the reason there is so much good food and booze here is to put everyone in a coma during the rainy season. Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see more of you on BYW :-)
