A Long Overdue Update

When I started this blog a couple years ago, I was in a much different place in my life than I am now. It was easy to fill my time with multiple hobbies, various work projects and obligations. But as typically happens when you have your first child, my priorities changed. I found myself burdened by how busy I was, eager for time to focus on simpler things, like going on a walk or reading a book to Violet. Instead of living in the present and relishing the lovely moments I have with my rapidly changing daughter, I felt pressured to take on more projects while being an increasingly successful designer/cook/mom/wife, etc.. I started spending much too much time looking at screens versus going out and truly experiencing life.

When my husband sent me the article The ‘Busy’ Trap by Tim Kreider, I realized that the trap I was in was completely self-inflicted, and that by minimizing all the extra projects and computer time and activities I could focus more on what I really want to be doing…spending time with my family, traveling and making art.

With that said, while I will most definitely still be blogging, it will not be everyday. I want it to be a fun outlet, not another busy trap.

~Cheers, Sara~
