It’s been about a billion years since I’ve updated here, and I like to think I have good reasons.
Reason 1: I’ve been taking a lot of sewing classes lately and I really only want to think/talk/write about sewing. Y’all, I have found my thing* – I’ve never had a thing that made me feel really excited and engaged and flow-y and all that, until now. It took me 35 years to find my passion, but that’s better than never.
Reason 2: I’ve started a new blog with my sister and it’s taking much of my blogging attention, just trying to get it started. It’s a place for me to write about non-intense things like sewing and crafty things and cooking and The Noodle and also sewing and a little more sewing. It’s nice to have a place that feels easy and happy.
Reason 3: Life is not hard in the ways that one talks about publicly. My struggles are small and quiet. While nothing is ever perfect, sometimes it’s still enough, and that’s where I’m happy to have found myself lately. I know nothing stays one way forever, though, so I’m trying to soak it up while it’s here.
So, that’s what’s up. I hope everyone out there is having a great summer with lots of limoncello and homegrown tomatoes, with occasional hours of nothing, with choruses of crickets and someone you love calling your name.
Speaking of which, I just heard mine; naptime must be over.
Happy summer, y’all.
