I think, once given an opportunity to just be for a little while, that it becomes apparent what you and your family as a whole is all about. As it relates to the blog, I've found myself wondering what in the world to post next. When I think about it that way, I end up with a brain full of whirling ideas...egg recipes, party ideas, places in my town I want to showcase, decorating, and tons of anectdotal shenanigans. When they start whirling, I end up with little time or energy to focus on any of them.But I have a favorite new author that has helped me change the way I think about living, in general. Just to give a quick blurb, Tsh Oxenreider (not a typo...it's Tsh, pronounced Tish) has a blog and some wonderful books that focus on the the art of simplifying. One of the best things about her is that she focuses more on the word "intention" than "simple". Simple can sound boring. Intention conveys a lot more.
To me, that's the magic. Using our ideas and hands and friends to make things happen. Every lifetime needs a little bit of magic. I intend to provide that.
