Pencil Box from Old Baseboards

Pencil Box from Old Baseboards

Last year when our family was still living in Alaska we decided to remodel our kitchen.

Blogging is Hard

Blogging is hard. I haven’t posted in well over 2 years and I’m finally logging into my account again.

The thing I have to keep reminding myself is:

It’s hard to dedicate time each week to “write” but I’m doing it for myself. If other people happen to stop by on my journey of creativity and self growth that’s an extra bonus!

It’s hard to dredge up content. It’s hard to do anything half-ass because most of us are ‘do nothing if it isn’t’ perfect’ people.
