So I fell off the blog wagon already. To be honest, I just really haven’t had anything that was worthy of sharing this past month. And to be real honest, no time. The month of May is insanity for parents with end of year activities, field trips, summer prep, yada yada yada. But to be fair to myself and you, I have been thinking a lot about it and what my intentions were when I wanted to start a blog, and what the reality of the amount of work and dedication it takes.
I guess the reality for me is that I love reading blogs about crafting a fooding and entertaining. Do I do those things that I read about? YES! And I’m pretty good at it, too. Do I have time to sit and blog about those things, too? Nope, it turns out. I also don’t necessarily have a particularly new or interesting point of view to offer on most of those topics, which kind of sucks to admit, but it’s true. I suppose what I’m getting at is that trying to do too much of too many things is 100% against what I was trying to do when I quit my job to become a full time Farm Girl last summer. So what exactly was I striving for, you ask? This…
1. A simpler, less complicated and more humble life. To have more time to devote to taking care of my family and myself.
2. To foster a real connection to this amazing farm land that I am really privileged to be a part of.
3. To make my home a center of production, not consumption.
4. 1-3…with flair!
So out with the superficial stuff and in with the real stuff. Time to refocus.
I’ll be deleting some categories and adding new ones. I’ll be less worried about just throwing something out there for the sake of putting something up and more worried about putting up something that is useful and meaningful, with the heart of it being the journey to create the life I’ve been dreaming of.
