So here we are at the end of the August Break. August itself was anything but a break- what a crazy month it has been around here! When I first heard about the idea from Susannah Conway, I loved it, but I had no idea how much it would change the way I think about my blog and what I want it to be. Stepping back and spending a month focusing on posting images, often ones simply shot with my iPhone, I have thought a lot about why I write, and blog, and what direction I want to take it in the future.

I have ideas bouncing all over in my head but in short, I definitely want to write more. So that is what I plan to do. This blog started {almost 3 years ago now!} as a documentation of family life, and evolved with me as I’ve grown as a mother, an artist and a businesswoman. There are really no lines between my family life and my art and my career and my writing… it is all intertwined. I am still seeking my equipoise, and I want to share more of the journey with whoever would like to read it.

I recently stumbled upon this article at CopyBlogger, “10 Steps to Becoming a Better Writer”. I clicked the link to it, thinking it would give me some great tips to learn to focus and organize my writing better, and found that it just says to write. And I’m thinking, oh yeah, that. But I took it to heart, and I have been intentional about writing more. In doing so my thoughts have become more organized, and I have even been more inspired in my photography. And I have had idea after idea about blogging more thoughtfully and intentionally. I feel excited about my blog again, and I can’t wait to share some of my thoughts with you!
