blogging perspective

Weaved into this post are some photos I took from a recent family photo shoot on a farm.  Just as plants take their time to produce, they remind me to stop in the busyness of life and let go when I need to in order to enjoy the present.

The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of activity for us.  We enjoyed 5 days in San Antonio, we had a great night at Great Wolf Lodge, and we thoroughly enjoyed time with family who we hadn't seen in a year and a half.  It's been a good busy.  In the midst of that busyness, I've had to let some things fall by the wayside for a bit.  I got caught up with laundry yesterday, I'm finally cleaning my house tomorrow (it really needs it!), I did proper grocery shopping yesterday for the first time since school let out (we were running out of cereal for dinner...smile), and I'm trying to get back on track with blogging.

The busyness of life always helps to put things in perspective for me.  It forces me to let go when I need to.  It helps me let go of expectations I put on myself.  Honestly, that's hard for me.  I like to think I can do it all.  However, when it comes at the expense of relationships and those I love, I know it's that time to let go.  Life is about so much more than whether or not I write a blog post everyday.  As a very driven person, it's a perspective I have to constantly remind myself of.

You've probably heard me say it before, but I absolutely love blogging.  It's such a fun, creative outlet for me.  I truly want to keep it that way.  I post daily because it's fun and I want to, not because I feel this pressure to perform.  As summer goes on, you might or might not see a repeat of a little inconsistency.  I do have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot of photos from our summer adventures.  Here's to a great summer!
