I am looking forward to the new year. I always look forward to a new year, as it gives me a chance to make goals and lists and plans and those are some of my favorite things to do. I am still trying to find my place. I turned 30 this year, went back to work after staying home with my kiddos for almost 5 years, lost 10 pounds before summer started (and gained it back throughout the summer!), rejoined Weight Watchers, became more social (sort of), and completed a bible study. I'm not a finisher, so these were huge accomplishments for me!
Last night I stayed up late to watch Julie & Julia- a fantastic movie that is oh so very inspiring- and I went to bed thinking about the many bloggers that inspire me on a daily basis. I hunted down Julie's blog and browsed through it for a while, thinking about how brave she was to take on such a challenge and what lesson I could learn from her persistence.
Then I thought of Nester and how her love for all things interior design gave her such a beautiful blog and so many readers. I feel like taking on my very drab home when reading her blog. I look around and think "I could do that".
I think about Alicia and Amy and Film in the Fridge (just to name a few) and how their craftiness and love for all things beautiful inspire me to create. I just want to sew, sew, sew after browsing their blogs!
And now I am left with this question- what is the focus of this blog? There are so many things that I love to do! When you visit here, in what way shall I inspire you???
