I've had a really hard time knowing what to do with this site, and over the weekend, I finally realized the root of the problem. I launched this site last year because I wanted to establish myself as a writer, and I needed a platform from which to do it. But when I did that, I divorced the writer in me from the rest of me. It became difficult for me to post because I pressured myself to only post perfectly written specimens of my writing ability. That made for a very dull blog. Sorry. When I tried to separate my writing life from my real life, I lost all my material, and I think it's time to reunite the two. So, in the next few weeks, there are going to be some big changes around here. I'd like to introduce you to myself: the real me: the mom: the stationery designer: the wife: the photographer: me. I hope you enjoy what I write about this crazy life I live.

In addition to some changes in content, there will also be some changes in posting frequency. Starting April 1, I'm committing to a month of almost-daily posting. For five days a week, I will write at least 1,000 words. What I have to say may be mundane and uninteresting, but I will be flexing my writing muscles again. It's really been too long.

But now, I have to dry my hair before Micah (she's six months old now!) wakes up from her nap. Expect to see more of me around here, whether you like it or not!

Until next time, grace and peace.
