Hey guys. I know it’s been a while since we’ve spoken, but I’ve been thinking the past few days about this blog, and I think I know why that is.
All the to-do lists and challenges that I set for myself kind of take the fun out of blogging. There’s just all kinds of pressures for me to finish, and to carve time out of my day to write when I don’t always have the time or energy or desire. Sometimes I even feel like a failure if I don’t complete everything. (I finished all but one of the Spring Bucket List.)
I do miss blogging, and I want to come back to it, but I need to ease up on my rules, and to just blog lazily like I did in the beginning. I want to go back to showcasing my baking and knitting and whatever else I do, and just not always feel pressure that I DO realize is self-imposed.
Overall, things are fine at the moment. I’m on vacation next week. Work is infinitely better than it was the last time I went on vacation. I even received a raise!
I still want to work through all my cookbooks, but even baking every weekend it won’t be completed in a single year. I am going to try baking more often, because I miss it.
So, if you’re still around and still reading, I do hope to be more active, and soon.
