Something Good

Apr 19, 2012

(A print I saw at Home Goods that I may go back to purchase for my office)

Howdy. I know it's been a while...
My creativity and desire to blog just hasn't been there and life has been getting the best of me, so I just took a small break. I don't want blogging to feel like a chore, so I want to be sure I only blog when it feels right. I hope you are all okay with that. I will just stay consistently inconsistent.

Now for a link up. I joined in on the Something Good Swap. I am going to write about a few of my favorite things so my secret pal can learn more about what to send me.

I Love:
-Anything related to chocolate and wine
-Nail Polish
-Fun graphic prints
-Dr. Seuss
-Fashion Magazines
-Live Music (Most recent obsession: City and Colour)

I want to learn more about:
-Graphic Design
-Coach John Wooden. (check out his Pyramid for Success.)

This is random. But it's what I have for now.


  1. Home goods always has the best stuff! I always love reading your blog, so I'm glad to see you back :)

    p.s. your "love" list couldn't be better.

    3. You're awesome.

  15. I was just thinking the same thing about my blogging. I want to be as authentic as possible on my blog and that includes not posting every day! Lol. I get so competitive with myself though that I feel like I SHOULD post every day, but I'm learning that it's okay to post only when I have something authentic to say. Forcing it only leads to mediocre posts that feel forced.

    1. PS: That's an awesome map! You should definitely get it! ;P


Would love to hear from you!
