Life has a funny way of throwing opportunities into your path exactly when you need them. It just KNOWS...

Things have been a little nuts on this side of the computer lately and I would be remiss if I said I wasn't almost completely to "blame". I have a habit of being stuck inside my own head and we all know that is never a good idea. I've lost part of myself and I am on a mission to find it. It wont happen today, tomorrow or even next month. Heck it may take me the rest of my life but I have a renewed motivation to try. That's what is important right? To try, try again until you succeed. It's a motivational phrase for a reason I guess ;P

I often say how much I wish I would finish unpacking and how much I would like to get baking again (I've severely fallen off the 52 cake wagon) and despite my lack of follow through lately I think my first goal is to unpack. THEN I am going to catch up. No matter how long it takes. I made a promise to myself to renew my passion for baking because I haven't been the same since I stopped. I really think that keeping that promise to myself is THE most important thing I can do for myself this year. There is nothing like an outside point of view on your thought process to help snap you out of a funk!

It is going to be a busy next few days with a weekend away with Sarah but I think it is all apart of the plan. Because someone out there is making sure things go according to this big plan, even if I haven't been able to see it yet! I could write for days (even if I think I'm a piss poor writer) but I won't keep rambling, swear. Anyone who reads here knows I'm not exactly the grammar nazi that a writer should be (James, a writer, gently reminds me of that and I sincerely appreciate having him around for that even if I give him the stink eye for correcting me sometimes lol). It may be nasty out here in NOVA/DC and I'm praying tomorrow looks better (hello metro ride and walking in the rain if it doesn't) but even the weather can't bring me down. Granted I really need some Vitamin D. This Vegas girl is still having sunshine withdrawals 2 years later.

Happy Thursday guys! I hope you are finding ways to feel inspired. I am making a goal for myself (the OCD girl inside is going to die at the number on Bloglovin' at the end of this) to not read any blogs from now until the end of the month. Gasp! Wish me luck!! :)



  1. Have a fun weekend with Sarah! That's a good goal. Sometimes it's nice to take a break from technology and the craziness of blogs!

    PS-- the girl in the picture above is from Hello It's Valentine.

    Sincerely, Sara

  2. outside goals that make you do things outside of the ordinary routine are so powerful aren't they. I feel like blogging does that for me.

    and haha, I have multiple editors who read my blog...and I always smile thinking of them reading my own interesting way of punctuating my stream of consciousness. :)

  3. I can relate to being behind in things I'd hoped to be doing this year. Motivation has been lacking for the many things I want to and feel I "should" (even though I don't like that word very much) be doing. I need a friend to take me away for a weekend! I do have one coming for a visit in a few weeks, though. That will give me inspiration to clean my house, haha! Have fun, and I hope to see photos of another cake from you after you get your boxes unpacked.

  4. As long as you have the commitment, then I'm sure that the baking will follow close behind. Spring seems like the perfect time to vamp up the motivation, with that extra bit of Vitamin D.

  5. I totally get you on feeling behind! especially when you haven't unpacked, and your space isnt all too 'settled'. things will line up - it all just takes time (and LOTS of 'to do' lists!).

    good call on not reading any blogs for a bit - I do the same thing every now and then just to reground myself.
