2013: ONE Goal

I go back to work in a couple of days (sigh), and I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about how to manage it all. News flash–I don’t manage it all. Shocked? Yeah, didn’t think so. I haven’t been blogging as well as I’d like to lately, so I made myself ONE goal for the whole year. You ready for it?



This means a lot of things for me. I’ve made the mistake of thinking that every single one of my posts needs to be life-changing or mega-influential. Posts can take hours (yes, hours), and I simply don’t have the time for that on a regular basis. I’m realizing that I don’t have to have a post loaded with pictures or full of lengthy tutorials. My husband reminded me the other day that people like to hear from me–he’s deep–and that I don’t have to fret over posts being “worthy” every time I write something. Well played, husband.


So there you have it. I want to blog more. I want to blog better. That’s my goal. There may be days that I fail miserably at it, but stick with me! I’ve said it out loud which means it has to happen now.

My first plan of attack? Share something I think is beautiful. I’ve been catching up on blog reading (WAY behind!), and my jaw dropped at this transformation by Lauren at Pure Style Home. It’s a client’s space, and I so wish I was that client!

Here’s the before shot


 And here’s the after. Stunning, I know.


All of that being said, I’ll be back next week with a pretty big project we’ve been working on! Don’t forget–if you want some daily updates, follow along on Instagram!
