|My yard was invaded by pirates this summer.|
Coming up with ideas everyday plus my “real” job and my home life became too stressful. I knew deep down that I would never have a following like some of the blogs that I like to read. Stores would probably not clamor to have me write about products they sent me – for free! So for the summer I stepped away. I enjoyed our yard. I enjoyed some alone time with my husband and five nights in a row of hot food at restaurants where I didn’t have to wipe someone else’s mouth. I did a lot of thrifting and put focus on my ETSY shop, which has actually been doing pretty well. I hung out with pirates. I swam in the lake. I ate tomatoes right off the vine from our garden. I chilled in the kiddie pool. Most importantly I spent time with my growing children – one who is off to kindergarten this fall.
