Lately my life has been nothing but ordinary! My daily schedule is off the charts, sometimes my day & night get all mixed up, I eat in odd hours, I sleep in odd hours, and I get creative when everyone else has turned their lights out.
I don't know if it's my new-found singleness (My ex and I were pretty much like an old married couple when it came to our daily activity and schedule), or perhaps it's my day job that's not so much a day job with it's day & night shifts (I never told, but I work at a restaurant. I was a server & just got "promoted" to shift manager), or perhaps it's the someone that's with me that makes me want to stay up late with him. I guess it's a mix of all of the above. And don't get me wrong, I am not really complaining, I just sometimes feel like I am running after my own tail in trying to catch up and fit everything back into my life. I have been kinda' neglecting my shop on etsy, and I haven't been too active at the Etsy teams I am a member of- Inspiration Avenue, POE-Photographers Of Etsy, and Etsy Israel Team, but I do plan on trying to find a way to fit it all back into my schedule!
What I haven't given up on is blogland. How can I give that up?? There is nothing better than to find that moment in the day when I can sit down for a while with my computer and browse through the many blogs I follow, read what's new and exciting in their writers lives, get to know them just a little better, find some new suggestions for shopping, cooking, creative crafts and such. These blogs are my pick-me-up pill, my happy drug, my put-a-smile-on-my-face remedy, my source of inspiration!
I sure hope that my blog & my musings are a pick-me-up for some of you too! I hope I inspire you as well!
My friend Gabi, who's actually an old acquaintance that I had reconnected with just a week ago at a spontaneous reunion we were at (post and pictures will follow soon...), had said to me that she sat down and read my entire blog post history and that it was so inspiring to her that she decided to take the leap herself, and start her own blog! I am so humbled and proud, and I am so excited for Gabi for this new adventure she's embarked herself on! Please check out her blog here (it's still new, so be patient...)
Here's a few more blogs that I cannot part with. I'm keeping it to my 15 best, but you know there are many many more! I might have mentioned some of these in the past, so excuse me if you've seen them before :)
City of Dionne , Laura Evans Photography , Habitually Chic , Ponder & stitch , Ali Loves Curtis , Layers of Meaning , Maggi's Misadventures , Oh Hello Friend , Maya Made , Knock Knocking , Daughter of Cancer , Color Me Katie , Jessica Rogers , Polaroid Express , Anna Allen :: Wildflowers :: Pretty
I'll leave you with this inspiring, creative, gorgeous video. The song's pretty good too ;)
