I've been thinking a lot about this space of mine. About my absence from it. About posting once a week, if that. About the dreams I had for this space. 





It hasn't been anything of those things much lately. I'm consumed with work, then dinner, then bedtime, then dishes and at least one chore, then I'm done. It's netflix time. It's scrolling through facebook time. 

But I miss you blog. I'm thinking about changing you a bit. A new name. A new look. New goals and devotion. I look at my friend Lauren who has steadily grown her blog in just a year. Sheesh, through hard work, girl you are an inspiration to me! And I'll think, I can do that. 

But it takes discipline, and time. Something I've been selfish and lazy with. new season of "hell on wheels" i'm talking to you. And I want to be devoted and thoughtful with my time. I want to hone skills and writing abilities. I want to proudly share my blog with people. Instead of jokingly, "hey, I have 9 followers, it's a big deal". 

I saw the girls from A Beautiful Mess at the WEst Elm in Nashville and I thought, "Oh My Gosh, it's them! I'm finally seeing famous people in Nashville!!!"

Anyway, I have no intention of being "famous people". I have no intention of getting free stuff or advertisements. I want a space I can be proud of. So, I'm going to clean the unfolded laundry off of my desk and install that wacom tablet. download some photoshop elements with my amazon giftcard (from christmas mind you) and go to work. 

Thanks for being faithful readers, and sticking through the lull.

As a full-time and working mom, I find it really hard to take advantage of treating myself.  I think it's the mom m.o. We, for some unknown reason, somehow as a whole silently agree that it's okay to put your family first and be some sort of martyr of fashion and glamour. But there are really little things that we can do as moms to treat ourselves.

For example, I haven't had a haircut for probably a year. While this is normal for me, I grew up this way, it really isn't the best thing for my hair health nor for my self confidence. I mean, a girl can only top knot so many days a week before 1.) her head hurts and 2.) her hair starts to feel pretty boooorrrrinnngg.

So I'm getting my haircut. Huzzah! I don't know how, I've been pinning lots of ideas for, well, the last year.  So, I'll come up with something - but let's face it, I need it.  As seen below.

And not only that - I feel super hip to be getting my hair-did at the famous Parlour & Juke ! 

I'm thinking something low-maintenance - because I didn't style my hair even before baby, stylish, breezy, bouncy, fun!

I'd love to hear your ideas!
