busy picking berries

Hello friends. I've been keeping quiet around these parts for quite a while now. 
Sometimes I just need a bit of time away in order to live the full and happy life I dream about- The one where I take in all the little moments with my loved ones, savor juicy summer strawberries, sip a cup of tea while the thunderstorms roll through and feel content with the here and now. 
All of this social media stuff- Facebook, Blogs, Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter... It's always been a little overwhelming for me. I do love the inspiration I find via blogs, Etsy and Pinterest, but I can only take so much. I've spent way to much time sitting at my computer, thinking about all the things I want to make and do, but hardly any time actually doing anything. 
I'm an introvert through and through and this constant communication and documentation of my life, well, I don't really like it. It's not how I want to live.
So I've decided to tone it all down a bit. The posts here are going to be few and far between at times. No more Tumblr. No more Twitter. If we're friends on Facebook, I rarely check it so please contact me through e-mail from now on.
I want to focus my time and attention on the people in my life that matter most. There is nothing more important to me. I believe this life is all there is and I have to make the most of it.
 So, if I forget about this space again in the future, please don't worry about me. There is nothing wrong. In fact, I feel like the luckiest person in the world at 23 to have love in my life and to live where I do. I'm just soaking it all in.


This Moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.Happy Friday, everyone! Summertime is here and we're soaking up every sunshiny minute of it.
