going into the new year, I've decided to give this old blog the boot.
I never really cared about it all that much, except for the occasional showing off of my family and being snarky.
Even though the dream of being a big shot blogger has crossed my mind more times than I'd like to admit, it's just not for me. I don't care enough. I'm not the kind of person who does that, and that's okay! I always found myself consumed with thoughts of "should I blog this? This would be great to blog!" and I felt that it robbed me of my experiences. That's absolutely my fault, though. People can blog and not be consumed by that, and that's awesome! It's definitely a downer in my life, though, and again I'm sad to admit that because blogging can be such a great tool.
I'm so lucky to have met and got to know so many people through this site! I'm an introvert, and special relationships are what are important to me. Friendships forged here will literally never be forgotten.
However, I'm not sad to see it go. I have so many more things to pay attention to like my (hopefully) growing family, my business I'm starting, making more time for music, traveling, learning Italian, and so many more things I hope to accomplish.
Here's to building a life that feels good & not just looks good on a blog!
