i need your help
happy monday! i hope you all had a fabulous easter weekend. i had a lovely time with family. my husband and i did not buy easter baskets and bunnies this year (too busy). and it actually felt kind of nice. the day felt a little less commercial. we celebrate the day for other reasons that have nothing to do with little candy chicks. and it didn’t really feel much like easter with two inches of snow on the ground when we woke up. but i just liked giving myself permission to not have to follow the rules. so many times we feel bound to a holiday because it is what we are supposed to do, how we grew up or worried by how disappointed our children will be. we might do eggs next year, but this year it felt nice to declutter our lives from the cheap eggs and baskets that usually get thrown away a week later.
i am super excited because we got all of the dirt in and beds built for a summer veggie garden. i have no idea what i am doing, but i am overjoyed at the thought of growing my own garden. growing up i have memories of picking pumpkins in our backyard and the one summer we had so many strawberries that we didn’t know what to do with them all.
onto other business matters, i have been thinking a lot about the look and feel of my blog and website. i have been battling what i want my tagline to be for over a year now. i could never decide what i wanted, so i just left it blank. i am still struggling with it. i want people to see in one phrase what my blog and business is all about. finding beauty in the broken places is one option, but i am totally open to suggestions. so if you have any ideas, i would love to hear them.
