So I’m feeling completely guilty because I have been such a bad blogger this year. I left the blog unattended for over 6 months. AHHH!
I have had my reasons though. Back in December 2014 I wrote a post about my resolutions for the new year. I wanted to grow, I have succeeded in a couple ways and failed miserably in others. It has not been a full year yet, but I think it’s time to review what has happened. It will help explain my disappearance from the blog a little bit. Here are my 3 goals – and how it’s been going.
1. Professionally I would like to grow my capacity.
Well, I got a new, very large contract about a month after writing that post. A single graphic design client that can take up to 40 to 50 hours a month. On top of that single client, I have kept up with and grown http://squeakerbox.marketing. Things are good on the business front, it just took some time to adjust to handling that much work again. The pressure was eased a little by letting the blog take a chill out moment. Now I hope to keep it all going… with 3 Peppers as well.
2. For my home, my goal is to grow, quite literally.
This goal had to do with my garden. At first I succeeded… then I failed miserably. I had a beautiful vegetable garden until the end of May. Now it looks like an overgrown jungle, and I need to tear it all up and start over again. Florida is so damn hot, keeping up with it was a nightmare. I also had some trouble with the smell, but more about that later.
3. The third way I’d like to grow in 2015 is to grow our family.
This is the most exciting news and update of them all – I’m pregnant! 20 weeks along with a baby girl. I couldn’t be more excited. Surprisingly this was the easiest of the goals for me to succeed in. I was really worried it was going to take a long time and be a difficult process, but 1 month after starting to try – wham, bam, baby in the belly. The first semester I had some horrible morning sickness, most smells would make me throw up (my garden being one of them) but starting about week 12, I have been feeling much better! Now I’m just excited for my sweet girl to arrive. I’m sure you’ll notice a swing on the blog to feature more baby specific projects
All in all I think this year has been off to a successful start. Now with about 4 more months to go it’s about time I get back to blogging. It’s like “back to school” – “back to blogging”. To kick it off I gave 3 Peppers a face lift. Hope you enjoy what’s to come and thank you for following along.
