Things Are Changin'

Has anyone noticed that I'm not blogging on my 'regular' days? When I started blogging, I was very unsure of my own abilities, and I only posted on Monday's, Wednesday's and Friday's mostly. I guess I wanted to hold myself accountable, but you know what, this new year has already brought a new confidence in me and I got really brave this week and started writing when I felt my thoughts bubbling up to the surface and felt that I really needed to share. I stopped worrying about stats and numbers and would anyone really even want to read what I had to say. I started to embrace {my word of 2015!} that I do have a voice and it does matter. 

So from here on out, I'll be posting on different days, at different times, no more worries and fears about the stats that say, "don't post on Thursday's , always post before 11 a.m", that may be true, but I'll be writing as my heart is inspired and hoping that my words travel to and land upon exactly the right ear, at exactly the right moment. This also means that there'll be lots of typos because I won't be proofreading a gazillion times before I hit "publish". Yes, I might be a slight bit OCD.......... bless your heart for sticking around y'all, we're in uncharted territories here, it may be a bit bumpy but this free thinking is really starting to excite me big time. Watch out world, here I come!

Welcome to the season of embrace.

Are you thinking about your word of 2015 and giving it the space it needs to change and mold you? 

Be Brave. Be Bold.

Linking At:


  1. I love it! I too have been feeling that same thing with my own little blog. I want to do more of what HE wants and worry less about the numbers and such. I think you are doing a great job and I won't mind you're typos, if you don't mid mine. haha! :)

  2. Please do write when you are inspired. This will be even more fun for me since I'll never know when a new blog of yours will pop up. The Little Farm Diary is on my one thousand gifts list.

  3. I think that's a great idea. Following stats and doing what you're "supposed" to has a way of sucking the fun right out of blogging!

  4. I LOVE IT! I'm just trying to remember to POST, instead of just stewing on things, or worse yet - writing the post, and remember to "Publish" 3, 4, or 5 days later...*sigh*

    Surprise posts are the best...


  5. Best wishes on your new blogging.. BLogging should be fun and enjoyable to you too- not just the readers.ha
    May God bless you ..and I look forward to the new blogging.

  6. Love checking in on your blog and finding a new post:)
    Love your word for 2015.

    Mine is BOLD and I am cracking up......because your last few words from this post are BE BOLD BE BRAVE.
    I post more on IG than blogging and I shared my word there for this year. Are you on IG?
    I think I am inspired to try and post more on my blog this year.....and need to get started right away.
    Happy New Year!!!

    PS....your winter kitchen looks fabulous.

  7. Oh my....I just saw on the left sidebar that yes indeed you are on IG. :)

    1. Oh Jen, my instagram is sooooo sad! I just can't do it all! This social media thing is crazy difficult for my little 47 year old self to master. It's a miracle I even got a blog up and running! No lie, it took me two months to figure out how to get this blog thing going. I even had my youngest daughter doing my instagram for me for awhile- sad I know! Maybe my word for 2016 should be 'conquer'???? ha

  8. Amy,
    Good for you!! If you have some time stop by my regular blog to see what my word for 2015 is...

    Wishing you a Happy and healthy New Year!!
