these summer mornings...

For as much as I complain about summer, I gotta tell ya, these past few mornings have been...glorious. Cool, breezy and slow...that's a good combo for some good moments.

I've been waking naturally (or with the help of a cat who hasn't caught on that I don't have to get up quite so early!), sipping coffee and watching my "church shows", taking time to gaze out the back door at the chickens scratching and pecking at the ground.

I've been wandering around in the garden while it's still cool outside, in pajamas and flip flops...checking to see what's going on with what...and why exactly are the tomatoes losing flowers like that? Hmmm....I'll have to Google that...

I've been writing a you may have noticed. Sometimes I question whether or not I should publish certain posts that I write here...too boring, too mundane, too whiny, too repetitive...but then I post anyway, for me. For my own recollection.

Honestly, I'm not even sure how many people read these words (well, I know one person does as she comments often! Hi, D!) and sometimes that makes me question whether or not I should write least here. Maybe I should just keep a journal instead...and not worry about who reads it...or not.

But then something keeps drawing me here...something keeps me sharing the mundane, the daily, the real...whether it's for one person, or a hundred.

I'm learning that I love to write. Blogging has been an enlightening process for me. And it's gone hand in hand with photography. I take photos documenting daily life...then share them here...and write a little about it (or a lot if I've had too much coffee)...and sometimes, before I know it, I've worked something out in my head. I've processed something that's been on my the question that's been in the back of my mind for a while now..."should I continue to blog?"

And the conclusion I've come to is...yes. I think I should. Because it's good for me. And hopefully, somewhere along the way, it's good for you, too.

And please, feel free to leave a comment...let me know you're out there...I'd love to hear from you...xo

hi :)
I say do want you want as far as blogging...there are so many out there now and you know what, I don't think that many leave comments as much as we used to do. I blame instagram or iphones. Easier to just "like" and move on.

I guess that is why I still like blogging...the addition of more words. And, honestly, when someone babbbles on and on on instagram it is kinda weird and not what I do on instagram.

okay, I just babbled. sorry :)
