my biggest qualm this year has been that i have far too much that i want to do, and when i try to do everything, i neglect a part of everything (even now as I am typing this up, i am checking to make sure I have made an instagram post which then leads to me looking at old photos and comparing how big the babe has gotten as i look at him laying on the floor attempting to crawl—uuuuugh so distracted).

but this year instead of committing to do more better, i have decided to dial it back to my bones, staying focused on one major task at a time until its completed. i would love to be able to do more at once, but being a jack of all trades tends to make me mediocre at a lot of things.

one of the things I have been pouring a lot of energy into lately is a book that I have been working on for the last year. not have i been writing content for it, but i have been designing it as well. i am now at the stage of getting quotes and hoping to get it printed soon. i will share more next month when i hopefully have more details to share, but i will say that I am mega proud of myself for staying the course and pushing through all the baby interruptions.

my blog has taken a back seat as of late due to mamahood, but also to technical difficulties that were supposed to make posting a little more convenient. content has been a little all over the place as i find my rhythm of what i would like to focus on. the truth is, there isn’t a whole lot going on most days because there is still so little i can do before babe needs to go down for a nap, or eat. as soon as we start making headway with vendors on this book, i will resume consistent posts, but until then they will be a bit scattered.

macrame is another area i have put on the back burner. i have so many ideas that i want to create, but it takes a lot of prep time, so until i get the head space for it, i am tabling it until the summer.

finally, i think the biggest reason i am so distracted is because i don’t really have a space to keep things organized and in its proper place. keith and i are looking to change that this year and i am really excited about it because its been a really long time since i have had a space for all of my office stuff and for me too.
