{random thoughts...}

{caution-lots of rambling going on below}

The truth is I love to blog...
even tho I don't have a million followers{love to my followers}, comments, or post I still love to blog! 
I didn't know much about blogging when I started..I noticed other blogs get bigger and bigger and made it my goal to do the same- I was SO very excited to start my very own blogging empire!  LOL

Well, it just doesn't happen like that.  You have to really make it a job and contribute several hours to it to really get noticed!  I'm not talking about s a random post here and have to have consecutive posts, follow other blogs & ask for them to do the same, post comments and most of all stand out above all the 1000's of blogs with the same concept.


So, here I am still blogging after 2+ years!  My initial idea for my blog was going to be "a view into our home addition and remodel"  My plan was to show y'all how we transformed our modest 2 bedroom 1 bath into a semi dream home & I throw in a few other things I liked to do.   At the time projects were going as planned until the real estate market to a HUGE dive and my wallet started to become slimmer and slimmer until there were no extra funds to finish.  We made a wise decision to hold off on any further projects.  Let me tell you our  home was eating up all our extra money and then some.  We had to stop or we were going to end up struggling just to make ends meet.  "The truth about home remodels" was clearly what I should have titled my blog!  :) 

I have my moments where I just want to pack up and move.
I look around and see all that still has to be done and it stresses me out.
I can name about a 100 things that need to be completed.
 I write this random post as a reminder to myself that there is more to life than a house- there's a home I  have to fill with memories, love & peace- the rest will come in time.
It's very easy to get in a rut and forget.

Wishing all a random thought!

Well said...I have that conversation with myself often. It is so easy to get caught up in doing more and more...but in the end if you just fill your home with love that is all you need :)
