New Beginnings

Notice anything different about the ol’ blog? Yep, a different look (a little bit more straight-from-the-box to make life easier for me) — and I removed almost all the old posts. By next month, I’ll have been blogging for fifteen years. But I haven’t been ‘feeling it’ lately. A large part of that is because my life (the interesting bits of it, anyway) is 95% all-M-all-the-time, and I’m not comfortable sharing all the stories that really belong to her. Which leaves me at a loss for what to write here. At the same time, I’m not convinced I want to stop, either.

I realize that ‘the internet never forgets’, but there’s still a refreshing feeling about taking down all the old stuff (except for what people visit for most often: my zipper tutorial and the paper houses) and giving myself the freedom to post whatever without thinking about what’s come before. And it was nice to clear out a load of old files from the files on the server — it’s all backed up, of course!

Anyway, I don’t know how this change will affect how or what I post; I just wanted to give it a try.

In other new beginnings, our chickens FINALLY started laying eggs last week. It was later than I expected, and I’d given up on them laying at all this year, since it’s cold out now, and the days are getting shorter and shorter. But now we have eggs… some eggs. Every so often. They’re very good eggs, though!

  1. hi Anna, I love the new look! I have been away from blogging for a bit, I am so glad I came back just in time to see this post, beautiful photos, your priorities are spot on in my opinion,

  2. Hi Anna,
    Been reading your blog for several years now. I am sad to see it pruned. You posts about baby M inspired and I like how creative you get when you do things for baby M. The little sink and then the Halloween crafts , Montessori ideas. I have a girl few months elder to M and it is fun trying out these things with her. Hope you won’t entirely stop. Love to baby M. Cheers

    1. I don’t think I will entirely stop, and it’s really nice to hear that you’ve enjoyed the posts about the activities I do with M. I’ll definitely try to include more of that!

  3. Hello Anna, we used to knit together *many* years ago at Foyles. I’ve just been scrolling through catching up with all your blog posts – it’s amazing that you’re still going after fifteen years! I have two little boys now too and my blog has also gone quiet as I’m not sure what to share about them so I totally understand what you mean. But it’s really lovely to read your posts and see how well you guys are doing :-)

    1. Hello! I miss London a little bit, but I miss the Foyles group a lot! Just the best group of ladies to sit, knit, and chat with. Have fun with your boys!
