Going forth

Each night as I reflect on my day and prepare a blog journal to share with the world, I have a decision to make "What do I want to write about next?" But as sore wrists and hectic schedules interrupt my nightly ritual I have paused to reexamine my purpose. I am inspired daily by my bookmarked blogs which pave the way for me to share my own design thoughts and finds, however, I feel a shift of focus is needed.Over the past few weeks, I have invested more time (and money) into furthering my photography education, thinking more seriously about moving in that career direction. I have also rented a violin and signed up for classes, with hope that I will be able to make more than a screeching noise. And finally, my pilot letterpress is sitting by the window - dusted off and ready to go.This being said, I am hoping to spend my spare time (aka nights after work) pursuing my new hobbies ... but where does this leave the blog, you might ask? I have thoroughly enjoyed blogging about things that cross my path - anything from decorating to food and have been honored to have collected a modest audience. However, I now plan to blog more about my life and design process: the path to my wedding day ("wedding wednesday"), the trials and tribulations of a young letterpress printer, my struggling etsy shop, a convergence of my darling perspective photography blog, and so much more.
So I hope you will sit tight and bear with me as I figure out my place in the blogosphere :)[images are from a collection of my photos entitled "looking up"]
I would appreciate any comments you may have about my thoughts..good or bad :)

Hurray for the violin!! You're such a gracious blogger. I tend to leave my public in limbo for weeks at a time!
