Recently Lis at Dandelion Seeds & Dreams asked What is calling to you in your life? I've been giving alot of thought to this question. I would like to say I'm passionately drawn to creating art or taking photographs & building my creative business. I know eventually I will be in that place again but right now I feel that dream is simmering slowly on the backburner. Something else is calling to me now.
I want to sink into my family life & glory in homemaking. I want to clean and organize, purge belongings & surround my family only with things we love. I want to create family traditions & rituals. I want to celebrate our private world. I want to learn to cook. I want to learn to use my sewing machine. I want to plan fun family times. I want to be a mommy with no distractions pulling at me. I want to do a family budget. Cut coupons. Get excited over cleaning supplies. I want to explore crafts that also celebrate the home: making pretty picture frames & scrapbooks, hand embroidering pillowcases, making ragdolls. I want to learn to garden. I want to take walks & go on picnics with my family. I want to take better care of myself so I can take care of my family. I want to glory in my family life and possibly even have another baby. I want to be a DOMESTIC GODDESS!
I guess that's where I am right now. Hopefully you will begin to see me putting these heart urgings into actions & documenting them with my blog. I intended this to be more of a photography/art/ creative journey blog but I feel to be authentic it needs to be an artful LIFE blog instead. More of me & my daily life struggles & dreams. Hope it's not too boring for readers!
