Happy New Year!!!!

Yes. I know today isn't January 1st but I've been a little busy. So, with that being said....

Happy New Year!!!

A new month, a new year and a whole new decade! Wow! I have so many plans and dreams for this year rolling around in my head. The problem is that I've been a too occupied to even write them down. As always, I seem to take on too much. I get all of these crazy ideas in my head and then I get overwhelmed! Yes. I am overwhelmed already in this new month, new year and new decade!

Not to worry though. I'll make it through. I always do. I just keep on keeping on!

I've been thinking a lot about my blog...or my neglecting it. It's not that I don't have things to say...because you all know I'm never short on words. It's just that I get a little busy and it's not on the top of my priority list. This blog has taken on a life of it's own and found some followers. I'm glad that I've touched some of you out there. It never was my intention but I am so glad I did. I've "met" some wonderful people through it.

I often wonder if I should change my blog. Should I focus on one crafting, cooking, decorating or whatever, like some other bloggers do and not so much on a little bit of this or a little bit of that. I wonder if I should try to be one of those bloggers that work towards having a ton of followers? Even though I've turned some down, I wonder if I should take on advertisers so I can make a little bit of money? I wonder if I should give the people what they want?

But then, I ask myself this one question..."Why do you blog?" I always go back to why I started blogging in the first place. I started this blog for me, my family and mostly Allison. I intended it to be a place for me to document our lives...a sort of journal with pictures. A place where I can just be myself with my thoughts, feelings and ideas. A place where long after I'm gone, Allison can look back and really know me, see how much I adored her and remember all the fun we had while she was growing up.

After answering this question, I find myself staying true to the title I picked for my blog those several years ago..."This is My Life." If you are a follower, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I get all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that you care about what I'm doing in My Life. If this is the first day you've stumbled upon my little blog out in blogland, Welcome. I hope you stay for a while because you'll see a little bit of this and a little bit of that because...This is my Life and I truly am a little bit of this and a little bit of that!

Oh! You all know that I like pictures with my blog entries so since this entry started off with welcoming in 2010, here is my pic. When I think about my plans, dreams and goals for 2010, I've decided that I want New Beginnings for this year! Yes! I'm starting fresh! Come join me!

Have Fun! Pin It

Happy New Year!
I am glad you are a 'little bit of this and a little bit of that' as you say! That's what makes life so interesting! I turn to books and magazines when I only want to see 'one' thing, be it cooking or decor.... When I want inspiration, however, I turn to blogs. I am excited about 2010, and I just know good things are in the air! ;)
