It's possible you may have noticed my recent absence of (oh my goodness) a month or so. It's simple really. A little over a year ago, frustrated as a newlywed by the shocking lack of resources available to help an old fashioned girl like myself simplify and enjoy everyday living, I set out to remedy the situation myself. I started this blog, Vacuum in Pearls, and attempted to create a place to document my advances and encourage others as I become a better housekeeper and wife. It was a lovely experience. Until the day I looked around and found I was doing more blogging about than actual "becoming." Pardon my transparency, but it was time for a priorities check. I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss it, but God gave me the grace to think about it a lot less often than I thought I would.
Anyway, I'm back! Probably not as often as I was previously, but still back. I've honestly embraced this year as a time to simplify, downsize, organize, and get back to basics. (Cliche right?) I'm thinking....fresh. Like my new blog layout (that's my stove back there by the way).
As I revamped my blog I took a good hard look at my "To Do in 2010" list and stuck my tongue out at the many things left undone this year (see why I needed a break). I'm bumping them to 2011. Stay tuned for a new and improved to-do list for the coming year. What are some of your expectations for this year?
I hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas season, and that 2011 is treating you well. I hope you'll stick around and celebrate this fresh year with me!
p.s. I just have to tell you that this weekend I became a virtual superwoman and cleaned out, organized, and labeled both my linen closet and pantry. Aren't you proud?
