Priorities | Level and Lace

There is something about a brand new year that always makes you re-evaluate your priorities. Maybe it is hearing all of the New Year's resolutions. Maybe it is thinking about the fact that another year has gone by in the blink of an eye. Who knows? All I do know is that my priorities have gotten lost along the way.

I've been struggling for awhile with this blog. Trying to figure out what I want it to be and how much a part of my life I want it to be. And I've decided that what is important in my life is not this blog or having it be huge. I want to get through school and through the week without feeling like I'm going to fall apart for how much I am putting on my plate. I want to have a healthy marriage. I want to accomplish things. And if that means spending less time here worrying about this place, then so be it.

So, I have some good news and some bad news.

The bad news (depending on your perspective) is that I'm not going to be posting so much (or at least as much as I was posting back when I was a "good blogger"). I'm just not feelin' it. The posts that I have been writing at just lackluster. I've focused more on quantity than quality. So from now on I'm just going to post as I see fit, or as I actually have something to say. And for once I'm not going to beat myself up about that. I might write a couple times a week, I might write a couple times a month. It just depends on what I want to write about. If I lose followers, I'll survive. If I never gain another follower for as long as I blog, it will be because I didn't let this blog consume my life. And that will make me feel happy and successful.

The good news is that I am going to be focusing on the thing that I love most about blogging! The thing that is important to me are the relationships that I have developed through blogging. I'll be focusing more on your blogs and reading the awesome things that you have to say. And adding my own two cents here and there. Hopefully this means actually responding to my emails. ;)

And now I have something new to share with you guys!

I've been working on this new blog for a little while, trying to figure out exactly when would be a good time to introduce this. And there was no better time than the present.

This will be a compilation of anything style and design related that I may want to post about. It's going to stay simple, mostly pictures and minimal writing. It won't be updated daily, but as I have something to post. This is my new baby, and something I expect to take more of my attention that this blog here.

If the things you love about my blog are my fashion updates, diy posts, building projects, or anything home decor related I suggest you head over there now. It's where all that stuff will be located. ;)

So... things are going to be different around here. Hope you guys will stay with me for the ride, but if not I understand!
