Easter Eggs and Blogging Thoughts

March 21, 2012

Yes, it’s early. But the big display of the box called my name and, honestly, I wanted to take some pretty egg pictures! The goofiest part?  I got a tiny bit upset in the grocery store over the eggs – they’re all stamped! How am I supposed to take pretty pictures of eggs if they’re all stamped up? (One more reason to add to the list for buying eggs from a farm when we can!) It worked out, though. Just an FYI in case you’re a weirdo like me and have similar thoughts: the stamp almost totally fades with boiling and it was completely gone after we dyed the eggs. Also? Red wine vinegar works just fine in a pinch.

Completely Unrelated: I’ve been thinking about blogging a lot lately.  While I’m thinking of all of the things I want to do with an “extra” 20ish+ hours in my week again when I’m not working, blogging is one of the only internet-related things that stays on the list.  I really do enjoy it and I want to focus more on actually writing more in this space along with the photos.  Somehow vocalizing goals just makes them feel legit, so I figured it might be good to talk about the thoughts. I want to be in this space more.  Focused and planned and not taking forever for a post, but with a bit more beefy content again.  I’m not planning anything like, “I will make X number of post with this, this and this topic being on each day.” But I have started a list a mile long of things that I haven’t had focused time to write about in a while that I’d love to talk about with all of you. So I thought I’d put it out there again – do you guys have any requests? Do you come here just to see some pics for a few minutes and not even read the words anyway? If so, I’d love to know that! Do you like the everyday rambling more than posts with legit content? Something I’ve talked about that you want to see more? I’m just curious. I know there are lots of you lurking out there and I would so, so love for you to say hi and especially for you to include a link to your own blog if you have one along with your comments!

    I do read the words!! – Very long posts (starting at perhaps triple the length of yours there above) I do more skip through than read, I got to admit (and, yep, I often post very long – definitely to long – blurps myself on my own blog!)…
    Did I mention that parenthesises make reading not exactly easier?
    Hm…I did not mention yet how much I love your images!! (And yes, they are the things making me come here!)
    The blog with (to) long articles – and I got one with VERY short articles as well 🙂
    Very lovely shots…

      Thanks Sanne! I’m the same way with skimming once posts on blogs start to get really long:)

    I am definatley most attracted by your images but I like that style of writing you use when your giving a quick overview. Like your post on Jan 25. It is unique and I just love it. It is like just like your pictures – a tantalizing slice.

    In terms of subject, I like hearing about simlifying, your daughter (I have 2 boys and she is just so cute), your thrifty finds, gardening and your photography business.

    BTW – Have you ever thought about selling prints on Etsy?

      Thanks Karen – great input:) I haven’t thought about selling prints on Etsy, but if anyone wants some they’re welcome to get in touch and we could figure something out!

    I’m a fan of your blog! I love your writing and photography and especially appreciate the sentiment of working to appreciate the beauty of domestic simplicity – something I strive to remember daily. Your blog helps me do that.
    I can’t remember how I stumbled upon your blog, but I’ve been reading for a while now. And, being from the desert of Arizona, I especially love the photographs of country roads, produce stands and lush climate of your home state. 🙂
    I recently turned my blog to private (hoping it’s only temporary), but would love to have you as a reader, if you are interested. Musings of a Twin Mama.
