I have been thinking a lot about my blog recently. Where do I want it to go?
How should it change to reflect the person I am now? Because I have
I now live 1800 miles away from where I lived when I started writing
Ash Tree Cottage. My life has changed in so many ways. A new state,
a new city, a new house. My husband and I sold our business and he
started a new career and now I am without one. My Daddy died three
years (closing in on four now) and my Mom moved down to Texas with
us and is now living with us.
Life altering changes.
Yet despite those changes there are some aspects of our lives that share
common threads. My husband is now working with a friend he has
known since childhood. Texas is the place where my husband and I met
and were married. Although I am not a native Texan, this move has been a
type of homecoming.
But now that the dust is finally settling on our move, I can't help but think what is
next for me? Anything that I do will have to take my elderly mother into
consideration. She has become more frail and needs more assistance, so launching
a career outside of my home does not seem to be very feasible now.
The one constant for the past few years has been my blog. Throughout the
upheaval of the move, my blog has been my grounding. It has been a
sanctuary where I have been able to connect the loose threads of my life.
I have thought of the cosmetic changes. A new blog background perhaps?
Will that be enough?
More craft projects, recipes?
However these changes express themselves, there will be changes.
And change can be a good thing. I think I am ready for it.
It will be an new adventure and I hope you will come along with me.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
