Today marks two years for Lucky Little Mustardseed :) and although I delight in this very milestone [between you and I] some aspects of the blog must change . . . because, well, my life is starting to feel blurry.
BUT before I go any further, please do not begin to think that this is the beginning of the end for LLM. ‘Cause it’s not ;) I still LOVE writing and sharing my life with you. I just need to tweak it a little bit. For whatever reason, I put myself on this strenuous writing schedule of five days a week for year two. What was I thinking?!?!?! I honestly don’t know what I was trying to prove or what the motive was, but it totally kicked my a**! I’ve slowly realized that I am, in fact, only one woman and cannot do it all. [Man, that was difficult to write!] The blog began as a happiness project that quickly evolved into a lifestyle blog, which made me VERY happy. However, due to my overzealous ambition this past year, it left me gasping for air, time, and energy. Simply put: I want to be in front of my computer screen less and in my studio creating more. And I really think modifying the frequency of my posts will leave both you and I much happier. The quantity might be less [definitely] but the quality will be much higher. Plus, the projects can be even craftier as I will have time on my side. I mean I have so many creative ideas filling the pages of my notebook; and many of them I wanted to complete this year and sadly didn’t, because I was constantly consumed with deadlines. SO, it is what it is = I will only hold myself to one post a week [although, I am sure there will be more] AND I truly hope you will continue to go on this journey with me.

Now before I head on out to seize my day, a thank you is still in order.
What would a blog be without its readers?
I genuinely do NOT know where to start, but please realize that each and every one of you, who stop by LLM week after week, mean the world to me. This life is a beautiful one and I plan to share it [creatively] with YOU year after year.
So. Thank. You.
My heart is full and my mind is booming with new content. Let’s do this.
