miscellany mother's day.

It's here. And while I really enjoy blogging, I'm not really sure what to blog about right now. I mean, I have pictures. And I could work on that bible study. But, honestly...I need a break. I've been blogging for two years...and this girl is just tired. I'm in a social networking funk right now. I feel disconnected because I don't have a Facebook, so I don't know what's going on in the world. I haven't figured out that whole "real life connections" thing. I have a Twitter...but really, who tweets? It hasn't really caught on yet with the people I interact with the most. And then, I have this thing called a blog. And it's a really great way to document things...but I just don't know how.
I need a vision. Seriously. I'm so not kidding. It seems like my whole life is up in limbo right now. I have a major that I like. I have some ideas of what I want to do when I "grow up" but no serious "green lights". When I'm asked what I'm doing after graduation (in December 2012), my typical answer is something along the lines of "Well, I'm counting on the world ending in December 2012..." to which I normally receive weird stares. Apparently I don't look like one of those "2012" people. And I'm not...really...but it's a good excuse. It just seems like I really can't see past 2012. I know that 2013 could theoretically occur...but it's so...far away. I mean, I'll be twenty-three in 2013. That's old. I'm trying to embrace the freedom in not being tied down to a specific career path, but it's hard. It's hard not knowing what lies ahead in two years. It's hard not knowing what path I need to take...what classes, what internships, what whatever. It's so uncertain. But, I know God has a plan for me. So, I'll rest in that. 

I've been perusing on Pinterest this afternoon. Future home decor. Yep. That's where it's at. :)

I think this would make a great children's library. Yes. I want to have a children's library in my house.

I love these spray-painted pink frames.

And lastly, I like these embroidery hoops with fabric in them. I'm thinking this could be dorm room decor for next year. I need color. And those dorms are lacking in the color. Anyone have any hoops to donate to the cause? 


  1. You don't have to know yet. Everyone assumes that you should have everything planned out, but you DON'T. It took me until I was 25 to figure it out, and even now, I'm not for certain what I'm doing with a law degree. You've got lots of time, boo :)

  2. About to go find you on pinterest. It's my favorite. And I understand the "funk" you're in. We all just need a break sometimes.

  3. that's why i took a break during lent - to try refocusing the vision i had for my blog. i don't know that i really gained any insight into where to go from here, but it was still nice to take the break. enjoy it, and when you come back, you'll be refreshed and revitalized.
