Only blog if you LOVE it. Only make it if you want to eat it. Only photograph it if you think it looks pretty, sparkly, or otherwise awesome. Only write about it if you’re really into it. Only wear it if you think it’s major. When it comes to blogging… only do it if you love it. – Joy the Baker
Confession: I LOVE blogging. It’s my new thing. Not only is it super fun, but it is also a really cool outlet for creativity. A new found and fast developing passion. Jesus, life, food, sun, love, freckles, lists, tea – these are just a few of things I love to write about.
This week was a bit of a whirlwind. In a good way. I made grilled cheese and tomato soup two nights in a row…there was no need to write out a recipe on here because it was Campbell’s and sourdough with cheddar. Dill pickles on the side. Simple. As I thought about what to write about today, I was at a loss for words. Life was neither too boring nor too overwhelming. There just wasn’t much to say. Except that…I really love blogging!
I read a couple of posts from one of my all-time favorite bloggers, Joy the Baker. She is always super inspiring and encouraging for me in my pursuit of this whole blogging thing. Even if you are not a blogger, you will get a kick out of her witty point of view. Here is Part I and Part II on 10-Real Talk Blog Tips.
Another confession: I am still figuring out editing (words and photos). I am still developing my personal style. I am still trying to make time. I am still making it a priority to learn from and be taught by those further along in this whole sphere. So, bear with me. And while I am still figuring all of this stuff out, I am going to enjoy the heck out of it!
My biggest inspiration will always be my God. He has given me absolute freedom and grace and says, “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17. He also says, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31. So let’s eat, drink and be merry – and I’ll blog about it – ALL to the glory of God!
Happy Valentines Day!!! ❤
