I am beyond obsessed with coral and mint.
Any shade of coral with mint has me smitten.

I have a confession: I have really had a hard time wanting to blog lately. The blogging world seems to be going towards giveaways and sponorships. I have only been blogging since 2009 but I've been reading blogs for much longer. I fell in love with the blogging world because it was an amazing place to be inspired and learn about others.
I found my voice reading blogs and writing here at this little place. I would have never met my friend Steph had it not been for blogging and thus I would still be lost here in Norfolk and would not have the amazing job that I have. Blogging has been such a theraputic outlet for me and has given me something to focus on when the military has had our life all over the place.
When I am feeling uninspired or need a reminder about following my dreams I turn to the blogging world. When my twitter and blog roll feed are bombarded with giveaways it kinda makes me sad.
I get doing sponsored posts for brands you love, trust or believe in, but I also think you can do that in an authentic way if you do them more than a few times a month. I do sponsored posts sometimes so I am not saying I am against them. I am saying I still want to hear your voice when I read the post. I come to a blog to read about the bloggers ideas, thoughts etc. I rarely read posts that promote their sponsors, I am more likely to read a guest post by their sponsor.
I am trying to be more open to the change in blogging, but I have to admit I miss the way it used to be.
the hubs always seem to capture me laughing and looking crazy ;)
