"Memorial Day used to be a solemn day of mourning, a sacred day of remembrance
to honor those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. Businesses closed
for the day. Towns held parades honoring the fallen, the parade routes often
times ending at a local cemetery, where Memorial Day speeches were given and
prayers offered up. People took the time that day to clean and decorate with
flowers and flags the graves of those the fell in service to their country."
Wow! Sometimes change comes about in our lives in different ways and at different times that are a bit unexpected. Sounds pretty familiar if you're human, right? Well this has definitely been the case for me and our family in the past few months! As for RustiChic, don't worry, it's not going away...but it is changing.
As I touched on this a bit here, I've really been contemplating on my past year of blogging and everything it has entailed (remember??? I was totally clueless). It's never really formed into something that felt true to myself as I have many passions and interests which I often wanted to share and discuss with you, buuuut didn't feel this was the place to do that...a furniture/design kind of blog, you know? I'm actually even admitting to you to telling my husband (don't hate me!), "I seriously think I'd bang my head against a wall if this was all I ever wrote about...I'd leave it in a heartbeat."
BUT HOLY COW!!!
I GOT A SERIOUS BLOGGING BUG AND I LOVE IT!!!!!
I love the people and community, the inspiration, the encouragement, all of the education/teaching ~ it's unique and like nothing else, truly.
SO, I've felt conflicted and trying to resolve this "dilemma" of mine. Are you still with me???
I sure hope you'll stick around, because NOW, I am SUPER excited, and I don't think about banging my head against a wall. ;-)
I love design & I love building and refinishing furniture, but beyond that I have greater passions.... Most of them revolve around relationships and lifestyle choices concerning health/fitness, family, and parenting. I'm a musician, an advocate for those who can't speak for themselves, and a pretty serious food and fashion fanatic. How would I balance all of these I thought??? It sounds like a big explosion of confusion. Hmmm....
Well, the answer is = I don't have all the answers,
and I'm ok with that.
I hope you are too! :-)
So here's the scoop!
I'm very excited to be working with Kimberly of My Whole Heart Design to create a new blog page which will incorporate RustiChic furniture and designs. The new name of the blog will be:
Hello there everyone! If you've been following along on the Facebook page, you'll know that things are changing around here at RustiChic. I couldn't be more excited! I wanted to give you a heads up and will write more details later tonight. Thank you to everyone who joins along on here ~ I very much appreciate you!
