Old Friends and New Beginnings

8/29/22


I was feeling a little blue and uninspired last week (by life in general and my home and garden in particular) when a dear friend reached out to check on me.  Even though we haven't chatted in a while it was like riding a bike, the memories came back as soon as we started talking.


One thing led to another and before you know it we were talking about the "good old days" (which makes us sound really old), specifically the deeper connections we made in the early days of blogging.  Not surprisingly that's where we met and felt an immediate kinship of spirits.  Our beliefs and decor were similar and we each spent our early mornings with coffee at our computers catching up on our favorite bloggers and writing our own posts.



It turns out we have both become disenchanted with the fast pace reels and lack of intimacy that instagram holds as well as the slick sales and advertising that most blogs of today include.  


We miss the early days of blogging.




Like school girls calling each other on the wall mounted phone with the mile long curly cord to plan whether we were wearing dresses the next day, we got our heads together and came up with a plan of attack.  


I have to tell you I haven't been this excited creatively in a long while.  We are busy working out all the details but trust me, if you miss those old blog connections like we do, you are going to love what we have planned and will be sharing very soon.


And in case anyone hasn't called or messaged to ask, how are you doing old friend?


xo, Patty
