When I turned around…I was already there.

Last year I posted about a few blogs that I had checked faithfully that I was swearing off of and I did…for a while.  Slowly over the course of the last few months I’ve made my way back to a couple (and found a handful more in the process). 

Looking at them now I have mixed feelings.  I don’t think they’re all they’re cracked up to be.  I’m not as anxious to see what some have to say anymore but I still check in to gain some perspective.  Many are starting to make it feel too obvious that they are just out there to push their product or service.  I appreciate everyone trying to make a living (that’s what I do, after all) but it starts to feel really impersonal.  So I make myself a mental note and try to avoid that mistake myself.

I still enjoy the pictures.  Looking at them I no longer feel the longing or envy that I did when I stopped visiting.  It’s because when I look back over all my pictures I’m happy overall.  There’s some great stuff.  Now, I can’t shoot indoor pictures to save my life right now.  I have no light in my house!  What’s a girl to do… But outside, on the road, even in the rink, I’m content with how we’re able to capture our life.  It’s a important piece to me and I’m glad to find myself here already – where I want to be.

And maybe I can find a class or something to take care of the indoor thing.


About Mama's a Mess

Who am I and what am I doing here? Well, at the end of the day I'm a mother and a wife, a lover of classic monster movies and comic books, of music, TV and movies. I'm a sucker for pop culture. I'm a fangirl. I'm an artist. As my husband always puts it, "Baby, you're a mess!" I have a penchant for creating and collecting. I feed my brain with a mix of anything from hot rods and pin-ups to handmade and natural. I like to dig in the dirt and grow things but sometimes picture myself doing it like Donna Reed. I will always, always choose to wear a dress first. I am head over heels in love with my husband and have a fantastically crazy life with him.
