A few years ago I blogged almost every day on my old blog Michelle Lea Designs... Talking about organization, craftyness, being mamas and everything in between. Well life got really busy. I combined my graphic design and photography passions into Michelle Lea Creative and my blogging days went away.
I miss rambling on and on in my blog posts. I'm a very quiet person, but oh can I talk once you get me started... as my poor husband can tell you. Especially if there is a football game on, I really enjoy talking then. Haha. So I hope that you will embrace my departure every once in a while from Photography and Graphic Design and get a little bit from my ramblings.
My family has moved 13 times in the past 18 years of being a military family and we always search to find a church that fits us. Maybe we weren't fully open to finding the right place, maybe the right place hadn't found us... But we have finally found what fits us at this point in our lives and we are so thankful. One of the most recent messages really hit me and promoted me to just go for it and start blogging again. Blogging what's truly in my heart and on my mind, as well as the business side of things.
It was this little quote "we may impress people with our strengths, but we connect with people through our weaknesses." I have so many weaknesses and imperfect parts of me and I have come to hope that those pieces of myself are what make me be able to see the beauty in life, in others, in the images and the stories that I capture. It's hard at times to stay positive and grateful, but I'm saying it here that I'm making the choice to be grateful and to strive to be positive and be an uplifting change in those around me. We encounter so much negative constantly during our daily lives and through social media. A single positive comment or message can have an enormous ripple effect.
In the spirit of getting my blogging self back in gear, I've been asked to guest blog with The Crafting Chicks!!! You will find a little slice of me there once a month talking about photography and some sweet little printables. Go check them out, cause they are just awesome.
ok enough rambling for now!! I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and the rest of your week.
