out of season?
solo post - L
Don't Clementines just taste better at Christmas-time? I bought these for T because she loves to eat fruit. But these really aren't very good. I think it's a combination of things – the wrong season and product of the wrong country (these are from USA and the best are from Spain).
This is sort of how I'm feeling about my blog– it's a combination of things that is leaving me disappointed. I just don't feel like the posts, or the photos, have been good for a while. I feel like it has lost the charm (if it had any) and simplicity that we started out with back in August. I'm afraid if I take a break for a while, I may never get back to it. I have enjoyed blogging so much and have met so many ladies that feel like true friends. So more than anything I'm afraid of losing them. To all of you who are dedicated readers and leave comments, I appreciate you way more than your can imagine. Or maybe you can imagine, because I know you know how good it feels – how much inspiration and motivation it gives you – how it brightens your day. I hesitate to even say this, but I have to admit, some days more than others, I get frustrated that my comment average is probably 10 or less a day. It's like trying so hard to be someone's friend and they just keep ignoring you or turning down your invitation. Isn't that how it feels? – when you visit and leave comments day, after day, after day and they never come to visit you, ever. Can anyone else admit that they feel this way every once in while or I'm I just extra sensitive? I know mine/ours is not a polished blog – not much there to fill your minds with or leave you thinking, or inspired, no wisdom, or humor. It's just a simple blog that has possibly completed it's purpose for mother and daughter's first year of spreading wings – discovering our new lives apart. Or... maybe I just bit into a bitter seed and the next bite will be sweeter. Maybe these clementines aren't so bad after all - just different.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
