My blog is filled with little mentions of nothings. Sweet nothings. Not so sweet nothings. Nothing that somehow manages to capture everything. To paraphrase the Seinfeld people, it’s a blog about nothing. It’s the best though, don’t you think? Having a blog about nothing. There’s freedom in that. Freedom to talk to you like this, to say hi, how are you going folks! Freedom to blog about clothes then the next minute ask you to consider where you spend your money to make a more considered contribution. I get to beg you to be kind, then demand you be great in the same week.
I saw on of those internet style meme things tonight, to make a swift change of subject as I do, that said the true measure of the strength of a man is how gently he loves his wife. I saw that and I almost cried. Isn’t that the most beautiful thing? Maybe it seems that way because I am blessed enough to be fiercely, wonderfully, gently loved. Maybe it’s because it’s a little late and I’m feeling a little sappy. As you do. I couldn’t get it out of my head. I’m going to make a print for our bedroom with some corresponding wife quote. Something sappy that makes people want to vomit sounds perfect to me.
This week I updated our vision board. Do you have one of those? We do. For a while it was a we did thing as it sat lonely and neglected in the corner of our bedroom. There’s nothing more confronting as a daily reminder that you haven’t taken the time to dream in a while. So over the past week I started tearing out pictures from magazines and junk mail. I wrote letters to myself expressing the things I want for 2014. I let myself get lost in the idea of anything being possible… It was wonderful. I highly recommend it.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
Hi! I’m Melissa Walker Horn. Around here, they call me Suger. I’m the Chief Blogger and doer of all the things here at Suger Coat It. Blogging since 1901; I love a casual ootd, taking photos, and writing about things that irk or inspire me. I love wine and cheese, long days at the beach and spending time with my family. I make stuff for the internet over at Chalkboard Digital. You know, living the sweet life.
It’s wonderful to see more couples that love each other the way that Daniel and I do. We sat down the other week and wrote down our plans for what we want to get out of 2014 and how we are going to reach our goals. Then strangely enough something happened today that is going to make everything we want to get out of 2014 worthwhile. I am SO excited that all of the things we day dreamed about the other week are actually going to happen. I have to keep pinching myself!
Naaaaw cute. Glad to hear that 2014 is looking so darn spiffy for you both. I say it time and time again, there is such power in taking the time to write your goals, nut them out a little and send them out there in the world. x
I understand the need for a niche from the business side of things, I think a lot of people don’t let themselves shine through enough. You do a fantastic job of that though!
Thank you! I appreciate that. And yes, I absolutely get it from a business perspective. Luckily I’ve managed to split the worlds and do both comfortably. For now. 😉
