Or maybe this post could be better titled, "Yes, I Am Still Alive"
My break from blogging has been far far longer than I ever anticipated. I paused in December, caused by holiday festivities filling my calendar and then my calendar said to me, "Imma keep ya busy yo."
And so goes life, right?
I've been doing things like:
1. Afternoon Tea with my mom (which, if you didn't know,
you always must sport a fancy hat during).
2. Playing underground black light putt-putt golf...
Yes, my shoes are blinders apparently.
3. And building Forts in my living room...
I feel like no explanation is needed here.
4. I've also been constructing Lincoln Log cabins.
5. Attending DIY tables at the local craft store.
(Yep made a hot pick bracelet)
6. Learning (and almost mastering) chopsticks
(My fingers get so incredibly tired...how does everyone do this?)
7. And creating Baby Shower cakes and Decor.
So as you can tell, the calendar had important things for me to be doing all these months of blogging wasteland. And I could do nothing but comply with these demands. (All joking aside though, it's been a whirlwind these past 5 months and I've missed blogging.)
As I'm trying to figure out how to get back in the routine of Le Blog, I'm rethinking it all together. Last year I posted outfits and zoomed in on the stellar fact that thriftin' it up is pretty much amazing and doesn't mean you have to be out of date. During the year it became one of the only things anyone ever talked to me about. Not that they would only discuss outfits, DIY, & thrift - but people would only discuss those things in reference to the blog and what they saw on here.
Let's get one thing straight, I love talking about this stuff! But, it's not the sole thing I'd like to talk about. Soooo, I'm reinventing Patterned Love to include other categories as well. (In hindsight - good thing I didn't title my blog something like Thrift Only or Outfit Mania).
I've been really enjoying cooking, as of late, and baking. I've embarked on sewing projects outside the clothing realm, and I've been venturing out to find new eats. All of which I wouldn't mind sharing with whatever crowd may be hovering my tiny square inch of the inter-webs. So beginning soon, I'll be back and I'll be starting some new adventures.
(well... if you've stuck around during the unannounced hiatus)
See you soon.
