Day 1 of Writing a Blog Post Everyday Until the End of the Year

Tonight, Austin and I watched a movie called Julie & Julia. It was about an aspiring woman that on a whim started a blog about cooking a famous cook book author’s recipes for an entire year. Her goal was to finish the book in a year’s time, all 500 some recipes. I felt super inspired by this movie, for once I’m touched by a story like this! It is motivation to get started again.

So, for the rest of the year, I am going to write a blog post every day. I don’t really have a common theme, other than I’m pretty much a house wife by choice and have a million things I like to do and create. Looking around me now, I have my camera next to me, a vintage hankie, a bag with my latest crochet project inside of it, a tripod, a baking dish that contained our oven roasted root veggies we had for dinner, among the many other things astrew in the living room right now. We’re not exactly the tidiest people out there, but we try!

Everyday I will write. About what ever it is I, or should I say, we did during the day. I’m guessing some days will be anticlimactic, others can be dramatic and exciting. If you want to talk about astrology, I’m an Aries sun, Cancer moon, and Leo rising, so my day to day emotions are like all over the place. I can’t help it, it is just who I am.

Why am I doing this? I’ve been through a lot of stuff in the last few years. So much so that I feel it has taken a toll on my creative side, and especially my emotional/mental health side. Sometimes I feel like I need to be happy to write, but the truth is, I’m not always happy. It’s a challenge some days to do anything, so if this is the most I can do in a day, I’ll be so proud of myself. Besides from feeling empty, we’re currently house hopping between our parents until we buy a house to start our homestead in. It’s interesting, living out of bags and driving my blue truck around with the back seat filled to the windows with stuff, but we’re managing.

We’re also in an interesting time in history, going through a pandemic which I’m sure is super hard on everybody. Maybe I can connect with others and relate to them in some way, or at least provide a bit of entertainment. My life feels pretty ordinary, yet when I think about it, it isn’t. We’ll see where this blog goes, but until then, here I am.

Today is April 6, which means I have 268 more days to go. Oh boy. Let’s do this.

I don’t know what will happen next, though, I know I will be there.

Much love,

Ashley
