Sometimes I get so hooked on a band that I don't listen to anything but their music, until I know all the words and hand claps and breakdowns. Then I listen some more and you can bet I sing along loudly and full of emotion, taking in every feeling the singer and instruments convey. The Front Bottoms is one of those bands. I can't get enough. Even after months and months of listening to almost nothing else, I'm not tired of their songs. Music gets me through things and I feel like their music is perfect for that.

For Mother's Day, we took a trip to Baltimore to visit the American Visionary Art Museum. This was our first time and I think everyone had so much fun taking it all in. There is so much there to look at and even the spaces outside the building are covered in art. If you're local or ever passing through the area, this needs to be a definite stop! My favorite was an exhibit all about food, entitled Yummm! There's an entire room of art that's made from bread, a hall full of lunch boxes and food-related Post Secrets, and the neatest moving mandala constructed from items such as paper plates. You can see that colorful piece in the photos below, along with an example of one of the pieces from the room full of bread.

Just as I was trying to get back into the habit of blogging, life happened and either I got sick or a kid got sick, possibly both. Then there was a vacation and some holidays and probably a lot of downtime where I could have been productive, but I chose to nap or read a comic book. Anyway, the blog fell by the wayside yet again. I was talking with my friend, Heidi, about how difficult it is for both of us get back into the habit of posting regularly. We both have things to post and I always feel like there's something to ramble about or share. So here I am making another attempt. Maybe this one will stick! If anyone has any tips to share in regards to being a more consistent blogger, feel free to shoot them my way!

It's been a really odd winter, with temperatures in the 70s one day and below freezing the next, and we haven't really had any decent snow. There have been some flurries and a few dustings, until this week when my two little snow bunnies' winter wishes finally came true. They had such a blast playing in the snow and stayed outside until their cheeks were bright pink and their noses were as cold as icicles. I'm glad they got their one good snow, but now I'm ready for spring!

It's been a long time since I've taken the time to do a blog post. I've thought about it a lot and I've taken photos with the intention to use them in a blog post, but the longer I went without posting, the more difficult it got to actually sit down and do any updates. I find myself opening my laptop less and less these days and I spend less time on all forms of social media. I'm happy and I think that I worry less about documenting that and more about just enjoying life. A friend and I had a good chat about this little blog and how it was started as a bit of therapy, an outlet when my depression was pretty bad. He asked if maybe it had served its purpose. I suppose it has served that purpose, but I feel like there's more to it. I like writing, I like sharing things I love and bits of my life, and, practically speaking, it's a nice way to promote my handmade business. Who knows if anyone is still around to read and enjoy those things, but I'm going to do my best to whip this blog back into shape!

It felt fitting to post these photos from our trip to Lewes a few weeks back, since we aren't even a week into October and all of my feeds are full of spooky fun. Who am I kidding, though? I'm always up for posting lovely old graveyards and there isn't really anything particularly spooky about this one at all. I'm having such a hard time getting back into the habit of regularly posting, but maybe October will be my month!
