Monday, November 29

I am closing in on my three year anniversary with Auburn + Ivory. It is so weird to go back through all the posts and see how much has changed. Not necessarily my tastes (I still love Beach House + Miranda July) but my life would be totally different if I hadn't got up the nerve to write that first post. I shudder to think what I would be doing right now. I probably never would have met really rad people that I consider good friends and I definitely wouldn't be on the same adventure.

And it is a crazy, busy adventure right now. I've neglected this little space recently and I've been struggling with whether or not I want to keep updating it or to just remember it fondly and get on with the next chapter. I haven't been putting as much effort into writing unique posts and that just doesn't cut it. I don't want to just regurgitate things I like in my google reader.

I'm not ready to say goodbye yet but there may be some changes a-coming. I may get a little more personal here which is cussing scary. Up until this point I've been careful not to get too intimate and instead have chosen to just share pretty things and the occasional plea for advice. In the past, some of you have requested more talk about my life and I'm going to try and deliver that from here on out.

Stay tuned...


  1. Oh, don't go, I just found you!

    I just started my blog this summer and have also wondered about putting too much personal stuff on it but can't seem to help it if my
    current mood slips in.

    There are a lot of "pretty" pictures and blogs out there and I admit to getting lost in them but the ones that have a more personal touch are much more compelling.

    Please keep it going!

  2. I totally hear you about privacy on the internets, because there are some crazy-ass people out there. I'm constantly trying to keep a certain intimacy without bearing my soul, and although it's sometimes terrifying it's been immensely rewarding.

    So happy three years of marvelous writing, and here's to what's to come!

  3. I'm in the same spot. Not ready to give up, but having a hard time with what direction to go. I'm staying tuned...

  4. Congratulations on your anniversary! I love your blog and am looking forward to seeing more.

  5. Wow that is so great that you have been on here for three years! Happy anniversary. Just like Ginny said, I also just found you! I hope you will stick around because I love what I have seen so far. Maybe if you have a few tips you want to pass on to a new blogger you could email me :)

    xoxo Summer

  6. hey there. just stumbled in.

    i've found with blogging you have to be authentic to your own voice and needs. you can't please everyone, and ought not to try.
    if you want to get more intimate, then go for it!
