I ♥ Blogging

This is my 100th post. Crazy! This may sound nerdy, but blogging has been such an enjoyable and creative outlet for me over the past year. I've truly learned a lot about myself and how I operate. I've always been a project-driven person. My day feels productive if I've gotten lots of things checked off the ticky list. Blogging is a way to add some fun to that ticky list, get creative and share those projects. I don't really watch much TV because I can't sit still long enough. When I'm at home, I'm always doing, cooking, re-decorating an area, re-organizing a closet, or starting something way too involved for the amount of time I can dedicate to the project :) Blogging has given me a way to wind down and have some "me" time. It's allowed me to explore photography, new recipes, talk about my dogs, meet new blogging friends, etc. Plus, I've always enjoyed writing, hence my degree in journalism. After college, I never really had the opportunity to write and create. Now I've got that back!

It has also been great to get connected with other bloggers and learn their techniques/interests. There are some great writers and doers in the blogging world. Everyone's creativity and hobbies are so inspiring!

I'm trying to expand that creative vein and add another fun project to my necessary to-do list with The Proper Pecan. Check out my Valentine's Day Sassy Sweet Pecans with the red/pink felt roses!

I've got a batch in the oven right now...I'm going to try dipping them in chocolate for a more traditional Valentine's Day gift. We'll see how they turn out!
