A Change (and an Anniversary)

Seashells Organized Neatly

Here we are. A new look, a new name.

This blog was created on a whim one afternoon. And three years later (to the day!) I'm a different person, in a different place. It's time for a little refresh, I decided.

Still the same url. Still the same writing about love and life, and writing about writing, and reading too. And still the same me (...or the same as I ever am, for a girl who changes daily).

 I think the universe delivers things to us, much like the ocean. Each day brings lessons and lifelines. But, a person who is bent on seeing nothing always get's their way. It's a choice to open our eyes; to seek out what's infront of us and find what has washed ashore. Blogging inspired that search for me. 

This is a place for what I find.

  1. I become strangely excited by organizing things. Recently I posted (briefly) about the beauty of Ziploc bags as an organizational tool. Looking forward to tomorrow's post.

  2. LOVE the new name, Sam! It's beautiful, and so fitting. Happy Blogging-versary! :)

  3. Its my first time in here, and I just wanted to say I like it so much!

  4. Lillian : The idea actually first started in the class at Summer School PDX! I really wanted a stronger connection between me, my url, and the blog title. Thanks, Lillian.

    KAAM : i'm happy to have you!

  5. I love this. Your writing is always so beautiful.

  6. I love the new look of your blog and the inspiration to change. I also would like to start fresh with mine...something that reflects me more and the way I'd like to write.
    Your posts are always an inspiration and I appreciate that you stop by and visit. :)

  11. chrissy : "change is real and your blog is real" ... so often this feels like an imaginary space. what an important thing to remember!

    Lauren : I think I recently said the same thing about your baby's name!
