I have a confession to make.

For the last week and a half — since I quit my full time job and started working part time freelance — I’ve been doing my freelance work and not a whole lot else except for some much needed light vacuuming and playing with the dog (which Leo loves!).Β  I think what happened is that working 60 or so hours a week between the full time and part time stuff, plus coming up with twice weekly content for my own blog kinda wore me out. So I’ve been taking it easy and trying to relax a bit instead of throwing myself immediately into another project.

Here’s where you guys come in…

I’m gonna get myself back into the blogging groove over the weekend…but it would be helpful to know what types of posts you enjoy reading most:

  • projects and plans from around my ranch?
  • garden and yard updates?
  • cool retro stuff mom gave me?
  • more photos and posts that show what my house looks like?
  • more about myself and what I’m up to every week?
  • new installments of the life of Leo?

Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments! I’d love to hear them!

  1. I think Leo ROCKS! And I’d like to see more of your photography work, including what retro decorating you’ve been doing. Have to admit, I’m living vicariously through you (and Pam K), as I very much miss the ’63 ranch in which I lived up until from high school.

  2. Well, I like updates on your house so more pictures is good. But everything is pretty good including Leo. Doesn’t he need a pet kitty? I like your taste in colors and I have colors on the mind lately. Anywho, it is August, I am a little behind myself. It is an August thing, no worries.

  3. I’d lie to hear more about your plans and projects around the house – before and agrees are my favorite.

    And I am a sucker for Leo. So I would definitely enjoy hearing what he thinks and is doing. πŸ˜‰

  4. Leo is the best, you are the best. Let’s hear it for doing what we love, and being courageous enough to make fresh starts. Hooray!

  5. I love the projects outside or inside and I like that Leo is always supervising everything with an eye to his own must haves πŸ˜‰ The stuff your mom gives you is also a highlight. You have such friendly voice and fun blog I like all your posts.

    I’m curious to know more about your mom’s house given all the the cool things she passes on and I loved reading about your old kitchen that little house look super cute!

    • Aww thanks Erin!

      My parents live in a pretty new house, and their decorating is very different than mine, which is why I think my Mom gives me all her cool retro stuff — since it seems to fit better in my place. However, Mom has tons of photos of houses she used to live in all over the country (they moved a lot growing up since my grandfather was in the Marine Corp.) so I could feature more photos of the stuff she is giving me in its original retro surroundings… πŸ™‚

      I’ll also have to find some photos of my first house for a fun post. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for the ideas!

  6. Hmmm… about the only thing I’m less interested in is probably yard projects – but that’s only because I don’t have a yard myself. Also I realize it probably goes with the season – it’s summer and everyone is focused on their yard, so I’ll just suck it up. πŸ˜‰ Plus I love outdoor posts that focus on holiday decorating, so I’ll bide my time. πŸ™‚

    • That is understandable Jilly, but you are right — yard and garden posts will be coming to an end when the weather turns and then I’ll be decorating for the holidays, which is always fun! πŸ™‚

  7. All of the above! But if you really want something more specific….Leo, inside of your ranch, updates on your ranch, and cool stuff from mom πŸ™‚

  8. I recently was reminded of a truism: Give people what you would like to receive yourself. I suspect if you share things that interest or intrigue you that all of us following your site will also be interested. Please keep up the good work. Oh, and give Leo an war scratch from me.

  9. Long list of options to choose from? Yes, please! to all of them. I did like the idea you suggested of seeing some of the cool retro stuff your mom gives you in its original setting too πŸ™‚

    • Aww, Leo is LOVING all the positive feedback! πŸ™‚ His tail is wagging over here!

      The master bath still hasn’t even begun! I’ve been working on and reworking my plans and still not sure exactly what to do! I’ll keep you posted though!
