Almost all lifestyle blogs begin with a girl and a touch of boredom. I know that when I started Haute Whimsy back in 2008, I was going through a period of transition where I was leaving my job and didn't quite know what I wanted to do with myself. I was all sorts of excited and bored and restless. Writing had always made me happy and blogs felt like the perfect mix of personal journal and magazine - a perfect combo for someone who is trying to find themselves.
From 2008 through 2014 I filled this space with anecdotes, fashion whims, inspirational images, artists that I admired and periods of absence. 2014 was my sparsest blogging year to date and it left me feeling a little empty. Granted, much of my absence was due to starting a small business and that in itself has been extremely fulfilling, but I do miss my time here on Haute Whimsy.
So, while it's still January, I'm going to resolve to make this space a priority in 2015. I think it will make me happy and keep me sane, and hopefully allow me to make those lovely connections which I've come to value over the years.
