It really should be called "Thoughts Designed"

I am realizing that this little "Design Blog" that i started last year, has wavered back and forth pretty consistently between Design Blog, and Lifestyle blog. I use to worry about this, with thoughts of "oh man , I need to stay with all things design related, fit in my "niche" because this is, well, a design blog, and I totally LOVE design, but my life is totally mixed in too"  Anyway, what I have come to realize is; THAT is my niche.."A life Designed"  MY life IS about Design, and about Babies, and Mommy, and Wife, and pretty things, and things that cost a lot but getting it for less, and being spiritually balanced and loving life, and hating things about life, and being smitten with being a mom and sulking because I have no time, and sharing ideas about how to save time, and being creative, and feeling stuck, and getting unstuck, and missing my family, and loving that i have made a "family" here in NY, and looking towards the future and being excited ,scared nervous, and more excited about that. I am realizing, through this little blog, that it is a map of my life...I am a stay at home mom that works 3 days a week, I am a home owner that rents in NY, and I am a design blogger that writes about life :) its kind of beautiful I think.

My little serious faced little Nugget. He smiles and coos until you take his picture...then stone face! But every day he learns or finds something new in the world and I get to be a part of that. I am finding that it's hard to say "I love you" enough. It keeps everything else in perspective.
