I'm a visual person by nature, as this morning's post about crafting probably indicates, and I especially love "day in the life" style blog posts and articles. It's fun to get a visual glimpse of a blogger or writer or editor in their daily life. I find this especially true when it's an entrepreneur. As someone who works outside of the home forty hours per week, I like getting a glimpse of what it's like to own and run your own business.
Which is why this morning's post on A Practical Wedding, documenting Meg's Day in the Life really spoke to me. Especially this:
...what I really wanted to do was kick-start a mini-movement within the APW community to value the day-to-day. I want us to remind ourselves that no matter how impossible wedding planning seems, or how unsure we are about our jobs, our homes, or our desire to have kids/not have kids, there’s always breakfast, lunch, dinner, errands, chores, and hanging out. That’s what anchors us. And in the end, that’s what makes a life.
Because lately I've been in a bit of a "busy trap" and really just needed to read that. I really recommend you go check out this post, because it is really good.
