Cherry Blossoms in Bloom

I have been writing and posting to this blog, albeit sporadically, for a little over 4 years. I've never been good at keeping a diary no matter how many pretty journals I may buy, so this has been my medium for releasing creative energy and unscrambling the thoughts rattling around in my head. I can't say I've always written exactly the words I've wanted to express (a bit of censorship for fear of it coming back to haunt me), but I can promise, dear readers, that you see my authentic self in each of these pictures (thank you, Philip!). The world of lifestyle blogging is a strange place, with varied personalities ranging from the genuine to the artificial. I have found a community that is driven and absolutely chic, but a bit lost as to its purpose. I love personal style and fabulous women showing how they live their crazy, hectic and fashionable lives, yet it seems to have become more about buying stuff and constantly than it has about living an authentic self. In the end, all I can do is speak for myself - I am not the most dutiful blogger, but I do try to share with you the things that bring me joy. We are all, if anything, on that constant journey for happiness.
