The last couple of months I have been doing a lot of work reassessing the Seamless brands while we work on their revised designs, both online and off. And in the process I’ve been doing some soul searching about what it is I actually want to do with my time. Over and over again I fall into the trap of saying, “Yes!” to too many things, which has simply resulted in having too little time to focus on the things that make me happy.
So, possibly one of the biggest realizations I made throughout this process was: I do not want to be a wedding blogger.
While I still love weddings, there are just so many other people out there (with blogs I still read and will continue to read) that do a much better job than I. I’ve discovered that it’s really not where my passion lies; and there are many aspects of these events that I’m just not as interested in since getting married. I simply can’t keep up with a project like this on a daily basis when my heart’s not in it.
However, the vast majority of my posts here, and the ones I am most personally connected to (other than those about my own wedding), have some sort of design component to them. I am still completely enamored with invitations, stationery, and any and all visual inspiration. So all of that content will come over with me to design work life. As of now, there won’t be any sort of schedule — it will simply blend right in to the daily posts I continue to publish — but that could change in the future.
I will also still continue to design paper goods for weddings and events through Seamless Paperie—which is getting a huge makeover and expansion in the next few months.
I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to do with this space yet, whether it will become a personal — and less often updated — blog, or if it will simply exist as an archive all of our wedding plans. But for the time being, it will no longer be updated regularly.
If you’re new to the site, feel free to take a look through the archives. There’s lots of bits of inspiration to be found. And if not, I hope you’ll come over to dwl with me and follow along.
Thanks so much for your readership over the last year or two. This online space has been a great outlet for me to navigate through the world of wedding planning, and I’ve truly appreciated all the connections I’ve made.
