Those of you who are regular readers may have noticed that lately, I've been posting more daily life/journal style posts than usual. Sometimes it's random ramblings of whatever thoughts are filling my head on a particular day. Sometimes (like today), it's what I've been up to via simple pictures casually snapped with my iPhone. For a long time, Bubby and Bean was strictly a design and inspiration blog, with very little personal content. Eventually, I realized that I like sharing pieces of my life with you guys here and there. This blog is certainly more than just a business for me, and being open to some sharing allows me to have a genuine relationship with my readers. My favorite blogs contain a nice mix of inspiring projects/ideas and good old fashioned real life, and that's how I like to keep things around here. As for the recently more frequent day-to-day life posts (and less frequent DIY projects, recipes, home decor and design posts), I think it has a lot to do with the fact that it's summertime. This time of year encourages me to make a conscious effort to spend less time in front of the computer or working on inside projects and more time being outdoors and, you know, living and stuff. My sister Morgan (who does the recipes and food-related posts around here) and I did some great brainstorming and planning for the blog this weekend when I went down to visit her, so for those of you who like less personal and more inspiration, don't worry - there's lots of goodness for you in the works as well.
Speaking of daily life (and going to hang with my sis this weekend), the shots above are some of my favorite Instagram photos from the last few days. In addition to our work meetings, Morgan and I had some fun adventures as well, including getting to meet up with my husband when the band played Indianapolis and finally getting to see Moonrise Kingdom...
