Where I've Been and Where I Am


Depression is a bitch, let me tell ya. It zaps my energy, motivation and desire to do anything, even the things I love to do, like taking pictures of beautiful things and writing about them. As the days get longer and it's warm I feel a little better and I'm beginning to get the urge to be creative, again and it feels good to be stepping slowly back into the light, back to being myself when I'm not swimming in deep, dark places. 

I wish that I could give a solid timeline and set a schedule but I'm not quite there, yet. I have changed the appearance of this blog, a bit. I had to dump my old, added on template because it was a mess and nothing I did, within my limited capacity was helping make it any better. I'm using a Blogger template, for the time being until I decide what my new aesthetic will be, as I rebrand to expand the scope of this blog. Don't worry, if you come here for beauty content that will still be the main focus, now and always but I'd like to include more lifestyle content, some home stuff, maybe style. Pretty much whatever is bouncing around in my noggin. I no longer wish to be restrained by just one subject and since I don't get high traffic and my current numbers are pretty much subterranean, this should be a good time to begin the process. For the time being, this should do and hopefully, a "new look" and feel will spur me to start writing content, again. 

Anyway, if anyone is actually seeing this, thank you for stopping in, reading and I hope that you'll consider returning. 

Okay, Erika... Do your tags and hit the Publish button. You can do this. 


  1. Yay, happy to hear that you are feeling better, Erika! I look forward to seeing your new blog theme. Everything that you create is gorgeous, so I am sure your next venture will be a dazzler!

  2. Depression is in fact a stone bitch, and I'm glad it's let up enough for you to post. Good to see you and I love the peonies.
