Okay, I'm Back


Hi, my name is Tricia and I used to blog. Do you remember that? Barely, you say? Yeah, me either :)

Anyway, here I am...back in my little bloggy space. Besides just being busy with life over the last few months, I've been feeling like I lost my creative mojo or some such thing. I'm not really sure why. I suppose that's just how life is sometimes.


At any rate, I thought I'd take a few photos to try and get back into the swing of things. I always love flowers and food so that's what I went with. Isn't that floral ribbon pretty? My friend Tracey from French Larkspur sent it to me awhile back. Great girl, that Tracey :)



I look at those tulips and I keep hoping that wonderful weather is just over the horizon. This winter has already felt sooo long that I absolutely can't wait for some warm, sunny days. I'm sure a lot of you are with me on this, right?!

Well, I suppose, that's all for today. Total shocker, but I already took photos for another post...yay me!

Okay, see ya soon!

  9. Hi there! Good to see you. I think all bloggers go through a dry spell from time to time. Judging from these photos, I'd say you most certainly have NOT lost your mojo.

  37. Hi Tricia! I, too have been so sporadic about blogging. I love Instagram, it's just too easy!
    I was thinking your ribbon and such reminded me of Tracey and there you said it, it is from Tracey! How fun, I love to order from her. Beautiful photos, as always. :))

  39. Hey Tricia! So good to see you back in bloglandia, sweetie! I know how winter can steal one's mojo so easily. And cabin fever doesn't help, either. lol Well, I'm right beside ya counting the days til spring. If I never saw another snowflake in my life, I'd be perfectly happy. lol

  47. I'm glad you're back! I saw your feature at Brenda's and I realized I hadn't been to your blog for awhile and wouldn't you know it, I fell off your Follower list as I have been doing with a lot of blogs. Grrrrr.

    Beautiful photos, I like that ribbon, too. All of these colors are so soft and soothing.

    Yes, c'mon spring!

    XO,

  48. Welcome back! I love your photography and this is such a pretty (and yummy) vignette! I've been away for a long while too. I keep thinking about getting back into it but then I don't sit down and begin again. Sigh

  49. Hi Tricia, nice to hear from you again. Sometimes we all need a break. This January my book Sweet White Of Mine was published and I mentioned your blog among others to share and inspire my readers. I always loved your pictures. So I am happy you are back. Spring will be there soon, don't worry ;-) Carolina

  50. I am more than happy to see your beautiful delicate photography again! I totally understand what you mean by losing your creative mojo as I often myself feel that way ... and particularly at this very moment. What often encourages me to keep going are Ira Glass's wise words on creativity and "...It is normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work... It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.” Look forward to see more of you and always grateful for your honest feedback on my work!

  51. Yes, I missed you, but it's great to see such pretty photos from you again!

    ReplyDelete
  52. So glad you are back! Life sometimes gets in the way. Missed you!

  53. As you know, I've reeled
    back on my blogging, as
    well, but I think it's necessary
    to be engaged in the world
    around us to bring anything
    that's really valuable to our
    bloggy spaces!

    As always, I want to walk
    right into your photos, sit
    down, drink the hot chocolate,
    nibble the cookie and smell
    the flowers!

    Yes--looooong winter. But sounds
    like spring is around the corner,
    next week (ha ha)!

  58. Hi Tricia, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. I have been having trouble with GFC and if I am already following you, and you following me, please forgive me. If not, please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
