The New Burlap and Honey

About 3 months ago, I sat staring at my neglected blog thinking, "I don't feel connected to this anymore."

When I started my blog, I was going through a very transitional time. I was working a temp job (while waiting for ParaNorman to start). Dan and I were living 6,000 miles apart as we waited for the immigration peeps to grant him a greencard and finances were tight as we saved to pay the immigration fees and finance our wedding. The title "Wingin' It..." felt appropriate because that was what I was doing every second.

Fast forward to now and my life is much more settled. Dan has his greencard, we own our own home, we both have stable jobs at a film studio and have actually managed to save a bit of cash. Life feels secure and more in control. So, after a lot of thought, it became apparent that "Wingin' It" had to go.

Burlap and Honey. What in tarnation does that mean? In my mind, it stands for the hobbies that I have really come to love over the last couple of years. 'Burlap' represents my love of home decor, antique/vintage finds and using a little innovation and elbow grease to turn something plain and rustic into something beautiful. 'Honey' represents my adoration of cooking, baking and finding beauty in unexpected places. It is a name that feels right to me and something I am really excited about.

On Burlap and Honey, I plan on incorporating much more of the following:

I am going into this blog with much more of a plan than I did my last one, and I cannot wait to start sharing some of my ideas. Thanks again for sticking with me! 

'Till next time...
