the results



i come to you, two weeks later, with the results of my little social experiment.

turns out that reducing my internet time has been {hardcore} inspired for me.
it's been super helpful for my sanity to be away from all the buzz on facebook lately.

i basically learned what i already knew: too much information, too many ideas & opinions...is overwhelming & discouraging to me.

therefore,
i am
definitely going to continue with my facebook & google-reader hiatus.
abstaining from it has increased my peace & clarity....just as i expected.

but today, as i was watching chloe delight over the blooming of our 3rd zinnia....
i found myself wanting to bottle up that sweet, happy moment forever.

and the best [and most efficient way] i know of to bottle up moments, is blogging.

so, i think i'll continue with my angieinpink-ness.
in a simpler format.

because it's fun & i miss it.
and because i want to record our little life story & share my angie-heart with my tiny corner of the world.

i'm super grateful for the encouragement i've received from friends to keep blogging in a way that feels balanced & uplifting to me.

here's to simple, happy posts about a simple, happy life.

Yup. Amen to the Facebook too-much-ness. My favorite quote from Mary Poppins has to be: "Enough is as good as a feast."

Blogging is enough for me, Thank you.

And for Pete's sake, you have enough great ideas all by yourself. Trust yourself. :) *lessons I've recently learned too! -- I think that idea is flying around the universe lately.
