In order to maintain a bit of privacy I have been very careful about not over sharing. After all, everyone has their own problems so why would you want to hear about someone else’s? However, the more I write the more I realize that it is important to share a little bit of life with you (starting with this post). And if I am willing to publicly post images of our home, then it’s probably okay to get a little personal with you every now and then. After all…life happens.
People read blogs for many different reasons, myself included. For example, they can serve as a great source of inspiration or as an escape, a way to stay informed or as a resource to learn something new. Why do you read blogs and what makes you coming back here for more?
I’ve been reading blogs since 2007 and have realized that I am attracted to or continue to follow those that interject their own personality and provide a little bit of information about themselves and their lives. It’s interesting to learn about the people behind the keystrokes.
Where am I going with all this?
My surgeon recently told me “You have a gallstone the size of a golf ball….we really should take care of that.” How do you respond to that? I have been in a bit of denial over the whole thing until I feel the sudden tinge of pain come on. It serves as a reminder that I better take care of myself because it’s only bound to get worse if I don’t. Needless to say, today is the big day. It is the day that Reviving Charm goes to the hospital for surgery.
Naturally, I have to tie today’s post into something design related so I am featuring a few lovely nightstands accessorized with beautiful fresh flowers. No matter how big or small your nightstand is there is always room for flowers. Whether it be a single stem in a bud vase or a full floral arrangement there is nothing more wonderful than having fresh flowers at your bedside. And if any of my friends or family are reading this I want them to know that I’ve already cleared off my own nightstand to make room for a few new fresh bouquets of my own…hint, hint. And for those who have already sent flowers…Thank you!
I will be back soon but in the meantime I have a few posts lined up to keep you entertained while I recuperate. –xoxo, v.
