Here.


It had to be done. A stepping away for clarity's sake.  

In October, I thought this blog was done and something new would take it's place eventually.  I wasn't sure if it would be a brand new site but last week, when the renewal notice came for this site's domain, I couldn't let it go.  It was and is a part of my heart and soul. I walked this snowy path with my husband yesterday, yapping about blog possibilities for maybe the millionth time since I walked away in October, but in the end I suppose I always knew exactly what I was going to do. 

I weeded through what I want and don't want as far as what I can give, what I'll say yes to, and who I'll answer to with the whole social media bucket.  I won't be reopening my shop or public Instagram, I'll just be here. Simply here, writing occasionally and photographing life when I want to.   

Merry Christmas dear friends.  I'll see you in the New Year. 

Sasha

  4. I cannot tell you how much I have missed your posts. I have been searching Instagram to find a feed that was as inspiring as yours in holiday decorating, home decor, hospitality and entertaining ideas. Turns out you are one of a kind and so far, irreplacable! I am sure I speak for many when I say you have been missed. I appreciate that you will be returning to share a bit of inspiration and friendship back on your blog!

  19. Oh, my goodness! You'll think I'm a crazy, stalking sap, but when you said you were closing up your blog, I felt like I had lost a friend, even though you don't even KNOW me! Your posts so often echo what I'm thinking, that they become small little devotionals to me. And your house! My word! I know there are forty million bigger and grander homes with home tours on blogs, but I always come back to your simple, clean, adorable house and think, "That one! Lemonade Makin' Mama's house is my favorite!" I've even bought a couple of prints from your shop in the past, which hang on our kitchen wall. I'm looking forward to still being able to pop in here once in a while and see what inspirational words you've written!

  24. This makes me so happy! I love the way you open your heart and I feel like I could sit down for coffee with you any time and we would talk for hours or not talk at all and either would be perfect. So happy to see you here again. I have struggled a lot with whether to keep up http://jenningsbaby.blogspot.com/ and I still don't know what to do with it. Maybe I will start writing again. :)
