The enemy of good.

An old friend (shoutout, Pastor Mike!) used to tell my husband all the time "Don't let perfect become the enemy of good." I don't know why it took so many years to click, but I do this all the time; I don't write a post because it's not prepared perfectly. I don't sell anything on my etsy shop because it's not made, or shot, or lit, or priced, or described perfectly. I haven't finished the kids' scrapbooks because they're not laid out perfectly, or I have two thousand photos to pick from, and I want to pick the perfect one. I don't start cleaning the house if I can't finish the whole thing. I don't like to start projects unless I can sew them in one sitting. I bite off more than I can chew, then quit when it gets tough. It's annoying and I don't wanna do it anymore.

So, get ready for less than stellar posts, half finished thoughts, and sometimes mundane observations about the everyday (this post, for starters!). It's my blog and I can write what I want, and I'm not getting graded for it. I'm just going to do it. I'm going to try to stock my Etsy with one thing, and do that as well as I can with two kids two and under. On that note, Gracie is up and snorting, so it's milk truck time!
