Tap, tap, tap! This thing still on?
Bloggity, bloggity, blog. Hi, my name is Katie and I haven't blogged in three months. Three months! Time to wipe the dust off of Polka Dot Soup, me thinks.
Where to begin? I had a busy, busy summer - I started a new job once school finished for the year. I worked at a fun little local deli with a fantastic group of women and laughed my sides sore some days. Long work hours and the desire to spend any free time with my husband, family and friends left little time for the internet world. Before summer began, I made the decision to push the online/computer world to the side for several months, and that included graphic design work, blogging, blog reading and social media. I feel so refreshed, and, if I'm going to be honest, I loved every minute. We get so tied to the electronic world. I know I'll be spending 40+ hours in front of my screen every week once school (school!) begins, and this summer confirmed something that I've been struggling with putting into words: pursuing activities other than the online world makes me a happier person. I'd much rather be in my kitchen trying out a new recipe than pinning yet another one to my food board, ya hear me?
Over the next few days, I hope to share photos of some of my summer adventures. I took my Nikon on some escapades, but for the most part, my favourite memories were captured with my cell phone. My iPhone sure takes better photos than the poor little flip phone I had until last fall :)
What about you? How was your summer? Do share!
