Expectations of Blog Content and Online Shopping-Take Two

This post is an update to one written last fall.  Still perfectly timely and food for thought for all of us.  Plus…you don’t want to miss the exciting update on our lamp saga!

Life Does Not Have To Be Perfect To Be Wonderful



Last week LBD suffered another blog site problem on Sunday that took some extensive work with our IT guys to correct.  I am using this as one big excuse as to why posts have been sparse lately.  But to be honest, I’ve felt the funk of not being inspired to write new blog content for weeks.  Perhaps we need to gear expectations of blog content in the same way we do for online shopping. Update:  The world is in a funk right now and it takes all of us to keep each other motivated and inspired.  We appreciate all the kind thoughts that head our way each day and the understanding that blog posts are not at the tippy top of the priority list each day.

Ok Monday…Let’s Do This!




Designers are just like everyone else.  We sneak in some weekend internet time to save photos of all kinds of inspiration for our homes.  We are trained, and have years of experience, that help us see things others might miss.  In our minds, there is always a “what if” churning.  Some concepts take time and money.  All good.  Plan the work and work the plan.  But what can we do now?  Personally,  I’ve found that small accomplishments in our home keep me motivated.  Something that can be done quickly, like “right now”!  Basically for sweat labor  free and make me feel like I have made a positive difference in our life.   Tall order…easy fix!
