Madness & Magic

sparkler

In October, I stopped blogging. There were things I wanted to say, but I didn’t feel I could tell those stories here and that worried me. I knew I needed some time away.

By November, I decided I was done with this space. I was hard at work on a new site, which I had planned to launch it in December. But something inside said “wait” and so I did.

Then, in the last days of 2012, something unexpected happened: I discovered I wasn’t done here. Not yet. Maybe not at all. There are still so many beautiful things I want to share and I know this is the right space for them. You won’t see me five days a week, but when something makes me gasp, you’ll know about it.

But, I also have a new place I’m calling home, one that is so authentically me it’s scary at times. I’ve put my name on it, in really big letters. I would be honored if you wandered over and explored (especially the blog). If you want more, sign up for the newsletter or RSS feed. It’s going to be something extraordinary. My whole heart is in it.

I also have a secret to share with you: this year, I’m planning to do something wild, something so big it terrifies me. But I’m not telling anyone quite what it is yet…

Here’s to 2013 and all the madness and magic it will bring!
