I have to admit, I feel like this polar bear at the Lincoln Park zoo—safe and well cared for, but a bit out of place and a bit trapped (in my case, trapped in my own head). So after much thought, I have decided to take a vacation from blogging to bust out of my creative cage! I have been sharing inspirations for 6 years, since June of 2007. I wanted Dd to be a place to capture what I found interesting, to hone in on my taste, to design desk sets and explore interior design, and to one day launch an online shop. I think it has served it's purpose, but life has taken it's twists and turns and I find myself at a fork in the road, one I need to focus on. My varied interests and open ended opportunities have caused me to take a moment to rethink what it is that I am really passionate about and acknowledge my strengths and weaknesses. I also want to have more time to explore Chicago and enjoy all it has to offer—the summer is short, and the winters are loooong.
I plan to see you again in the fall, my favorite season. I hope that this time away from the computer will spark fresh creative ideas as well as deepen my passion for art, design and interiors. Perhaps I will return with a new way of sharing all of that with you!
Until then, you can follow my summer explorations here:
Enjoy today and your summer.
