How to Add “Old House” Character and Charm to Your Newer Home series by Beneath My Heart
I saw this series was going on via Pinterest and was surprised and happy to get a pingback from Traci.
You’re reading that correctly. 1,419 likes, 26 comments and 10,851 repins. B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Along with all the other times it has been pinned. If you want to see what I’m talking about here is how you can check pins from The Lovely Lifestyle.
1. You go to something that you know is pinned from it.
2. Go to the bottom, left-hand corner where it says “Also from thelovelylifestyle.wordpress.com” – see the arrow in the photo above.
3. Browse all the pins that The Lovely Lifestyle had received. You can see who originally pinned it and how many likes and repins it has recieved.
Being featured, my recent stream of subscribers, getting emails from readers all makes me feel a mixture of pride and “What the WHAT?!” My lil’ corner of the internet takes some dedication and there are definitely times when I think, “I’d rather watch something trashy and mind-numbing like Dance Moms or MTV: The Challenge – Battle of the Exes” (Don’t judge me. Both are symptoms of being on the road.) but I try to put something out here for you – whoever you are. Of course, not all posts are for you. Don’t get stingy. My posts are often for myself, to chronicle events or log inspiration and products. As you likely noticed from my weigh in posts, I’m beginning to use The Lovely Lifestyle as a journal. Of course, as I grow in the amount of personal information I share, I’ll still have my limits. The Mister will still be The Mister and I’ll keep “stranger danger” rules in mind. Yet, I’m becoming more comfortable with y’all hanging around and with myself. Still, I often cringe when I read my subscription feed and catch misspelled or misused words – like the “there” instead of “their” in my Weight Watchers live blog. But, you seem to forgive me and I need to learn from you and forgive myself. I’ve had some personal matters, struggles and scares the past 18+ months and this blog, this place, turned into a creative outlet for me. It has allowed me to refocus. It’s made me think about other stuff. It’s been a good touchpoint. I’ve appreciated having you around. You haven’t known, but you helped me.
Thank you for being a friend.
You’re heart is true.
You’re a pal and a confidant.
If you didn’t press play and jam out, you may need to stop reading this blog.
There is no excuse for that type of “I’m too cool” behavior.
