CRAVING ice cream sandwiches. They're oh, so bad but oh, so good. Am I right?

GRILLING corn on the cob. I could honestly eat it for days (psst...this is my favorite way to eat it!).

LISTENING to the sweet sound of silence. It's something this preschool teacher is still getting used to!

WATCHING Homeland. I just started the series and cannot. get. enough. I also plan to start Friends because everyone who's everyone refers to it and I feel like I need to get on the bandwagon (like how I did with Gilmore Girls last year).

PLANNING to buy some new shorts. I have the hardest time finding denim shorts that aren't too short/too long, aren't too tight/loose, and are still cute (no mom jeans, please!).

DECORATING my classroom (in my head, that is!). I am so excited to decorate my space for a new school year and I've been pinning like crazy as I try to plan out ideas.

LINKING UP WITH the always lovely Jenna and Anne!

Happy July!

I've gone through a lot of seasons when it comes to blogging. I have seasons when I'm all gung-ho about blogging, pumping out post after post to fill the month. And then there are the months where I only hear crickets in Blogger. Where I'll have an empty post draft open for a week (or two) and nothing will come to mind.

I can't help but wonder what the best solution is for these seasons for blogging. Do I let them be? Because I know that if I push it, I'll regret forcing myself to blog when I don't want to. But I also know that I work best when I have motivation and encouragement.

With changes a-coming this fall, I've been doing a lot of praying and thinking about what the future of my blog is. I want to say that I'll still have my 3 posts/week schedule, but I don't know if I'll be able to do it all and I don't want to pump out half-hearted posts just for the sake of a post or consistent schedule.

But I don't want to completely quit, either. I've never been a true fan of becoming a blogger who pops in when she wants to. Not because there's anything wrong with that, but part of me oddly feels like I owe my readers and friends consistency. Either that, or I feel like I owe myself that consistency.

I worry that if I slow down completely, I won't ever jump back in.

And I definitely do not feel like stopping altogether is the solution. 

So I'm soaking up the concept of slow blogging and trying to define my blogging schedule while keeping myself active and engaged in the blogging world.

What are your thoughts on slow blogging? What do you think is the best schedule for bloggers? Or do you believe in schedules at all?

Happy Friday, friends! Can someone please tell me how we're already at the end of June? I am constantly amazed by how quickly these long summer days go by--especially when I've spent so much of this week simply relaxing (aka catching up on TV, if I'm being honest).

Edible sprinkle bowls. 

As well as some other quick and easy tips for making your floral arrangements last longer.

This photoshoot. 

And what to do when you have no ideas. A lovely sequel to her other post for when you have too many ideas! 

Have a lovely weekend, friends. A lovely one, indeed.
