So who really reads this?

Over the past couple months I have been seriously slacking on my personal posts!
I really don’t know what happened, but one day it kind of hit me.
People can read my blog!!!?!
People besides my MOM!
And then I got terribly nervous.

A lil background on me. I consider myself a shy person.
I tend to keep to myself and really I am a hard egg to crack.
I just dont do "insta friends".
I either click with you or I don’t.
I prefer genuine meaningful relationships,
and I try and put a lot of thought & effort into those friendships. =)
It’s just how I work.

So then this lil world known as the Internet kind of threw me for a loop!
You know -Twitter, Face book, Blogs, everything is putting yourself out there.
So when I had my lil realization that people could judge know me via my blog,
I kind of went into hibernation.
It's crazy how a blog can connect you to people, and how much you can learn about a person through their blog, astounding really. But it became a fear of mine.
So I apologize, I let my insecurities get the best of me! And I hate that!
I finally realize that I am not going to make everyone happy,
and people will hate me who don’t even know me
(and frankly I have haters that I know exactly who they are)
Such is life.

My point being Interweb Peeps, I am going to start being more open and honest.
Take it or leave it. =)
Starting with my new posts called "Life as a..."

It will include a bevy of projects, ideas, inspiration and such =)
I am sooo excited to start sharing all these things with my lovely blog readers!
I know I sound like a broken record, but thank you for reading my blog, who ever you are,
you are lovely!
A fun sneak peek from a recent Engagement shoot =) Cannot wait to blog this one!

Oh Ashley, I can relate to the whole being shy thing. I am terribly shy, and I do not know how I will ever overcome this to build my business. I am determined to find a way though. If it makes you feel any better, I LOVE your blog. You seem very sweet and sincere. A girl with a big heart for her brother and the people she loves. Who could hate on that?

I feel the same. I have issues with blogging, period, due to lack of time. I don't know how to put my personal stuff out there, but hopefully I'll find my voice someday. I think you're doing a fantastic job!
