Find cool and unusual gifts for any occasion and any recipient -- including yourself! -- at UncommonGoods!
I'm trying not to be someone who always talks about how busy they are. And I don't want to fall into the habit of glorifying busy. Especially since I believe in pausing to enjoy a day unplanned every now and then.
This time, though, I can't get around it because "busy" really is the only way to describe the state of life over the course of the past week. My schedule was jam-packed with meetings, time with friends, anniversary celebrations, and tea parties. I was so consumed with balancing it all that I had to dig deep to find the energy that would carry me to the weekend.
But I didn't balance it all. One major item fell by the wayside -- celebrating Taste As You Go turning eight. That's right... As of yesterday, I've been blogging for eight years, and I can't quite wrap my head around what that means.
Compared to other bloggers, I've never planned anything too elaborate to mark these milestones. I've written blog posts and shared enthusiastic updates on Facebook and Twitter. But I never did anything much beyond that. This year, however, I've decided to shake things up a bit. I'm teaming up with UncommonGoods, one of my favorite online stores for birthday gifts (see here) and personalized gifts (like these), to bring you this round-up of unique home decor and more.
And, you never know... I may just wind up buying one or two of the items in the round-up for myself as a special treat...
