G for V

Time to return to my Gratitude List.

- I'm thankful for those who responded to the poll. It looks like focusing on one blogging topic is overrated ... by me. I will find a way to somehow become more thematic. Or interesting. I don't know. I promise something!

- I'm grateful for having a place to stay in Santa Barbara for little getaways. We just got back on Tuesday evening, and the change of scenery was much-needed.

- I'm thankful for being blessed with a fairly easygoing toddler. Q slept for at least half of each car trip and adapted really well in what was surely an unfamiliar place to him. Photos of Q pointing at everything on the beach coming soon.

- I'm grateful that my bff brought a healthy, beautiful baby girl (Valencia Moira -- isn't that just gorgeous?) into the world on April 24th at 1:46am after a grueling 28-hour labor and delivery. She deserves an award and is my pick for Mama of the Year.

- I'm thankful for getting to experience motherhood with my best friend!

- I'm grateful that Q has a new lifelong friend in little Valencia. Or future wife. (These kids are going to hate us.)

Okay, I really should dedicate another post to the wonders of sharing motherhood with a best friend. It's a challenge to think about anything else lately. Have I mentioned Valencia yet? I'm smitten apparently.

I've come to a decision. I'd like to be a better blogger. What does better blogging mean? To me it means writing more often and on a more focused topic. I realize that I'm all over the place topic-wise, from mommy musings to forays into fashion. I need to hone in on an overarching theme. I'm thinking that I could still go off-topic but always relate back to the original topic in some way.

So, dear readers, I know you are few, but I'm relying on your feedback here. What would you like to see Flyrish Foibles become?

Inspiration Information

One aspect of my life BQ (before Quincy) that I really miss is finding the time to make Michies mixes. Honestly, I haven't been very inspired by any new music in a while. But, I admit that it takes time to research music other than what's played on Top 40 radio, and we've already established that I'm lacking in personal time.

Still, I don't want to blame it on the Q that I have been relegated to humming tunes from his musical toys. I put partial blame on my husband who typically finds us the majority of our latest jams, but his new job has kept him quite occupied. So, it comes down to me. Make the time already. I can and I will get back to my music.

Especially now that I've discovered some recent releases that give me hope for the future of Michies mixes.
