Privacy:

I just deleted my Pinterest account. And I'm really happy about it. I tried to like it but there was just something about it that really bothered me. I hate sharing things with people. Not in a selfish way, I just find it all too personal. I like what I like. And no one else really needs to see what I like or why. No one should care. I think that's what bugs me about social media. I think it's the same reason why I hate Facebook and will never use Twitter. And why I never write about anything personal on here. Because my private life is just that: private. Everyone has gotten caught up in this whole sharing thing and I think it's gone a little too far. No one should care about what I ate for breakfast, how I'm thinking of redecorating, or what I wish my closet looked like, except for me.

So, I'm reducing my presence online and couldn't be happier about it. Right now I'm all about purging my life of anything not vital to living, and that includes many technological devices. Which explains, in part, my absence from this space (a more detailed explanation is here). But if you're desperate to keep up with our lives (and who isn't, really), check out our tumblr here. I try to keep it up-to-date but I don't know how good a job it will do on keeping you current with us because it reveals absolutely nothing. And I love it for that.

P.S. We got a Dyson vacuum cleaner. In love already. And yes, it was completely necessary for life.
