I can’t believe it has been this long since my last post. I’ve looked at my blog several times this summer and wondered if I should just delete it. Life has not been the best the past few months. There has been family turmoil, health problems and even sudden passing of a family member in the prime of her life.
I have not had much enthusiasm to post about much of anything. So, I asked myself if it was something that I still wanted to do or even enjoyed doing. Well, I decided that I am going to give it another go…..but this time with some changes. When I first started my blog in 2008, I was undecided to what it should be named. I decided on Crystal Rose Cottage because at the time, roses, cottages were all the rage. I was really “into” that kind of thing. I still am, but I have also evolved over the last few years. Haven’t we all?
I decided to change the title of my blog because back when my oldest son was a young teenager, he would tease me about all the “cutesy” country decorating in the house and he would say to me “oh mom, it’s so darling….looks like darling land”. Of course he said it in a “tease your mom kind of way”.( I think I used the word “darling “ a lot too) So, I have changed my blog to “Adventures in Darling Land” because I guess that is what my blog is truly about. Even though the kids are grown and on their own, my home is still “darling” in my opinion and I do have adventures!
I hope I can make this blog a little fresher , a little more interesting and hopefully have more frequent updates.
Hope you are enjoying the start to this beautiful Fall season!
