My Dog Ate My Camera Cord {and other awesome excuses}

So I’ve had grand aspirations of doing another blog post soon. Really, I’ve been trying.

Between crazy disasters, puppy chaos, being on the other side of the country without a computer, working on several big creative projects, our church relaunching this week in our new building (pictures are on my camera and I cannot wait to show you what we’ve been up to since I last posted on it!), and the bad news of my computer dying and Jack chewing on my camera cord enough to break it, I’m feeling a bit out of my blogging rhythm.

In the chaos, I even forgot to host the Fall Nesting Party I usually have early in September. That is lame. I’ll put a linky on THIS FRIDAY the 16th if you would like to link up your fall nesting posts!! You can do a little Fall nesting around the house or share a project from last year and then link up posts! So be here Friday the 16th for the party!!

Back to my camera cord and computer woes, I did a whole Drive By for you in downtown Charleston and on Hilton Head and I can’t show you any of it (except this one lone photo that ended up being loaded) until I get a new camera cord. Right now I’m using my husband’s computer to post, but it looks like I am going to have to buy a new Mac soon. RIP old Mac. When it rains, it pours I guess.

The good news is, though, I had an amazing time in Hilton Head hanging out with the other writers from (in)courage and dreaming about the future and what it could bring.  {I had to steal other people’s pictures for this post.}

DaySpring and Hilton Head Island Chamber of Commerce hosted the (in)courage bloggers for a long weekend of dreaming and planning for the (in)courage community, along with relaxation and fun. Resort Rentals of Hilton Head Island generously provided beautiful beach front accommodations. Thank you to DaySpring for taking such good care of us. Special thanks to Jessica Gardo from the Hilton Head Island Chamber of Commerce for helping coordinate our trip and being so fabulous the entire weekend.

It was an amazing weekend and I feel so blessed to have been a part of it!

(in)courage and Dayspring are planning a fun “in real life” beach party-ish (un)conference  for bloggers and non-bloggers all over the world in 2012 and I hope hope hope you’ll plan on being there! I’ll probably host one of the meet up sites at our church building so if you live in the area you can come hang out with me and others in our community. You can check it out and sign up for the webcast portion of the event here. It should be super fun!

Thanks to you all for hanging out here with me even with my disasters. In spite of all that has happened lately, August was the biggest month ever so far in my four years with The Inspired Room even with my lowest number of posts. How in the world that happened, I don’t know. Guess that means you all prefer I talk less so you can read more — this broken computer and camera cord might be for the best!  Ha!

Much love to you all. I’m really happy that fall has arrived (complete with cool breezes through my window today!). Don’t forget, this Friday, link up a Fall Nesting post!

Frequently asked question in the comments: Doesn’t Jack have any dog toys or bones to play with?

Answer: Yes. But he prefers non-dog toys like paper, cords and feet.

The Lived In Look

Let me tell you a little something about myself.

For some reason, I have eyes that want to see everything in fairy-tale vision.

I imagine that my house should be tidy and beautiful all the time. It should be super cute and styled just right for that imaginary magazine cover in my mind. I have a disease I mention from time to time called magazine cover-itis. But in spite of that terrible sickness, my life rarely looks like the cover of a decorating magazine. Corners of it might appear that way sometimes, until you turn around and see what was behind the camera.

Most of the time, my home is a happy collision of chaos.
