It was a pretty normal day today for Ten on Ten. A little dark and gloomy outside but the red cups debuted at Starbucks and we had fun enjoying Holiday drinks while listing to some Christmas music and digging into some fun crafting too. I realize that there is so much I desperately need to share in this space – for instance the darling woman in braids is Erica, my assistant for over a year with Rebekah Gough Jewelry but I don’t think she has never been formally introduced here on my blog…#fail! But I am in this constantly weird head space about blogging (you too?). I love writing and sharing, I love documenting beauty through my lens (hello Ten on Ten for nine years?!!) I love crafts and baking…but the pull and sway of popular social media keeps me away. For instance do I add a link up to this post? Do people do that anymore?? You guys tell me, I would truly love to know where you are sitting with blogs these days. Which ones do you read and why. What do you like – what inspires you into your role in this beautiful world we’ve been given to participate in?

I’m here and I’m kind of fixing to jump back in but I know I’ve said that before. Sharing life publicly has both incredible blessing and can be altogether terrifying. I am honored to even have a space to share though and good grief do I just adore looking through old old posts of my life and counting all the goodness and blessing that has transpired. I stand consistent in that I believe we all have beauty in our everyday lives and if Ten on Ten is the one constant that forces me to mark it down every single month than I don’t think I could ever quit this project.

So I hope you had a beautiful day in whatever you found around you, I’m here and I’m trudging through with you on this journey. Be back soon with more of my heart to share. xoxo

  • Holly - i’ve been hit or miss with my blog lately too, and trying to figure out what I really want to do there. But personally I love the link ups and loved the ten on ten. it was always one of my favorite ways to share a slice of my life lately.ReplyCancel

  • Brittany Sprague - While I think link ups have slowly died down-atleast I dont see them nearly as often as I once did. I dont know that I think that’s a reason to stop doing them-especially with the ten on ten. I’ve been following your blog for the better end of four years, and have loved your ten on tens. I’ve loved watching your jewelry business come alive and have appreciated your honesty in your writing.

    All that to say, I’m pretty sure I’ll always read your posts. Your blog is one that I will type in my url space (whatever that’s called) just to see if you’ve posted anything new.

    Thanks for posting! From Helsinki, finland!ReplyCancel

  • Kelsie - Keep blogging Rebekah!! At the writing workshop I just went to, one of the exercises we were assigned was to write down our fav 3 bloggers and why. You were one of mine. Keep at it! You have a gift!!!ReplyCancel

  • Leanne - I really love the ten on ten posts, such a beautiful way to document life. I’ve been joining along with you for about 5 1/2 years. But I’m feeling the busyness & read blogs less & post on my blog less. I think everyone is.
    I’m not ready to give up yet although I do forget! (haven’t done my November 10 on 10 yet- I’m thinking of doing 10 on 20 perhaps)

    I’ve always enjoyed reading & looking at your blog. Thank you xReplyCancel

  • Melissa Mensavage - I like to read things that are inspiring. Reading your stories, or reading the stories in the 10 on 10 pictures is inspiring to me. I feel like I have so little time to do anything with my two young boys and all their activities, so the few minutes I do get, I want to feel like my time on the phone, or computer, was spent being inspired. You do a great job of that with the content you share. Thank you!! =)
