• A Brief Tour of Some Changes

    I mentioned before my break that there would be changes to this blog. I’m delighted that almost all of it has been done, though it was all extremely easy and absolutely makes my life as a blogging mom so much easier. It also gives me more time to read, which is amazingly nice. The Mother’s Corner is Semi-Closed As I mentioned, I’m cutting back on the motherhood posts. The Mother’s Corner is still accessible, but I won’t be posting my Finding Magic in Motherhood series anymore, nor will I be posting quite as many parenting-related posts. As much as I had enjoyed writing about being a mom, I don’t find…

  • Catching my breath - looking back over what I've accomplished over the years

    Catching My Breath

    The universe communicates with me in unexpected ways. Perhaps you think I’m crazy or perhaps you completely understand. Either way, all that really matters is that I’m not completely in charge of my own life. Life has it’s plans for me and, no matter how much I fight against it, it’s a losing battle for me. Anyways, yes, the universe communicates with me in unexpected ways. For the past few months, it has been speaking to me through a dear blogging friend, Brooke, to remind me to keep my heart and mind open, to let the good and bad in and simply experience them for a fuller, richer life. But…

  • I Did What To This Blog?!

    About a month ago, I changed up this blog. New theme, new logo, new menu, new about page. If you’ve wandered by over the past few weeks, you’ve undoubtedly seen it. I was pleased with it. It looked pretty. But… Every time I looked at the home page something bothered me. The post boxes were different sizes! I don’t know about you, but it was driving me nuts. I didn’t like looking at it. It was not pretty. I loved how the logo and header worked together. I loved the way the menu looked. But that home page was just a mess! So now if you stumble by you’ll see…

  • New Site Address

    If you try to reach The Lily Cafe at katpersephone.wordpress.com, I’m sorry to say it will no longer work. Why it was even katpersephone in the first place eludes me, but that’s a story for another time. With the changes we are making to the Cafe, I decided it was time for the name and address to actually match. So our new address is now thelilycafe.wordpress.com. We hope to see you there!

  • Open During Construction

    First of all, a gigantic thank you to everyone who follows, views, likes, and comments! (Especially the Saturday posts. They really make my husband’s day! So, huge thank you!) I didn’t have any grand plans for The Lily Cafe when I decided to reopen it at the beginning of the year, but, somehow, it’s been growing, almost faster than I can keep up. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart! Secondly, because it’s been going so well, my husband has been somewhat gently pushing me to brand the blog, grow it, and eventually monetize it. How he expects me to do this when sometimes I prefer to just…
