A Name

I've been rather critical lately of people and the internet. Those two things together more than apart. I am most definitely in this group of people. We post and like and share and we post some more. As said before, I had been unsatisfied with the content I was sharing and I decided to make a change. With this change and new space I wanted to give it a name that truly reflected my life. Nice & Quiet was settled on for many reasons. One of them being that I want to be utterly clear from the forefront that my life is just that, nice and quiet. I may post pretty pictures of pretty things and I will upload pictures of my face that were taken on good days in decent lighting and edited in photoshop. But my real, every day life is nice and quiet. It's not overly spectacular and it's not inherently awful. It's not incredibly eventful and it's not terribly bland. It's nice and quiet and I wouldn't want anyone believing different.

  1. Love that. I have so much respect for people who are know who they are (even in the weirdness that is the Internet) and create for their own sake, not for the approval of others. Stories from a "nice and quiet" life are rather refreshing to me. xo

  3. I agree. Lately I've noticed that I have been critical and jealous of people on social media and I don't even know these people! They all seem to have such "perfect" lives full of travel to exotic places, perfect families and really nice things. And I'm over here like... uhhh I kept my houseplant alive today... ha. It's refreshing to follow someone who is real and keeps things nice and quiet.
