Sometimes, I feel as though pen to paper (or fingers to keys) brings a sudden stage fright of words to the tongue. Everything I had always wanted to ever share seems to escape every cranny of my subconscious until I end up staring at the paper feeling more lost than ever. So let’s start somewhere easy.
Name: Kriste Janczyk. This is a new name for me. I am a 6 month newly wed and am still getting used to hearing the sound of two families coming together. But Janzcyk is the name of the body I dwell in now- the backbone of which is my husband, David who is as much a part of R&T as I.
Dwelling: My husband and I currently live in a small suburb of Harrisburg, PA. Though we swore we would never stay here after college days, our legs got sucked down into the earth and now we proudly root ourselves in our small but sweet home.
Why blogging?: My desire to write and to live in a creative state has been fostered since childhood. Always outside and never without a ruck sack and prairie boots, I developed a mind and spirit that desired something more than average. I lived in a home where family gatherings were given credit and where the necessity of candles, linens and comfort was made known. As an adult, I feel as though most of my generation has lost some if not all of those ideals. I hope that as I share some maybe inconsequential thoughts, some sense of homesickness will be stirred up that will serve as a catalyst to return back to home cooked meals and conversations full of substance.
Styling: The plan for my husband and I is to give me some space to spread my wings over the next year. After being approached by several photographers to partner in shoots, I began to actually believe I might just have something here. Above all, my husband and I are seeking creative outlets that will make at least some money so that we can fully experience the passion inside of us, burning its way through our bones. For me, this starts with some design work behind the camera.
Rosemary and Thyme: Built on the premise that time can be slowed to a gentle simmer, Rosemary and Thyme Designs works to create a haven for the big picture minds, detail oriented dreamers and comfort seekers. We hope that this space can bring new lines of thought as well as a freedom to create. Above all, we hope that as we balance on this limb that you will too begin to ask deeper questions and be inspired to take bigger leaps full of faith.
Invitation: We would like to ask you to join with us in this journey. Come and share a meal with us, make something with us, laugh with us, learn and grow with us. We are so eager to see what is around the bend in the road. Will you join us and see?
Until next time!
