Hello! Remember back when I was pregnant and I thought. "Hm. If I can get about 5 friends to each do 2 guests posts, at post them 2x a week, that will last 5 weeks. That should be enough until I am ready to start blogging again."

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

But I am ready to ease back into this thing, as I have been doing over at Hank & Lucy. I don't think it will be with the same regularity that I used to post, and I want to avoid blogging for the sake of blogging, youknowwhatimean?

That in mind, I am curious. I have a little bit of an idea of what form the slightly pared down A Desert Fete will take, but I'd like to hear what kind of content you best like to see on ADF. What keeps you coming back?

In return I can offer you cute babies and cats. (Ok, and maybe some dogs soon, too.)

  1. those are the cutest photos! pretty worried about how my 2 cats will react when i have a baby... i like it when you post decor-related stuff and desert pics always make me happy. but babies and cats are good too!

  2. If you only offered pictures of cute babies with cats (and dogs), I'd probably keep coming back. So cute.

  3. Oh my goodness, I love his bald baby head.

    As far as what I love about ADF, I'm a sucker for your photographs. And I love posts on "nesting," home decor, gardening, food - it's all very inspiring! - but I do love posts on babies and animals, too. xo.

  5. Your aesthetic vision. However that manifests. You know I think the world of your taste.

  9. H + Manray is a good start, especially if they're holding hands (ish).

    Photos you take, things you make/design/like, the desert, swimming holes, food, beer, music.

  10. I agree with others about your aesthetic. I like the desert and home photos.

  11. Photos of babies and cats and dogs and home life n stuff, and whatever else you would like to share. That last photo kills me, though pretty sure that H and M holding hands is awesome too!

  12. What wonderful photos! In your previous post too, just so sweet! And congratulations on little Henry Sparrow (great name, by the way). Just found you via your guest post on camp comfort and thought I'd drop by and say hello!

  14. HAAAAANK!
    gawd is he effin' cute.

    obvi i'll keep coming back here no matter what you post, lady. i just love the JAMIE part of ADF. go back through some of your favorite old posts and identify why there were successful; bets are that it's because they had a strong voice, a strong sense of *your* world.

    loves and hugs to your whole lil' fam. xoxo

    Jamie - First of all, Congratulations on your new mommy hood! Enjoy spending time with your new little man and don't stress about the blog. What I enjoy about your blog (and generally speaking) is quality vs. quantity. It's very organic, so post whatever (desert, babies, cats, desert cats, etc..) whenever. Wow. I feel like I sound like The Dude.

    also, are you *trying* to make me jealous? i'm not sure i could get a kitty/baby photo even if i offered him treats. :(
