New Site, Who Dis?
Have you ever been challenged to think about what you want your life to look like 10 years from now? I’m sure I was asked to do this back in high school, but I particularly remember it coming up last year during one of my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) meetings when my daughter, Evelyn, was maybe just a year old. At the time, I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t think of her as a 10 or 11 year-old, nor did I want to. But, I recently came across the challenge again when I was reading Rachel Hollis’s new book, Girl, Stop Apologizing.
This time, I loved the exercise, and it really helped me get a clear vision of what I wanted for my life, and has helped me think about what I’m doing now that could help or hinder that dream. Since then, I feel like I’ve been able to live my life a bit more intentionally, and have a clearer idea of the direction I’m heading. I know that I want to be an exceptional wife and mother. I want my home to be simple, minimalistic, and efficient. I also want to get this blog going again.
But, I decided that if I was going to come back and start blogging, I wanted to come back with something new. So, my husband, Joe, helped me get started with this brand spanking new blog! Isn’t it beautiful? In addition to the new look, though, I’ve also got a ton of new content coming. Most of it is parenting related, since I am expecting our second child mid-August, and that’s pretty much all that’s been on my mind. But, you can also look forward to other lifestyle posts where I’ll talk to you about beauty, fashion, home décor, and of course there will be some posts about recent knitting projects I’ve done!
With this new relaunch, I also want to be more open with you. I don’t think that I’ve ever been dishonest, but I’ve definitely attempted to make things look a little shinier than they are. I’d like to think that’s just my Midwestern personality coming through, but I’m pretty sure that it’s actually the fact I’ve made some pretty dumb mistakes, and I’d like to look smarter than I am!
At least for now, you’ll be getting one new blogpost every day, Monday through Saturday. Yes, I know, that sounds crazy, but I really wanted to come back with a bang! I don’t know if that schedule will last forever, but I’ve done a ton of writing in preparation for this relaunch, and I hope that you’re just as excited about this new adventure as I am! I really want to provide content that is helpful to you, so if there’s anything in particular that you want me to cover that you haven’t seen yet, please reach out and let me know via my contact page. I will do my best to get to it as soon as possible!
