I’m thrilled to share that after a very long, unintended hiatus, I am back in the blogging sphere. The past 12 months have shown me that when I make a life change, I make a life change. New city, new job, new relationship status – they’ve all changed. Quarantine has provided me with time to do a lot of soul searching, and by taking the time to determine the woman I want to be and the goals I have for myself, I was able to determine what I wanted this space to be moving forward.
My goal is for this to be a space full of encouragement. I want to be your internet big sister and cheer you on! As woo woo as it sounds, I want this to be a place where we can all be vulnerable and share hopes and dreams, but also our disappointments and how we’ve bounced back.
One of my biggest frustrations about the blogging world is the culture of materialism. Yes, this is going to be a place where I share products I love and great deals I’ve found. But I’m not coming in this time around looking to monetize. If I make a few extra bucks to put toward my site hosting, I will be thrilled. But I’m not coming in with that as my intention. It will be true lifestyle content and probably a little random at times.
I want to share things that will make you smile and make your life easier. Period.
With all of that said, here are a few things about me… just in case you’ve forgotten in my absence!
- I’m an Enneagram 3 and recovering Type A personality. Nashville has changed me, y’all. If there’s one thing I’ve learned while adjusting to life in a big city, it’s that you have to roll with the punches. I’ve become much less rigid of a person and started having a lot more fun. With that being said…
- I’m happiest when my bed is made and my kitchen is clean. Some things will never change.
- My dream job is being the co-host of Catfish. Seriously, Nev, call me if you ever need a guest host. I know how to hold a camera! (PS – I also need to bring my roommate along!)
- I came back to blogging as my creative outlet. I haven’t touched on this much, but I no longer work in marketing. I play with numbers and spreadsheets all day! Now that I’m not using my creative energy during the day, I find myself itching to create. It is a wonderful feeling to create without pressure.
- I’ve finished 16 books since quarantine started. It has been the one thing keeping me sane. If you aren’t using the Libby app, I highly recommend it.
