When I started this blog after selling my wedding planning business, I had grand visions for it. I planned to have DIY projects, lots of events and crafting tips. I also wanted it to be a place where I could share my life, as that was something I didn’t feel freedom to do on my wedding blog.
I have loved having a space where I can post whatever I want- whether it is photos of our products or photo shoots we have been a part of, recapping parties I have been a part of throwing or sharing about my life and my kids, mainly through instafriday posts. I have always felt a bit of failure, though, when I think about everything I set out for this blog to be. My intentions of creating new content and projects for the blog never came to fruition because I just don’t have time for that. I am not a blogger- I am a crafter and an etsy shop owner. More than that, I’m a wife, a mom and a friend and all of that takes priority over blogging, so there have not been nearly as many posts as I had hoped. I am okay with that though. From here on out, I don’t want to put any expectations on what I “should” be blogging about but am not.
So what does this mean? I am still going to post most of what I have been posting. I am still going to try to do instafriday every Friday. I am still going to share photos of my products. I am still going to recap our seasonal parties and birthday parties and baby showers, but without putting any expectations on myself about it.
The other big change is that I am going to be writing more. A few months ago, out of nowhere, I felt a knot it my stomach and suddenly felt like God was telling me that I need to write again. I have always enjoyed writing, but after college, my journalling slowly dwindled and I did not have much occasion for writing anymore. Especially after the kiddos came around, I had no desire and/or time for it. So the conviction that I needed to be writing again came out of left field. Way way out of the outer left field.
I’ve started slowly and it has been really therapeutic for me. Especially while dealing with some hard stuff, writing has allowed me some space and time to process, pray and think. So, every so often, I will be sharing my thoughts and my heart on here. I hope it will help others process life or encourage readers through what I’m learning but, overall, I just want this to be a place that I feel safe to open up, create and share.
