Helllloooooo out there! Have you, like me, discovered recently that you kind of miss the blogging boom that happened about a decade ago? I've found the novelty of instagram has worn off a little and I'm craving a little more than what comes with scrolling through those perfect little squares. I've toyed with the idea of
We celebrated New Year's Eve tonight at a family friendly gala in our neighborhood that had a balloon drop at 8pm. The party clothes are off and the pajamas are on and I am reflecting on the past year and setting intentions for the one ahead.
I would like for this blog to become more of a lifestyle blog, but the little voices of doubt are loud and mean. Do you hear them too? They tell me, "What, you create a lifestyle blog? You're not cool/skinny/young/pretty/smart enough for that! How can you post a photo of yourself wearing the latest trends in that body? You should lose weight first. Your house should be clean and look like a magazine photo shoot first. You should get it all together first. You should work on becoming a better writer and photographer first. You should have if all figured out first."
Well, in 2019 my only resolution is to stop waiting for everything to be perfect and enjoy life. Easier said than done? Certainly. Of course I don't have all the answers, but I do have some good ideas to start and I thought this would be a great space to explore this idea since I know we all struggle with our own voices. My vision for this blog is to share with you all of the ways we can get down to the real business of living our best lives, being grateful, feeling all the feels. I'd like to help by being honest about not having it all, but sharing the little tips that help make some of the drudgery of family life a little more joyful, like getting a healthy meal on the table even when your toddler is melting down or you're running kids to multiple practices.
I wish you all the best in 2019! Cheers!
