Seven Years. It has been SEVEN years and one month since I published my first blog post. I started before scheduling a post was a thing. Before Instagram. Before anyone really knew much about blogging in general. I can still name a handful of the girls that were also blogging and that I talked to back then and all but one are still blogging and successful to this day. I started back when I was going through infertility. Maybe some of you remember reading about that a long time ago, but for the newbies, that is basically why I started. We had been married nearly one year, decided to start trying and then ran into some issues and it was a very dark time for me, so to distract myself, I started writing. It was so helpful and gave me an amazing outlet during that time but I never would have imagined it would turn into what it is today and I have you to thank for that.
To me, you all feel like old friends. I feel like I can talk freely to you and that you care. I love to talk about fashion and babies and marriage with you guys. I love to celebrate wins with you and cry with you over losses. You have been here through nearly my entire marriage and through all four of my babies (God is so good).
I want to be transparent now. A few weeks ago, I confessed to Ryan that I wasn’t happy with my blog. I haven’t grown much over the last couple of years despite hard work and effort. I have started doing more fashion related content and while I do love fashion and have a huge passion for it, there is so much more to my life and at the end of the day, my closet is a tiny, tiny fraction of that. My kids and family and friends are my world. I love to read and write and I miss doing that. It is therapeutic for me and I haven’t just sat down to write in a very long time – until now.
With that being said, I wanted you to know that I am planning to share a lot more marriage and family content on here again. I am planning to get back to recipes, sharing our life, motivation, a little fitness (more on this soon) and more! I am sorry for getting so off track lately, but to be honest, fashion is easy. People love to see it on Instagram and it is easier to sit down for 20 minutes to throw a try-on post together rather than an hour or two working on a well-written post. Now that the kids have started school and we are getting into a new routine, I am planning to sit and write every single day. I don’t promise a post every day, but will try to be more consistent in posting Monday, Wednesday and Fridays again. I am sorry for being super inconsistent over the past 5 months, but honestly, life since having Tucker has been very demanding. I am working on getting back to a healthier me and a healthier routine which starts with this. And water. And movement.
I will continue to share fashion throughout – maybe once a week or so, but for the most part, I want to get back to blogging. Really writing and connecting with you all, because that is why I started this in the beginning and what I love to do most of all. Thank you for sticking around and sticking with me through the craziness of life.
Now, I would love it if you would let me know what kind of fall content you want to see from me this upcoming season! Let me know in the comments or shoot me an email! Thank you for hanging out with me over the last seven years. It is truly humbling and I am so thankful for each and every one of you! Until next time…
