I’ve been so inspired lately to really revamp my blog and the content found here that last night I finally purchased the Blog Life ecourse by A Beautiful Mess. I bought and completed Blog Love, their previous blog ecourse (written a few years ago) and loved it so much. I knew I would love this one, too, especially with all the new content included.
It feels natural for my blogging career to have highs and lows. After all, this blog is a small reflection of my real life. Some seasons (or years) are harder than others. Some seasons (or years) are incredibly fruitful and inspiring. Even though there are ups and downs I think the main lesson I’ve learned is if it’s important I should keep at it. The same goes for real life.
My online presence has slowed a bit since the new year, but I feel so confident about that decision. I know there will come a time when my family life is less busy, so there’ll be more time to easily sneak away and work on outside projects. But for now it’s incredibly different than it used to be. So rather than work against it, I’m embracing it. And to be honest it’s given me such affirmation and ease. Everything with my personal life seems to be 200% better than before. (I know, right?!) It was hard to make this decision but I feel so brave.
The other day I gathered some stray pieces of art and created a new collage for a wall in our little reading nook/play area (see above photo). It was so fun to have the inspiration to try something new (switch out the art inside the red frame and even repurpose old nail holes). We have some wooden “items” (I think one’s a talking stick?) from our trip to Tanzania, Africa two years ago, and I mentioned to Zack we need to hang them on the wall. I love showcasing non-traditional memorabilia on our walls. It reminds me of our adventures. Zack of course loved the idea. So, stay tuned ;)
I wish you a happy, peaceful weekend! You can find me working (slowly) on this ecourse… Three cheers for inspiring reads. xo
