I haven’t been around this space much lately and have been spending a lot of time thinking about this little space. I have had every emotion under the sun, thoughts about throwing in the towel, thoughts about changing up the content, thoughts about changing the name. So many thoughts.
A lot of people have said that blogging is dying now that we have social media and YouTube, but I love this space too much to let it go. I’ve decided to jump back in it, I will be creating LESS weekly content but MORE meaningful content. I will still document our family, but you will also see me sharing about the topics that truly energize my soul. There will be more building a business/blogging type posts, more self-care/wellness content and more real life mama talk.
You guys, I have so many big dreams. So many dreams of ditching the 9-5 and building my own empire.
Did you know that I started photography as a hobby a few years ago and now it has turned into a business? I did my first two weddings this summer and I won’t do weddings ever again. I learned that I much prefer lifestyle/brand photography.
Did you know that I started a new passion project/business called Roots Run Home? It’s all about making memories as a family during each season. It is in the beginning stages but I know it will do big things.
Did you know that I love all things content management, SEO, digital design and digital marketing? I am constantly seeking ways to learn more.
You guys, if there has been one thing I learned this past year, it has been that you CANNOT fill up others, take care of others, love on others until you have filled yourself up.
Did you know that I am enneagram 2 and an obliger according to Gretchen Rubin?
Did you know that perfectionism runs deep? That I would rather not start or do something if I know it won’t be perfect.
Did you know that I will take care of everyone else before I even think about doing something for myself?
Did you know that I have been working so hard on turning all of this around? Because no good comes from pouring out of an empty cup.
You guys being a mom is everything I could have imagined, it is the best, but it is also pure exhaustion.
Did you know she still doesn’t sleep thru the night? She wakes up way less, but it is still anywhere from 1-3 times.
Did you I said I would never let her sleep in our bed. Well on those nights that she wakes up 5 times, she ends up in bed with us because I am too tired to care.
Did you know that she has this hidden alarm that sounds every time I wake up early to get something done, so that she wakes up too.
It feels good to be writing again…I hope that you still come by this space and say hi, check out new content and join me in making memories.
