If you’re new here, it’s likely you’ll start with the first post trying to figure out who I am–and whether I’m worth reading. You may have found me through my other blog. For nearly six years now, I’ve written about all things interior design and how to make your home a more beautiful place to live. However, I’ve come to learn that most readers who are looking for home ideas are looking for lots of pretty pictures and not a lot of words.
Besides being an interior design junkie, I also happen to be a wife, a mom of five, and a girl who likes to write. But, writing too much about your parenting woes, your deep convictions or your favorite mascara is kind of frowned upon if you’re in a very specific niche of blogging already. Thus, came the idea for starting a separate place on the web to write about whatever I want. There’s something freeing about that.
So, I’m approaching this new blog as a place of comfort and encouragement for me–and hopefully for you, too. A reminder that mothering in moderation is okay, if your heart is in the right place. You don’t have to make a homemade birthday cake, or send in the best “Pinterest-y” Valentine’s cards, or even have the most heartfelt Facebook posts about how blessed you are by your family. I hope this blog serves as a reminder that it’s a day-by-day process. And, that His mercies are new each morning. Think of it as me offering you a friendly dose of a great big chill pill.
Looking forward to this. Hope you are, too.
