This year Scott and I have entered a new phase in our life, our 40s. GASP! Clutch pearls! And that change was a catalyst for many changes. I’ve been reevaluating life, what I want out of it, and how I want to spend the rest of it. Deep stuff.
After lots of heart to hearts and deep conversations, Scott and I realized that we’d really like to focus on making our life the best we can RIGHT NOW. And we’re going to do that by focusing on creating a healthy lifestyle that we can maintain without second thoughts and work towards creating a cozy healthy happy home.
We’ve lived in our house for close to 4 years and we have not done anything to it. Nothing. Ugh. While we love our house so much (it’s seriously perfect for us), it has caused a lot of stress (for me because I don’t compartmentalize well) because we have too much stuff and we haven’t really made this house “ours”. It’s kind of like we’re just living here instead of thriving and growing here, if that makes sense.
I was a food blogger in my former life and it took me a long time to accept the fact that I didn’t want to do that anymore. Like it took me years before I realized that I was just not that into it anymore. Oh sure, all the signs were there, lack of motivation to post anything. Struggling to find content. I just didn’t want to accept the fact that I needed more than just posting a recipe.
Not that I’m completely giving up discussing food and recipes (Bish, please.) but I want more out of blogging. I want to discuss life and how to make it the best that I can. I want to talk about fixing up a house to make it a home. I want to talk about ways to live more authentically. I’m also on the path of finding ways to lessen our footprint and work towards using more natural non-toxic products personally, for our house, and with our dogs.
If that sounds like stuff you’re into as well, then stick around and let’s navigate it together.
