This blog post has been a long time coming. Well, really this whole blog thing has been a long time coming. For sometime now I have had this sense of urgency to start something, to create something, but I could not quite put my finger on it. Because I cannot decide exactly what that something is and it isn’t all figured out, I’m a little fearful. When fear creeps in and begins to cripple me, I choose to not start anything at all…it’s safer that way. No Risk! Who’s with me on this? I know I can’t be the only one out there! I find myself even staring at the computer screen now thinking, ooh should I delete that or should I add this or what will my future readers want to read? I don’t want to ever lose sight of being intentional, but I have finally decided, I will never have everything all figured out. If I wait for that time, I will never start anything that may have the potential to become fruitful. That is not a good thing, friends. That is not how we are called to live this life. SO, I have officially said no more to the what if mentality. I have decided to ditch the “everything must be planned” and just GO.
With this lifestyle blog, I am inviting you into “our nest.” One of my favorite wedding gifts from a sweet, sweet friend, was a pillow which reads “Our Nest.” This rectangular, plush, cuteness sits on our comfy couch in the living room as a reminder of the space my husband and I get to share. As a newlywed, it is my desire and my husband’s desire to have authentic relationships and to create a space that is comfortable and real inside our home. One of our favorite things is to invite friends and family over to our little space for food and fellowship and to share laughter and create sweet memories together. Homes have always had a special place in my heart. I guess you could say many “houses have built me.” Because home means so much to my heart, I want to make the components of a home the focus of my blog and Instagram. My hope is that through this blog we can share fun things with one another, whether it be through encouragement, devotion and inspiration, yummy, healthy and affordable recipes, budget tips, fixer upper and design ideas, or entertainment. These elements make sharing a “nest” fun! Today, I have decided to ditch the plan and just share LIFE. Pushing the publish button without regret in….3,2,1
