Hi there! If you're here, thank you! This blog, over the years has been an incredible source of connections to remarkable people. Over the last few years I've popped in here and there but I've struggled to figure out what I wanted to share. I've always viewed my blogs as a journey more than a magazine. I don't want to produce content but rather share stories. I'm not sure if you know this about me but I've actually been blogging since 2007. So as you can imagine, I've run out of things to say quite a few times. And since my life has evolved so many times, in so many big ways since then, each time I find myself a big lost as I try to discover a new voice and way to use this amazing outlet.
In the past I've blogged about my feelings, poetry, photography, going vegan, vegan recipes, life as a young married person, photography, motherhood, fitness... and now....
I haven't really know how to start talking about this new stage of my life. I've wanted to. Oh how I've wanted to pour myself out on the page like I used to. I actually have sat down a bunch of times with lists of things I want to share and got overwhelmed by how to even start and just shut my laptop.
But this spring I've been feeling so compelled to get back into this space. I hope that you'll hang around. My intention is to share with you my life... as an artistpreneur. It's funny to me now. So simple really. I chose that name for this blog when I was a photographer trying to build my business and I wanted to connect with other people who were going through the same struggles. Now... I'm sharing as someone who transitioned from artist to entrepreneur (although once an artist, always an artist, am I right?) and I feel like now I have more to say on it than ever!
So... I'm not going to give you some sort of editorial calendar. I'm not even going to promise a certain amount of posts a week. But I can tell you that I'm so excited to start sharing more personally again. To pull back the curtain and talk about my life for the last 2 and a half years and what's coming up!
To give you a bit of an idea... so that hopefully you'll get excited... I plan on sharing tons of photos of some of the big events that have happened and are happening. I want to talk a lot about being a female business owner, being your own boss, and being a working mom. I want to talk to you about our life, how it's changed and how we make it all work. I want to share with you a big upcoming adventure we are taking and offer my best insights into what it's like to be a stay at home, work from home, retired photographer, full time online wellness coach, who travels around the country in an RV, mentors other people on how to be success business owners, and is also on a huge health journey herself! (Woo, I did that in one breath! Just kidding, I typed it.)
So please stick around. And if you're new here, I hope you love it. I feel truly elated to be getting back to my blogging roots. And since blog posts are always better with photos. Here's one from our vow renewal. It was incredible and it's one of the things I can't wait to share with you!
