For a long time, I have been thinking about revamping the blog. When I started it about 5 years ago, I was a newlywed and wanted to write about the things that I would be learning about marriage. I wanted to write about how my faith would intersect and what it looked like to be a new wife. I wanted to write about everything that I was learning as a wife in hopes that it would be helpful.
Now, my focus has changed slightly, but only to expand. I have learned a lot in the past 5 years of being married. Not only have I learned more about who I am as a person, as a Christian, but I have learned about what it means to be a wife, in the fun times and the hard times. I have learned that getting married doesn’t mean that having babies will follow and that children are not a given. I have learned more about what health and self control looks like. I have learned the hard way about food allergies & intolerances and what it looks like to ignore them or treat them. I have learned how to stick to a budget while providing healthy, delicious dinners. I have learned about the paleo / primal diet and how it benefits health. I have learned a lot on home and food DIY to save money (the price of ghee is REALLY ridiculous when you see how easy it is to make your own!) I have learned more about the Bible, how to read it properly, and how to apply it to life. I have learned more about my tendencies toward anxiety and how to fight that with Scripture. I have learned how to sew better, how to follow patterns, and about so many sewing feet! I have learned new ways of saving money and how to make my money work for me. I have learned how to trust the Lord when I have been super fearful or unsure or anxious. I have learned how to manage my ADD symptoms. I have learned that allergies in central Texas have no respect, lol! Yes, I have learned a lot! But at the same time, there is so much more that I need to learn and will learn.
And so, with the focus changes, my content will be changing & expanding & talking about all of the above (and then some). And by the way – I must say that I don’t write anything as an authority, but simply as a woman who desires to help others with what I have learned in hopes to be a blessing. That also means that I will be blogging much more frequently. Life happens, but I don’t believe in learning things and keeping them to myself.
So here goes!
