Well hello there! I’m so happy you found your way here. I wanted to write a quick intro so you know what this thang is all about. I’m finally getting this bad boy rolling and I’m so excited for what’s to come.
Why Did You Start this Blog?
I’ve had a dream to start some type of blog for I dunno- over five years. I enjoy writing, photography and design, and I wanted a creative outlet to explore these passions. I’ve always had a deep love for fashion (growing up, all I wanted for my Birthday was a trip to the mall), so I always thought in the back of my mind that I’d start a fashion blog. But that never quite felt right. I do adore putting different outfits together, and I could get lost for hours of online shopping, but deep down I just knew there was a different message that I’m meant to share with the world.
Being the lovely perfectionist that I am, I kept putting off starting this thing because I wasn’t 1000% certain about exactly how it would turn out and every little detail and direction it would take. To be honest, I pretty much don’t like starting things until I’m completely certain how and why they’ll be a success (yes, I’m working on this).
Over the past year or so, I’ve been working really hard to learn all that I can about mindset, intentional living, and spirituality. I’ve been feverishly taking in new information, but also allowing space to soak it all in. After all this deep work, connection, and meditation, it became crystal clear that I could no longer run from my desire to create. I don’t know exactly how this journey is going to turn out. And that’s scary for me. But now I know that this means I should lean in even more. Go deeper. Explore further.
Living more intentionally has changed my life in so many ways, and I want to share this journey with you. I want to create a cozy, relaxed space where women can learn and connect.
So Why Slow Living?
I am one heck of a busy lady. Between work, nurturing my relationships and passions, and being a helicopter dog-mom, my mind is always firing on all cylinders. I’m constantly analyzing, planning, and evaluating every little detail (and trust me, there’s a lot of ’em). I spend almost all my time in my head, and not nearly enough time in my body or feeding my soul.
I’ve made it my mission to change this. I want my mind to be a peaceful sanctuary. My body to be a relaxed home. My soul to be deeply nurtured and understood.
I want to consciously surround myself with deep connections and objects that feel good in my soul. I want to savor the small moments of life- making the “mundane” beautiful and sacred. I want to create balance so I can enjoy luscious, deep interaction with the world.
What Does this Have to Do with Me?
I want to share this journey with you. To learn from you. Grow with you. I want to create a community of women who can walk this path together.?We can experiment, stumble, and hold each other accountable to create the beautiful lives we deserve.
For me, the best way to really wrap my head around what I’m learning is to work through it with others. I’m sure my amazing boyfriend and friends can all attest to this. Sometimes ya just need to talk it out. So as I soak in new information and slow living ideas, I promise to share them with all of you. Let’s create an honest, supportive place to share our wins and our missteps.
What Slow Living Topics Will You Cover?
As I mentioned in the beginning, I’m completely unsure how this whole thing is gonna evolve. I’m totally ADD and my passions change constantly. The focus will be slow/conscious/intentional living, but who knows what topics will capture my interest at any given time. Right now, I feel excited about these concepts:
- Ethical fashion
- Minimalism / decluttering
- Calming the mind / anxiety
- Digital detox (ironic, I know)
- Mindful eating
- Spirituality / intuition
I Am So Grateful You’re Here
We’re all divine, vulnerable humans, and there is something so beautiful about joining together to share our stories. We all share the same struggles: fear of not doing enough, of not being enough, of being different. So let’s join together here to remind one another of the truth. We are perfect just as we are. We already have everything we need. We are deeply loved and connected.
Sending a big, warm, cozy hug to all of you! Thanks a million for reading and for your support.
