go for the gold!

It's time. I've been talking about starting a blog and an etsy shop forever. People have been encouraging me to "go for the gold!", but it just hasn't come to fruition, until now. I planned on starting this, way before baby E was even in the picture (and she is now five months old!). I took an online class that I was sure would motivate me to get going. It set me in the right direction and gave great tips for starting an online shop or blog. I was mostly excited to get started, but then overwhelmed at the same time. There is so much to know. So much to do! I admit, there was a bit of the fear of failure, and fear of man. Will people like what I'm creating? Will they understand my writing or like my photos? What if...? There are so many blogs out there...what makes me think mine will be any different?

It's time to just "go for the gold!" and get started!

I was recently encouraged by a great friend, and I bet she didn't even know it. She asked if I could make her two journals instead of one. One for herself and one to use as a giveaway on her own personal blog. I was so encouraged and excited! This was more motivation to get me going. It really doesn't matter how many people read this blog or even if people love it. It's here to be an encouragement to others, to show/share some creativity and tasty recipes, and to be real. That's all.

enjoy! here we go!

love love <3


  1. Each week I decide to quit blogging at least once. I feel exactly the same way! What do I have to say that hasn't been said? I, for one, am excited to hear what you have to say. Count me in.

  2. Wow...thanks for the encouragement Jessi! :)
