Thanks so much for all the support for the new site! I am so encouraged and blown away by the response. It feels really scary to put myself out there in this way, but creating this site and focusing in on my purpose has proven to be so worth it.
As I mentioned in a previous post, this blog wont look tons different, but my hope is that it is more focused. You guys took the reader survey and let me know some crucial info I've been dying to know about you! Who actually reads this blog, and how did we meet? What help do you need in life, motherhood, and cooking? I've had some time to process the answers to the survey + mesh it all with some ideas that were already swirling around in my head and heart. The fun part is that the answers to the survey line up so specifically with where I was already heading. This just fires me up to know that y'all are craving the same things I am, and we can walk this road together.
Here's what you can expect:
+ To read more about my life: goal setting, my journey as a new business owner, stories, life lessons, practical and heart level life helps.
+ Recipes. On this one I ask for your patience ;) There's a reason there hasn't been many recipes on the blog over the past few months. I'm currently writing #31gatherings (my eBook due to release this Spring) and all my recipe developing energy is going into that. I'm okay with this because I know you will benefit so much from the book, and I can't wait for it to be in your hands! I also can't wait to have brain space back to share recipes HERE with you :)
+ Getting a bit more real about motherhood -- the joys, hardships + practical helps.
+ Inspiration for the importance of sharing meals with others, and the heart of hospitality. I'm hopeful to respond to this at both the heart level as well as by giving some practical tips for making meals happen, getting people to your table and enjoying it.
+ The overwhelming majority of y'all expressed insecurities in your own cooking and hospitality. If you want more pep talks and practical help, sign up for my monthly newsletter (located on the right side of my blog or at the bottom if you're on your phone) and you'll get just that.
I also like to share about all these things over on my Instagram. Follow me there if you like to receive inspiration and info in small bites ;)
And the WINNER of the "Gather Around Our Table" print is Rebecca Finberg! I'll email you soon about getting this pretty print in your hands! :)
