THANK YOU to everyone who filled out my little survey last week! Your responses were so helpful and I loved all the sweet little notes that were left in the comments made my day. I am so grateful to be a part of this community of uplifting bloggers! Thanks to you, I am ready to start exploring new directions with this little online space. Things you can expect to see more of around here include:
FREE PRINTABLES// Who doesn't love free things? I have offered a few free printables in the past, and I loved the challenge of coming up with a new, unique design that people would really want to take the time to print and display in their home! I never was able to stick with doing it very consistently, but I plan on changing that. The topics and type of printable will vary, but starting in September you can plan on a new free printable every week. I've got all sorts of ideas in the works for calendars, budgeting books, potty training charts, and a bunch more adorable designs you can frame and hang in your home or office, so get excited! *insert party emoji here* (My iPhone has spoiled me and now I feel like I can't write without emojis! haha)
OUR DAY TO DAY LIFE// This is a hard one because, like I mentioned before, I am still trying to find the balance of sharing the right amount without oversharing about our home and personal life. All of our most personal things will still only be shared on the private blog, but I do plan on sharing more of our day to day life here! Those are my favorite types of posts to read on other blogs, as well as my favorite types of posts to write and I am hoping the balance of sharing the right amount will be something I can learn over time.
DESIGN & CODING TIPS// I'm definitely not an expert at design or coding, but I have been designing blogs for a couple years now and recently hit the 250 blog design mark! I have picked up a few little tricks along the way and would love to share them with other bloggers. I don't plan to share anything super complicated because I am far from a professional coder, but if there is a certain thing you have been wanting to know how to do for your own blog, let me know in the comments below and I can definitely make a tutorial happen!
LDS RESOURCES// There have been so many times that I hear my mom/sister/friend/myself complaining that they need a cute handout for visiting teaching or their lesson and don't have the time to make one themselves. Well, hello! I am planning to start posting visiting teaching handouts to go with the message every month, as well as a few lesson aids for Relief Society, Young Women's and Primary every once in a while! I get to exercise my creative ability and your Saturday night stress session gets a little less stressful. Win, win! If you have been dying for anything in particular or have a great idea, send it my way!
WOMEN'S FASHION// Honestly, this one is to challenge myself more than anything. I hardly ever get dressed in anything but workout clothes, but if I do, it is usually just a plain t-shirt and jeans or leggings. The idea of posting pictures of myself and my outfits online absolutely terrifies me! That being said, I know that all the greatest things happen when I am outside my comfort zone and a little bit of fashion blogging is just what I need. I'm not promising my outfits will be life changing or that I won't look like a giraffe in all my awkward poses, but I can promise that you can see a tiny bit more of that sort of stuff around these parts. Wish me luck!
There will also be posts about budgeting, gift ideas, product reviews, food, weight loss, parenting and random ramblings thrown in occasionally because those are all things that are a part of my day-to-day life, and this is a lifestyle blog after all! ;) Again, thanks to all of you who helped me by filling out that survey and leaving encouraging words. I am so excited to get this blog up and running again, and I hope you are just as excited to follow along. If you aren't already, be sure to follow me on social media and Bloglovin' so you can be updated with every new post!
