Well hello. It's been too long, and I feel like I've been away for a very long time. I've been busy, yes. But if I'm being honest, I've been a little nervous to share and to write. I've been busy figuring out this new role as a wife (it's fun!), carving out my space as a young professional (when does one stop being "young" and become simply a professional?), and feeding my soul with books and bike rides and chihuahua squeezing.
I've wanted to write about it all, but each time I came here to do that, I would ask myself, "so what?" Why do these people want to hear about your struggles and joys of becoming a bike-commuter? Or will anyone care about the discussions J and I have had about Smart Couples Finish Rich? I adore living in a tiny home and want to share a day in the life, but is that narcissistic?
And here it is: When it comes down to it, there are so many incredible people doing incredible things that I sometimes (right now) feel like an impostor. I'm also feeling a little stuck. A lot stuck. Next month I'll be unplugging and heading to camp with fellow bloggers at the Texas Style Council Conference! This could not come at a better time. Major face time instead of screen time with women I admire (hello shine theory!) and a chance to learn how to re-tell my story.
When I started writing here, I wanted it to be a place for people to come together and learn something. I still want that. I still want to help you create a life you love, learn how to budget -time and money, be productive, and most of all believe in yourself. I also want to share what's happening in my life, because even if we can't meet face to face as often as we'd like, we'll always have Paris. Er... Hello, Clementine!
If you're interested in attending TXSC 2015 and wanna chat about it, reach out! It was one of the best things I've ever done for myself and this space.
