I recalled some of the motivations that I had when I started blogging over a year ago. I wanted every individual to know that they are beautiful. Really. And to be confident in their uniqueness. Oftentimes we sabotage our beauty, by trying to be somebody else or by ignoring the physical completely. I want to encourage and inspire myself and others to go beyond these pitfalls.
And in a more ancillary way, I wanted to share a bit of myself and my life, so that you know I'm just a regular person. A person with a husband, and [soon to be] four children. A person on a budget. A person with a biggish nose. A person who has insecurities. A person who likes to eat and drink and live simply and beautifully.
So what's the result of all this ruminating? One conclusion that I have reached is that I want this space to be more interactive. I used to get lots of style questions and emails about miscellaneous things. I think I killed it (in the traditional, negative sense), when I listed "E-Consulting" on my Services page. So, I'm removing that. The best part about this blog is interacting with you. I don't want anyone to hesitate to contact me.
I also want to ask you for post ideas. What do you want to know more about? These can be practical things like how to build a transitional wardrobe, more abstract topics related to style, or some burning question you have about me personally. You can contact me anonymously in the combox, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And finally, if you like what you see here, please share it. The bigger the community, the richer the dialogue!
Thank you again for reading!
