Hello again friends! How do you like the new place?!
I’m still working out some of the kinks; so if you notice any glaring errors… let me know!
As some of you know, I had another baby in November. Baby Grey has brought about many changes for me but one of them was rendering the name of my old blog inappropriate as I cannot only include 2 out of 3 children in my blog name! From J to Z will always hold a special place in my bloggy heart but it was time to move on. As this space has grown I think that the name was just confusing to anyone who didn’t know me personally. (Don’t worry, I consulted Jace and Zoey on the matter and they say it’s cool.) 😉
Therefore I would like to introduce all of you to Motherhood and Confetti. I felt that the new name was way more relevant to my blog topic; as I mostly blog about things relating to mom life and celebrating life…well, in spite of mom life. It’s a balancing act most moms find themselves performing whether they mean to or not!
So what can you expect from Motherhood + Confetti?
New year, new city, new baby, …same old me.
I still drink too much coffee, spend too much money at Target, and include too many run on sentences in my blog posts. But if I’m being honest… I think in blog posts and run on sentences. And I exist somewhere between a Pinterest project and 3 unfolded baskets of clean laundry.
I’ll continue to blog about my busy life as a mom of 3. But I’ll talk about the other things I love and enjoy as well… because moms are allowed to have interests outside of playing Mommy. I’ll probably talk a lot about moving to Denver… and the glorious-ness that is changing seasons (what what!!) Although, as I write this it is below zero outside. Probably a normal winter occurrence when I grew up outside of Chicago…but definitely NOT the norm in southwest Florida.
I’ll continue to be vain and talk about my personal style and my makeup. Because like it or not…these things make me feel creative and good. I rarely drink and I don’t smoke but these things are my vice. I’d like to think that my interests are cheaper too but have you seen the price tags in Sephora?
This space will still be a virtual photo dump in regards to documenting the lives of my children. No surprise there. I mean, have you seen them?! They’re gorgeous; if I do say so myself.
I will still blog a little bit about Colorado, our new home, and home decor stuff (because we just moved DUH!) but also because who doesn’t love home decor? Um, practically no one. I love decorating my kids’ rooms. And let’s be real…finding home decor that is pretty, affordable, functional, and that can survive 3 kids is a challenge! But a fun one… usually. 😉
I’ll still blog about my travels. Because it is hands down one of my favorite ways to enjoy this crazy life of mine. Be it across the United States or the worlds abroad, with the kiddos or just me and the hubby; I love nothing more than a jam-packed suitcase and an atmosphere ripe with new experiences to be had.
And because I have a lot to say… I will also be starting an email list! It’s an idea I’ve pondered for some time. But I’ve decided that I’ll just be jumping in with both feet here. Why not?!
I hope that you will continue to follow along with my adventures. Writing them for you is truly a hobby that I enjoy! Here’s to new beginnings + Happy 2017!
