I can’t believe it has been a year and 4 months since my last good guide. When I started my blog back in the fall of 2020, this was my favorite segment to share every week. The art of blogging has my heart & still does! I knew in some capacity, big or small, writing and sharing my life through my words was a calling I couldn’t just put up on a shelf. Even though I still feel soooo lost with the in’s and out’s of blogging- it hasn’t kept me from continuing to learn and grow.
This “Fall Friday” series, always felt like home to me. I began to post and share recipes, DIY updates, things that sparked joy, my current favorites, wants or things I wanted to try. Blogging is both fun yet time consuming, exciting yet terrifying, easy yet always challenging me to places I’ve never been.
Flash forward to the beginning of 2022 & I began to feel a shift. Not to walk away, but to reevaluate where I put my time and effort. Blogging is such an outlet for my soul, and I knew I needed to invest in myself and this vision, from a professional standpoint, which ultimately led me to Tonic and the evolution of my website and newsletter. I know that one of the best investments I can make, both professionally and personally, will always be in who I am in the present and who I am wanting to become. Tonic helped me to align my goals professionally all while allowing me to see an incredible vision for what was ahead. I took some time off most of 2022 but my goals for this year are equally frightening and absolutely exciting, which circles back to why ‘The Friday Five: Good Guide’ will be coming back. It was something I always looked forward too and something I haven’t stopped thinking about!!
You can expect The Good Guide bi-weekly and my newsletter on the adjacent weeks. I am so ready to share, spread and include all the good I can straight into your heart! I think that’s enough rambling for today. I have been so excited to get into today’s favorites, so let’s do it! I hope you enjoy and have the BEST Friday!
