Blogging with a purpose.

So obviously there are a tons of great blogs out there.
And I have noticed the ones I enjoy following the most are the ones that have a goal.
A purpose to their blog.

They know and realize they have the potential to impact and influence others.
They try to be wise with their words and use their blog for good.
I'm not saying this means they never have a moment of pure silliness.
I'm also not trying to imply that they are perfect and they get to look at the world 100% of the time through rose colored glasses.

On the contrary, many of them have real, honest, raw moments with their readers.
They let their hearts, scars, and battle wounds show.
They tell you about their insecurities, worries, fears, hopes, and dreams.
However, they also gently remind us that this is not all there is.

So I want to blog with a purpose.
I want to be open and honest with you all
but I want to choose to give life and even in the painfully rough moments.
I'm not saying there wont be moments where I blog about an awesome giveaway going on or show you silly pictures of my kids because well lets be honest who doesn't love an awesome giveaway and my kids are my world. If I didn't share these things with you I wouldn't be being completely real. You know its true!

But I want to share with you things that I've been learning or ways in which God is changing me.
I want to let you in on this crazy and amazing life He's blessed me with and for you to do the same back to me.


Hey everyone,
   Sorry its been so long since I've done any blogging.
Life has been rather crazy lately but that's not why I'm blogging right now.

You may or may not have noticed that my blog got a new look.
Thanks to my sweet husband for making my blog look much nicer as I start a new endeavor.
I know I have talked about opening an etsy shop on and off for a while now but its actually going to happen now. I don't have an official launch date yet but please don't worry, as soon as I pick one you'll be the first to know!

I'm currently working on ideas for the blog and the shop as well as working really hard to get things ready to be listed in the shop. (Oh you know on top of being pregnant and chasing around my 2 year old Monkey!)

With that being said though I am very curious as to what YOU would like to see in here and in the shop.
Ideas for blog posts are always welcome as well as any questions you may have for me. :)

I know this is really short but I just wanted to give you the heads up that we're going through lots of changes over here. I promise to start blogging on a more regular basis again and to update you frequently on how things are coming for the shop. :)

I'm off to work on some shop items.... currently making some cute little magnets.
Sneak peak on those soon.
