Okay so I'm not referring to "that type of work", but I have changed things up around here in this space.
For one thing I have changed the name/title/address, whateves you call it of my blog. Honestly, when I started blogging I just picked some title at random without putting much thought into a name that really reflects me. So after a skype date session with Jenna aka blogging school, I decided to really switch everything up with a new name, design to reflect it, and TONS of ideas to really help me write better and more intentionally. I decided on 'a modern grace' because growing up my favorite old movie actress and style icon was Grace Kelly. I loved her movies (Rear Window is still my favorite!) and read anything I could get my hands on about her life. This title also reflects my love for things like design/clothing/home decor that I like to call "classy elegance"; but more importantly it reflects my desire to become the woman/wife/sister/friend God wants me to be. Striving to do this with with a huge dose of grace, class, and at times, a little bit of sass ;-)
It's been a good long time since I have posted here regularly. The last month has been crazy busy! My grandpa, Papa died, there have been 2 weekend long retreats in youth ministry land, Jim and I have been busy doing some intensive marriage enrichment, and oh yeah, that 10 page biblical exegesis paper on a few verses of Genesis didn't help much either.
I'm looking forward to writing much more frequently, but also being much more intentional about what/why I write. The last month away has been good to re-evaluate why exactly do I blog and how I can use this space to be honest, real, and just more of who I am; instead of trying to be like other bloggers or comparing myself to others.
Like all other people who have a blog, at the end of the day, we are all just people behind a screen, and that's been a good reminder for me over these past weeks to think about as I really think about why I blog.
I'm looking forward to this fresh start:)
