I’m moving on. For the past (almost year) and previous years of blogging attempts, this has been home. This is where it all began and where I found my passion, drive and hope for blogging and writing. It’s been small and wonderful. However, my blissful adventure, is over… say hello to Coffee Beans & Bliss.
What is Happening Right Now?
I’m not done blogging, but I’ve spent the past month settling into a new home. I discovered I love writing and blogging. I’ve started interacting and talking to some pretty fantastic people and growing as a person.
I started this blog wanting to push myself to learn more and experience new things. I wanted to crawl out of my comfort zone. I wanted something new and exciting to push me beyond who I am. I wanted to find who I am for that matter… and for the most part, I’m heading in the right direction.
I also wanted to inspire people. I want to reach out to others, anybody who may be stuck in ways I am or have been. People who are searching for their calling, who want to try and find new parts of life to touch and reach around in. People who may be unsure right now, but know there is something whispering, and maybe that same thing has been whispering to me as well. (Or you like to cook, and I’ve made some pretty fab things, whichever)
What wasn’t right, was the name of this blog and the limits it set me in. It didn’t resonate with me. My word for 28 (which isn’t until May) I decided was metamorphosis. I need change, I need to rebuild and revamp a lot of aspects of my life.
This started with me personally. I journeyed into mindfulness and minimalist lifestyles. I wouldn’t say I’ve settled in just yet, but I’m getting there. The adventure has just begun. I want to grow as a person and find a blissful space of my own in this world. That’s what I desire to create.
After that I made a change and rebranded my photography business. It’s still a work in progress as I hammer out the details there, but while doing that I wanted to relaunch my blog… “officially”. With an idea of where I was going and what I was doing. That’s where I decided to change it up. A new platform, a new home, an official home.
Most posts are over there as well. And this site will continue to be here for a while longer, I can’t bring myself to just pull it down quite yet. Maybe I never will. The future is fickle.
So, Coffee Beans and Bliss, huh?
Yes! Coffee Beans & Bliss.
I am driven primarily on day dreams and coffee, and of course, Bliss is not only a place I grew up, but a destination I wish to achieve. So, there’s that.
What Can You Expect Here?
Coffee Beans & Bliss will be much like this blog is, except more. I still declare it to be “lifestyle”, as that is what it will be about. Life, adventure, learning, parenting, travel, food & diy all thrown in. It will also be about a huge moment in life that is upon my family, which I CANNOT wait to share the details of… but in fear of jinxing it, we’ll all have to wait *sigh*. Here’s a broad overview of what you can expect.
- Lifestyle: mindfulness, minimalism, health and (probably not much) fitness.
- The Art of Motherhood: parenting, family, things I’ve learned and what we do.
- Home: gardening, renovations, how to make a house a home.
- Travel & Adventure: we have a big journey coming up, but also how to have adventures at home, traveling and all those helpful things.
- Bullet Journal: planning, ideas, how to personalize it to fit you.
- Artwork: mostly photography, but tips, tutorials and other works.
- In the Kitchen: all the yummy foods
- DIY: crafts, projects & other such things.
- All the other bits and pieces that’ll fit in here and there.
Are You In?
I hope to see you all there, even if just to stop by and see what’s going on! I am super excited and quite a bit nervous about where this journey will lead, but I know it’s where my heart is taking me. I cannot wait to see how it all unfolds and what the fickle future holds! I’d love to hear from you and see you soon!
