Hello lovely friends, it’s been quite a while since you last heard from me. I hope you’ve not forgotten all about me and my little blog? I sure haven’t forgotten about you. I had to
take a little break to put some things together.
While I was away, I did a lot of stuff and one of them was crocheting. I was surprised to see my new found hobby turn into a mini business. People who saw the stuff I knitted/crocheted liked it and surprisingly placed orders. So, I must confess, that was one of the things that kept me away from this blog.
Another thing that made me pause a little bit was that I needed to change the focus of this blog a little bit. I battled this for a long time. I kept running away from this topic for as long as I could.
Before I launched my blog, I asked a couple of close friends about the topic they felt I should blog about and the answer was always “Relationships”. I then asked my husband what he felt I was good at and would go on and on without getting tired, guess what he said? You got it right. “Relationships”.
Each time they mentioned the ‘R’ word, I avoided it and gave a hundred reasons why I didn’t think talking about relationships on my blog was a good idea. Deep inside me, I knew I loved the topic but I just didn’t want to talk about it probably because it’s a sensitive topic and it requires vulnerability sometimes.
I took out time, I thought, strategized, planned and finally decided to take the leap. Relationships are part of life and we all face challenges with one aspect of it or another. We all need that small talk from time to time and because of that, I’ve decided to make my blog about relationships, HOWEVER, I decided to narrow it down to marriage talk, family talk and I’m also going to be sharing about the home (decluttering, cleaning, organizing, decorating and other tips and tricks).
Don’t worry if you are not yet married, I promise you that you will find our small talks very useful and entertaining as well. The thing is, even married couples are individuals first and foremost before they are couples. So you see, this blog is actually for all of us because we are all individuals. It takes individuals to make a marriage.
That being said, thank you for taking out time to read this and I hope to find you sticking around.
