I can’t even begin to put into words how thankful we are to have Mazy in our lives! If the number of pictures I share on a weekly basis doesn’t give it away, well, let my words then be a tell-tale of how much we love our little Mazy Grace!
Before God showed His plan for us with regards to kids, I especially wondered how God would use me, if He was not calling me to be an earthly mother. When we moved to Minnesota, I in a way, went through an identity crisis. We had just left a pretty difficult situation behind, and here we were, in a new state, with a new start. That meant new opportunities and almost a starting-over process.
Minnesota in March is pretty chilly, so I found myself at home. Often. Wondering how to fill my time. I decided to foster a dream of mine, which was to start an organizing blog. At the time, I had our personal blog, but I found myself being even more intrigued with organizing and how to live life with less.
That is when I decided to start my own small business with a blog called Organizing Life With Less. I have absolutely LOVED being an organizing blogger and have learned more than I ever imagined, met some incredible people, and realized that in creating this blog, I became even more content. I discovered the type of life I really wanted to live – a life with less.
Over the past 2 years, I have spent countless hours developing Organizing Life With Less and when I look back, I can’t believe that dream actually came true! It took a lot of hard work, but again, it has been completely worth it and I am a different person (for the good) because of it.
Well, now I have entered a new chapter in my life! Being a mother to our absolutely beautiful daughter (okay, maybe I am a little biased). Since having her, I have realized my time looks very different, and I want it to stay that way. I do not have the time to keep up the organizing blog like I need to, and I am okay with that. I just didn’t want to give up all the hard work I put into it. All of those posts! All of those pictures! So, I have decided to combine the blogs and just write for our personal blog, but throw in some organizing, recipes, and living with less ideas when they come to mind.
I have decided to stop blogging for Organizing Life With Less, but all of those posts are now linked into this personal blog! It is a new chapter that I am excited to embark on – and that is living life with less – living with less commitments, so that I can be the mother I want to be!
I have enjoyed the past few years blogging for Organizing Life With Less, but it is also time to close this chapter too. So thank you for being a faithful reader and supporter if you have! I have loved all of the challenges, giveaways, guest posts, and opportunities that OLWL has created, but it is now time to enjoy even MORE time with our baby girl!
So stay tuned…
This blog will look a little different as I now try to combine both blogs the best I can! So bear with me as it might look a little odd at times, but I hope to get it together soon!
