Multiple times over the last few weeks I have thought to myself, "Lauren, why the heck have you not been blogging." I would come home with great intentions of doing the best blog post yet and time would get away from me. It seems as though, more often than not I am apologizing for the lack of posts and that is not a good thing. I don't want to let anyone down who has faith in my blog and I would love to reward those who faithfully follow with great reads and fun ideas to inspire you to try new things and get excited about life in general. Well I can't very well do that with out posting now can I?
A little update on my life might help align you with my whereabouts... as well as my blog's.
For the most part it is spring and that means activities galore. Winter, I would say is just the ideal time to blog because any free time someone has, is probably spent indoors, unless of course you are a Colorado skier or you live somewhere that winter doesn't mean unfriendly weather. What I am getting at is, any chance I have to be outside, I am. Back in the days when I had a super front porch I was able to do my Front Porch Diaires and part of me has thought about going back to that style. Short, sweet and a constant flow. I have a back porch and it has a great view. Why don't I just change it to Back Porch Diaries? New seasons of life, new titles of blogs.
Other than that, Arlo is getting huge. He is 5 1/2 months and 75 pounds. He is involved in many of our outdoor activities. We take him to the dog park often and on walks, always.
Our house is definitely a home. We host get togethers and we have movie night where we snuggle up, just the two of us and take it easy all night long. We still have some projects in store but we get caught up doing one small thing at a time and feeling a little uninspired. We just talked recently about making a list and doing a space at a time. We would write down the things we want to change or update. Find photos on blogs and Pinterest and magazines. Then go from there. Get it done and don't mess around.
Oh and then there is the career side of life. This is big news and I suppose most people close to me already know, but I am going to be starting my massage business in the next month or so. I went to school awhile ago for massage and things didn't pan out while I was in Springfield. I was frustrated and discouraged at first but now I am thankful because life would have taken a completely different path if I had succeeded in Springfield. The stars aligned and I am able to start taking clients for Massage out of my home, hopefully in May. I had to get my CPR and First Aid certification first and now onto the licensing procedure and all of the nitty gritty business stuff like coming up with a business name and finding someone to help design my cards. I am just so pumped about it all. Ryan and I have both been on this amazing journey as of lately, feeling inspired and pushing together to do what we have always wanted to and to live life with the greatest of intention. It is a hard but satisfying journey for now.
Hope this brings you up to speed and finds you well. Please have patience with me, as I might try some new styles of blogging.
Thank You friends.
