Happy New Year friends! This is my first blog post of 2020. I honestly have wrestled a lot with if I should keep blogging or not, sometimes buying into the lie that “no one reads blogs anymore” or that “no one cares what I have to say.” But you know what? I have been blogging since high school (literally), so almost 10 years! It is one of the few things that I love so much that I’ll probably always keep doing it, simply because I love it. And if others want to read along, and join me on my blogging journey, then great! I hope you’ll find this space helpful + inspiring. The value of our impact should never be determined by numbers alone. The people who have made the most significant impact in my life the past year don’t have these Oprah Winfrey sized followings. They are regular folks, just like me, who showed up day in and day out to help me and love me well. So may we not be discouraged from doing the work simply because our numbers may be small in comparison to someone else’s.
I always want to act intentionally and mindfully, so of course my blogging is no different. While this space is used to reflect all kinds of whims I follow and things I love, I wanted to give you a sneak peak of what you can expect to read about here this year. For one, my love for all things sustainable has only grown stronger, so expect to see a lot more content on all things sustainable (especially sustainable style + interiors). As most of you know too, I started using Young Living Essential oils last September. They have been such a huge blessing to me and my family. I am crazy about these products and I want to share the ways we are using these little bottles of magic in our every day lives. Also, as I enter into what I consider “insanely large family” territory, I want to share more of what our lives look like from day to day and how we manage kids + work while still making time for creative pursuits. Of course, I will still be blogging my outfits and style tips because well, that’s what I’ve been blogging about since day one!
Going into the new year, is there anything particular that you would love to see more of here at Life with Lizzy? I would love to hear from you. Also, A huge thanks to everyone who has read and subscribed to my little corner of the internet. This space brings me so much joy and I hope it will for you too. Thanks for sticking around and hope to see a lot more of you in 2020!
