New Year, New Me, New Space
Updated: May 25, 2020
Hello my lovelies! It's been such a long time since I sat in front of my computer with the full intention of writing, and I've missed it! The last 3 years have found me in a bit of a creative rut which left my former blog severely neglected, so I shut it down and my domain has been collecting dust ever since. In 2019 I toyed around with the idea of starting again, but couldn't find the motivation or spare time, so it didn't happen.
For the last few months I've been researching the best place for me to host a new blog, and I've done a few trial runs on some of those platforms. Most of them left me feeling overwhelmed, which I've learned isn't the state I need to be in in order to be my most creative. I finally found myself at Wix, and thanks to a promotion, I have a premium site for half the cost for 2 years. It was a deal I couldn't pass it up. Plus Wix makes the process of setting up your site and/or blog super simple, the interface is very intuitive, and they basically step you through each stage, even the process of connecting your domain is pleasant. Yeah that's right, I said pleasant.
So, I figured what better (and let's face it, most cliché) time to start anew than in the new year? This new year is even more special because it also rings in a new decade, and I don't know about you, but I am quite happy to be leaving the first half of those 10 years behind and looking forward to making the most of my future. It really does feel like an exciting time to be a part of this great big world, doesn't it?
Brandon and I have some challenges and adventures ahead of us this year, some are out of our control while others as self imposed, but if life didn't give us challenges how would we ever grow? We are embracing those that life has thrown our way, while adding some of our own, and inviting you to experience the journey with us. I hope you'll pull up a seat (subscribe!), grab some chocolate & wine, and enjoy the experience.
Sneak peak of things to come...
I'll be writing about travel, food & drink, photography, and life in general. I have a few regular topics lined up such as LCBO Wines for $10 & Under (yep, Brandon is struggling with this challenge!) , Frugal Shopping (a challenge to lower our grocery bill), The Responsible Tourist (self explanatory), as well as travel guides. The blog will of course be the hub for which everything else connects, but there is the possibility of a Youtube Channel, Podcasts (because Wix supports those too!) and of course you'll always see us on Instagram & Twitter.
In conclusion, Brandon and I would love to wish you and yours a Happy New Year. Let's make 2020 our best year yet and experience life in a kind, compassionate, and caring manner.
P.S. keep your eyes glued to my Instagram for the upcoming haircut results! I'm not gonna lie... I'm nervous! #NewYearNewHair
