Three years, two kids and one blog revamp later, now I’m back and all revved up to get posting again! Well slightly more sleep deprived, but raring to go none the less.
Thank you coffee – a mom’s best friend.
There have been a whole lot of changes to the blog that I’m super excited to share with you, so let’s catch up and I’ll tell you all about what I’ve been up to…
Probably the biggest “change” is that I’m now a proud mom to two little people. My oldest, Harrison (although we call him Harry, aka Captain Chaos) lights up our lives like we could never have imagined! He brings a whole new level of enthusiasm, curiosity and zest for life that has really filled me with a new kind of energy to explore this beautiful world we live in. My youngest, our sweet little hairy fairy Scarlett is almost a year old, it felt like we only arrived home from the hospital with her yesterday, it’s scary how fast it flies by. Possibly the happiest baby in the universe, she brings so much joy and love that I try and cherish every moment as you can almost hear them growing it happens so quickly! So it was for this reason I let the blog take a back seat as I really wanted to fully submerge myself in motherhood for as long as I could. But now I’m just about bulging at the seams with ideas and things I want to share with you, so it’s time to get blogging again.
The blog has a sparkly fresh new look and feel thanks to the lovely @sarahjagerdesign. A gazillion Pinterest boards and multiple scatty 3am emails later she miraculously managed to make sense of all my hair-brain ideas and requests and created the beautiful artwork and rebranding. She deserves a humongous slice of beany chocolate cake and a swimming pool sized cup of coffee!!
The categories have also evolved as I’ve been learning more and more, so have a snoop around the drop down menus to see what’s new. I’ve become really passionate (read: obsessive compulsive) about finding ways to green up our lifestyle as a family. Going above and beyond just the mandatory recycling and composting, I’m making a concerted effort to make eco-friendly changes and choices in every aspect of daily life as much as I can. The time is yesterday when we should all start doing our best to tread a little more softly on this earth, so I’m hoping to offer you lots of inspiration in this department!
There will still be recipes galore as nothing has changed in that department, I still LOVE eating good healthy food. In fact, I now have two mini-me’s that have inherited my appetite so there’s a whole lot of cooking and creating going on around here still. From family-friendly recipes to baby-led weaning tips and tricks to get these notoriously fussy toddlers gobbling up all things good for them.
I have only recently discovered the wonders of Instagram (yes, I’m a granny that way!) and the amazing community of like-minded people there are to meet out there in cyber space. So if we’re not yet Instagram buddies head on over to my Instagram account I’ll be teaming up with loads of inspiring foodies and eco-warriors and will be having a ton of giveaways to spread the love, so make sure we’re also friends on Facebook ,Twitter and Pinterest and be the first to know when there are goodies and discounts up for grabs. I’ll be sending out a monthly newsletter with all the up and coming news so you won’t miss a thing, so be sure to subscribe.
Anyway, enough about me! What have you guys been up to while I’ve been gone? I’d love to catch up so drop me a line, I’ll put the kettle on so long…
