Happy One Year of Blogging!

This month marks ONE YEAR of me getting serious about this blogging thing. It marks one year of learning, growing, and challenging myself week after week. It hasn’t been easy but it has been such a fun journey! I am SO excited for the year ahead and I feel like I have a really clear vision of what I want this little corner of the internet to be. I can’t wait to share it with you soon and let it all unfold.

I love to take walks down memory lane, so here we go!

TOP 5 BLOG POSTS THIS YEAR

1 // Inside the Heart of a Pastor’s Wife // This post is my favorite post to date. I shared my heart, as well as many others, for pastor’s wives. It’s a really special post to me!

2 // We survived the first month! // This is the post that started it all! I shared what had been on my heart after one month of marriage and it’s crazy reading it today, over a year and a month later!

3 // Being Engaged: 5 Things You Should Know // This post is just highlighting some things I learned and tips I have for anyone who is engaged or planning to be engaged soon. It really focuses on how to keep your engagement marriage minded.

4 // White as Snow // This post was one that I was scared to post. It sat in my drafts for over a month because it is so vulnerable.

5 // Changing with the Seasons // This is very timely due to our current circumstances of change and transition and the new season of life we’re in. This post is all about how in order to grow and be who we are called to be, we must be willing to experience each season, just like leaves and plants.


MILESTONE MOMENTS

1 // Guest Blogger on The Bud Co where I share my own personal testimony for the FIRST TIME on the internet! // A Story of Healing

2 // I partnered with brands like Target, JessaKae, and Beating 50 Percent. You can shop my links here and I will get a percentage of the proceeds.

3 // I created a Love Month Challenge for the month of February. It was all focused on loving people including yourself.


WHAT TO EXPECT THIS NEXT YEAR

MORE CONTENT // I have been in a bit of a funk when it comes to content recently with all of the transitions, going through a hard season, and being so busy with work. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve taken time to sit down and write out my ideas for content and dream about the future of the blog. I am honestly so motivated and excited for this next year of creating, being transparent, and growing alongside you guys! You can expect more content and better content as we enter into the rest of 2018 and the beginning of 2019.

MORE BRAD // We have been talking about this a lot lately and we are hoping to bring some Brad content to the blog soon! That is the ONE thing everyone asked for in my recent Instagram stories about what you want to see more of on the blog. If there is anything specific you’d like him to cover – make sure you include it in the survey below!

VIP CONTENT FOR EMAIL SUBSCRIBERS // I have not been utilizing my email subscribers and you deserve something special and it’s coming! Be on the lookout over the next few weeks for all the details and content created specifically for you.

MORE HOME POSTS // As many of you know, we are going to be moving soon (hopefully like within the next few weeks if everything goes as planned. We put in our application for our DREAM HOME!) So, there will be lots of content regarding leasing out our home, renting a home ourselves, and just all the decor posts in the world because the house we applied for is BEAUTIFUL!

MORE PARTNERSHIPS! // I am so excited about this one and can’t wait to share with you some of my new partners!

There is more that I will be unfolding in the future, but GET EXCITED! But before you leave, please fill out this readers survey. This will help me create content that YOU actually want to see and it helps me create content FOR YOU! It’ll only take a couple of minutes and it is all anonymous!

    Congratulations on one year of blogging! I’ll definitely have to go back and read your posts on engagement and marriage, as they are both great topics to read about. Sounds like you have heaps of fun things coming up too! Hope your next year is just as fun as this one ☺️
