I feel like the first blog post is probably the hardest one, like the first date, the first day of school, the first time in the deep end of the pool. It’s all self-conscious and timid, because it’s new and we’re trying to get people to like us while also trying to look good in floaties and a nose clip. And that’s okay, because largely that’s what this blog will be about. We’ll be sharing about discovery and hospitality, faith and food, art and soul. We’re advocates for simplicity and good old fashioned life together, and we hope this will provide some encouragement to you as you pursue intentional living. I say “we” because this is a joint venture with my husband. He’s the art to my soul, the filter for everything I’ll be posting, and he’s the one who convinced me that I will not, in fact, be targeted by guys with nuclear weapons and sinister-looking mustaches or stalkers (with sinister-looking mustaches)immediately upon starting a blog.
