Taking the pressure off myself to write on Bullfrogs and Bulldogs was a great decision. Now, I come back not because I feel like I have to but because I really want to. My heart and soul long to share what’s been going on and I’m finally getting back into some DIY project that I am proud to share
When I decided to go back to school last February, I felt like I had to completely drop everything else in my life and just dive into my Nutrition + Wellness Coaching practice. However, I wasn’t practicing what I preach. Not in the slightest bit and was quickly becoming unhappy and felt like something was missing.
One of the things I gave up was working on projects around the house. Even small ones. On our most recent trip to India, Cambodia and Thailand, I got pretty sick and had a lot of time to sit around and think about what I wanted in my life and what I felt was currently missing. What I realized was that when I’m not getting my creative juices flowing, everything else in my life feels stagnate. I’m a creative person and I need to feed that part of myself in order to feel totally fulfilled. This is something I teach my clients.
So much has changed in the (almost) three years that I have had this blog. When I started it I had just moved down to Oregon from Seattle and it was an outlet for me, a way to push myself into this new way of life. Now, things have grown, in many ways.
Our family business, a winery and vineyard called Omero Cellars is picking up steam and my hubs is busier then he ever has been. I started Savoury Soul Wellness, a Nutrition and Wellness Coaching practice and starting your own business is a lot of work. It’s totally worth it but everything, right now, is on me. I teach more throughout the community and friendships have been formed and I feel so much more apart of this community of ours but I still want to dive in deeper and that is what I am doing.
I’ll be sharing more here because that is something I’ve been missing. I’m going to dive back into projects and will be sharing more of that as well. My recipes, if you love those, are going to only be shared on my other blog and coaching website, Savoury Soul Wellness.
Something else that has changed is my style. What I leaned towards before, more of a vintage country no longer gets me excited and what I am loving is more mid-century charm. It should be interesting as I try to incorporate more of that into what we have.
Back in December we had a major water leak in our kitchen which has allowed us to remodel parts, changing our countertops, backsplash and paint color. It’s feeling more like us. I am really excited to finish incorporating a few more things and will be happy to show it to you in a few weeks (waiting on some prints to come). Then I think I am going to start on our main floor bathroom and give it a major facelift as it is still living in the 1980′s.
Oh, and I haven’t shared one of the most exciting things! We have welcomed a new family member. Please give a warm welcome to Bernard, or Bernie as I call him.
If you read my last post from back in November we were having some major Coyote issue and so I got Bernie because they are great at protecting flocks of sheep. I’ll share that story soon.
Anyway, it feels great to be back. I’ve missed being here.
