I’m Alyssa. I’ve started a blog at least 10 times over the last 10 years. I always decide after a few weeks that I don’t like the focus of the blog, the content, the domain/host, the randomness, the consistency, or the time commitment of posting. I always feel like I’m not living up to some kind of (warped) standard of what a blog should be.
Each time I end up writing for others, instead of for myself. This time I’m writing for me. This blog is for thoughts, photos, goals, poetry/lyrics, good days, bad days, and everything between. This blog is to captivate my mind and deepen my creativity. This blog is for self-encouragement, self-love, and self-accountability.
My husband is Chad and among many of the wonderful characteristics he has/embodies, he is loving and supportive. Chad’s always in my corner, no matter what. He has supported a huge career change (from corporate America to worship leader/ministry). New ways of doing finances/financial goals/how we spend (and don’t spend) our money. Ridiculously expensive appointments.
Chad and I have been trying to conceive for a year. Much of this blog will be about that journey. I’m laying it all out there so if you’re not interested in reading about my weird cycles and invasive ultrasounds.. this might not be the place for you. 🙂
If you’re reading this you’re probably new to this space and checking it out. Or you’re here for the 100th time and I want to thank you for following alongside during this journey. Either way, I’m glad you’re here and I hope my words speak to you in any number of ways. Welcome to my journey and my heart.
