new home

I began blogging in 2005.  When I wrote my first post I had no idea the adventure it would take me on. The doors that would open, and the opportunities that would arise.  When I wrote that very first post, I just thought it was a neat way to pair writing with photography.

Here I am, eight years later.  Wow!  Eight years.  So much has happened in my life since that very first time I hit "publish".  It has been an incredible journey.  My blog has taught me so many things about myself.  It has pushed me to grow, to reach, to dream, and to chase after those dreams and fly.

It has connected me to many amazing individuals and introduced me to some of my very best friends.  It opened up opportunities to retreat in places I have always dreamed of visiting.  And to be seen, really seen and heard.

It has provided me a forum to use my voice when I was too timid and shy to speak words out loud.  My blog has always been there waiting for me, even when I neglected it.  It never once judged, or spoke harsh words back.  It simply soaked in whatever flowed out of my fingertips.

My blog saved my life in so many ways and it continues to push me to grow stronger each and every day.  I have loved my space and time spent here on blogger.  My safe house, my home away from home, my little corner of the world wide web.

I feel, however, that I have outgrown this space.  I need a little more room to stretch a little bit higher.  I need to be able to extend my arms out, create, dream, and be.  My creative life will always be a part of my journey.  It has taking me long to declare this, but it is true.  The path is extending and I need a little more space to lean into.  

So I am pulling together Giggling in the Rain & Love Notes and sharing all of me over on

This was a big decision for me.  I was torn between integrating them.  When I first started Love Notes it felt right for it to be separate.  But as time has passed I have learned how much Love Notes really is apart of me, and feels so strange to have it on a distance space in the web.  I am love notes, love notes is me.  As well as I am Giggling in the Rain, and Giggling in the Rain is me.

It feels right to merge them.  To claim them both and to sink deeper and deeper into my own life's manifesto of spreading unexpected joy, diving into the vulnerable pieces of life, and seeking out goodness in this world, as I treasure it with gratitude.  

I hope you will join me as I continue my journey.  I have so many ideas up my sleeve and I would just love for us to travel together.  It is always more fun when you travel with a friend.

Thank you for being a part of my story.  For showing up and reading.  I appreciate each and every one of you.
