I love blogs. I love wedding blogs and becoming inspired for the one special day every little girl looks forward to. I love lifestyle blogs filled with happy families and fun adventures that fill me with joy. I love style blogs and seeing how different people express themselves through fashion. I love food blogs because I mean, who does not love food?!
So, I thought, why not start a blog of my own? And now, I’m doing just that.
Once I decided to start a blog of my own, I was faced with lots of questions that I didn’t have answers to. What type of blog did I want to create? What did I want the design of it to be? What would I write about? What was I going to name it?
Well, one night my sister, Emily, brought up a story from a few years back. And the story goes like this…
When I was about 10 years old, Emily and I decided to go out to breakfast one morning. She threw some clothes on and was ready, waiting for me downstairs within minutes. I, on the other hand, was rummedging through my jewelry box to find the perfect accessory to “tie my outfit together”. Unfortunately, I was not having any luck.
Emily became increasingly impatient. She yelled up the stairs at me to hurry up. I told her I could not leave the house until I found something to “tie my outfit together”. It was important to me. But… Emily was hungry. And therefore, angry (or as she calls it..”hangry”). So, we ended up fighting over how she thought I already looked cute and did not need anything else to complete my outfit. But, I assured her I did.
I, eventually, completely changed my outfit into one I was satisfied with and we went to breakfast. By the time we arrived at the restaurant, she was over the fact that I took forever deciding what to wear, and we were able to enjoy a delicious breakfast of Eggs Benedict and French Toast, just the two of us.
In this seemingly insignificant story, I found the answer to all of my questions concerning my blog. This story is about family (my sister and I), fashion (my struggle to find the perfect accessory to complete my outfit), and food (the Eggs Benedict and French Toast).
So, I decided my blog would be the kitchen sink type, meaning it won’t be subjected to only fashion or only food. Instead, it will be about all of the different aspects of my life that bring me joy. So here’s to celebrating just that!
Family, fashion, food and everything in between…It All “Ties Together”!
