Hello, It's Me.

It's been quite a while since I made a regular appearance around here.

19 months to be exact.

I'll be honest. When Finn came into our lives, it amazed me how quickly the days passed. Before I knew it he was crawling (kid bypassed my beloved "sitting before crawling" phase), then walking, and basically leaving a trail of destruction wherever his sweet soul goes.

He has been the biggest joy and the brightest light in, at times, the most difficult and transitional year.

Age three (and four at times) rocked us to our core. I honestly struggled to stay positive at times, and dang I am just tired. I mean what mom isn't?! But there has also been an incredible amount of beauty, pride in the strides Rowan has made, and so many sweet, amazing moments with our boys.

This year I felt like I had to do so many things just to keep up, taking precious time away from loving on my boys. I was working full time, learning to parent two kids, and working almost full time with my photography.

Anyway... what I'm getting to and failing at is this:

I'm back because I love this space. It may not be as often as I want, but I'm stoked about it.

BUT, a few caveats.

If you see a flatlay from me its because it took me under approximately 2 minutes to pull together.

If I work with a brand it's because I love it and highly recommend it (though that's nothing new- I've always done this!).

If I share an inspiration board, its because I caught up on client work, was feeling particularly adventurous, and/or was hopped up on caffeine while the rest of the house sleeps. I'm also a very visual person so if I'm redoing the decor in a room, those inspiration boards help me SO much and its just a bonus that I can share them!

If I share a photo of my house that looks clean, please know that steps away from that spot there are mountains of clothes that need folded, kids toys shoved between couch cushions that I won't find until weeks later, and a nice coat of dust combined with crumbs on most of our floors.

I no longer care about numbers. I'm a "microinfluencer" and there are so many advantages to that, this isn't my full time job or income source, and my page views and "likes" do not define my worth.

And I'm not saying I'll be perfect and blog every day, but I feel like I have a vision for this space in this new phase of life.

And that starts with rebranding.

As much as we love our Ruby girl, life is drastically different than when I started this blog and I want it to reflect that.

SO STAY TUNED! And thank you for following along, and/or making it to this point in this post.
