This is a little bit of a bittersweet day for me.
Almost six years ago I started a little blog called The Eyes of a Boy. I wrote about all of the things I did with my son, chronicled stories about babyloss and our stillborn son, Max. I wrote about the food we ate, the things we did, and just blogged as I saw fit.
Then we had another little boy, and now another. All the while, this little blog has turned into my full time job. I am so extremely thankful to be able to work from home, and do what I love, all while raising my three little boys. So, thank YOU for being a part of my journey.
I’ve known for quite some time that I wanted to rebrand my website. The Eyes of a Boy is so near and dear to my heart, but it didn’t fit this platform anymore, in my opinion.
I’ve been brainstorming names for a while. Nothing seemed to fit. I talked a lot about it with my friend Carrie, who rebranded her blog from “Huppie Mama” to Our Potluck Family. She’s known me for a lot of years (aka – I trust her thoughts!), and after bouncing TONS of ideas off of her, she gave me some advice.
She wrote, “I think you need something that captures the fact that you picked beautiful antique light fixtures to make your house beautiful, and your crazy boys broke one of them, and it made you angry – but you absolutely love them so much that it was just something that happened and you moved forward”
She said when she heard Wildly Charmed she pictured “three boys jumping on a nice white sofa with dirty feet” and that’s exactly what I wanted to capture. The fact that my life is crazy, but still beautiful. The fact that I love antiques and vintage things, I love photos, I love preserving memories, I like to tell stories, I love my boys, we are crazy, we are loud, we are a funny circus of people….and so Wildly Charmed was born!
I hope you’ll join me as I continue to share my life and our Wildly Charmed adventures with you. Thank you for reading, and making this journey and transformation possible.
