It’s been awhile since I last wrote anything on the blog. Not because I haven’t wanted to, but because I’ve been ridiculously busy with the other blogs I run as well as, you know, the little people I take care of. It’s also not because I haven’t had anything to say – because I always have things to say (ask my husband). I’ve composed entire posts in my head and then just not taken the time to sit down and type them all out. This year has been a proverbial windy road.
Why am I telling you this? Because as I look back on 2016, aka “the year that just wouldn’t die”, there were so many things that I learned about myself as a person that I can directly attribute to the philosophy of Effervescence Media, living la vie en luxe. Things which didn’t quite fit in on a Duchess of Cambridge blog and that I really want to share. Things I’ve learned about cooking, cleaning (or lack thereof), fashion, people… That need a voice. And as I read back on the archives of even this blog alone, I’m astonished by how much I have grown looking back on it all. I remember things I had otherwise relegated to the “completed” list, like turning my Pinterest boards into a coffee table book. Or the sappy note I wrote about having a 4 year old.
So as I prioritize what will be in my 2017, aka “the year of the best me”, one of the things that will rise to the top of that list is having an outlet to both share and document things that are going on in my life. Things I’ve learned or figured out that I want to share. Things that I’m doing that I’m passionate about. Things that I cooked
that wound up being thrown out. I am a huge believer in the la vie en luxe philosophy and I want to share how I have incorporated it into my work, my family and my life. I want to set a great example for my kids and how they should live their lives. Warning: I’m going to get corny here – Lives of positivity, quality and meaningful relationships. Lives full of laughter. Lives full of love.
I’ll be back with a vengeance in 2017. Because I’m not going to sit around and wait for opportunities to come to me, I’m going to go out and get them. Oh, and Fuck You 2016. It needed to be said.
