OMG! I never thought I’d see the day where I would be posing for photos, wearing outfits, and posting them for the world to see. However, for the past few years, I’ve been following other bloggers and getting green with envy as they make a living doing just that. I’ve always figured, why not me? But never really had the guts to do it. I still don’t have the guts, actually. In fact I’ve seriously considered deleting all of these pictures and writing a post about anything else in the world. But then I’d still be the girl scrolling through Instagram, wishing I could do something that I don’t have the guts to do. So, I guess I’ll press publish…
So, why fashion blogging? I have no idea. I don’t consider myself ultra-fashionable or edgy. I don’t even consider myself photogenic. But I love photography, and I love blogging, and after a pep talk from David, I realized the only thing that’s stopping me from being a fashion blogger is me.
David dragged me out to take these photos. He told me that he knew what he was doing since fishermen have a good eye for photography… I thought it was a joke, until I started editing. In fact, I don’t even think the photos in this post really show off his skills, so I decided to start with these and leave the better ones for later.
You see, around the first of the year, David and I both discussed our goals for 2017. For both of us, many of our goals revolved around our careers – where we would like them to go and what we would like to be doing. I’m so fortunate to have a career job. It provides stability, a sense of purpose, and even some creativity sprinkled in. This blog, though, is something I have huge ideas for, and I know I’m totally in control of turning those ideas into realities.
Moving forward, I hope to continue to grow a blog around the posts I enjoy writing. I will continue to blog about Finn and about being a mother. I will also be blogging about things that inspire me and get my creative juices flowing. And, as a new addition, I’ll be sprinkling in some fashion/outfit posts because these things inspire me!
