A New Start

If you know me and/or have been following Seeker of Happiness on Etsy, you know that I have kind of been all over the place. Honestly, I never expected our little business to be as steadily successful as it has been so I wasn't quite sure how to move forward. 

I am so excited to be launching this new website where we can have our own shop independent from Etsy and where I can continue to keep up my blog. Keeping my business separate from my blog and my social media was difficult since I put so much of myself into our products so merging the two seemed to be the next natural step. 

I am beyond grateful for the friends we have made who care enough to check up on our family and for the customers who connect with us before/after/whether or not a transaction has been made! 

All that said, this is all new for me. I had been struggling to keep up my blog as of late for a few reasons, not the least of which being that it just wasn't an inspiring place anymore. I was bored. I was bored with my outline, my pictures, my stories. I didn't know where I wanted to go but I knew I wanted to somewhere. 

We decided to take a huge step and physically move forward by moving to Colorado Springs, Colorado. For some reason, this move has been beyond liberating and I feel like I have a whole new outlook. I know exactly what I want out of this space and hope that together, dear reader, we can create it. 

I want this to be a place where we can both find a little happiness. I want to introduce you to inspiring people. I want to have discussions that are moving and constructive. I want to show you funny videos. I want to share products that make my life happier. I want to interview you and learn what makes you the happiest. I want to keep it real, because heaven knows that it would be impossible to talk about joy and happiness without with talking about pain and shame. 

Perhaps I'm over reaching? Perhaps I'm just some stay at home mom hawking tote bags.  

I'm okay with that.

I'm always okay with trying my best to seek more happiness. 

So welcome! I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to introduce yourself in the comments :)
