Introducing...My Newly Designed Website!

I am super excited to announce that my new & improved, re-designed website is finally live! Ahhh!

This site has gone through several iterations since it’s birth in 2010 and last year I found myself uninspired to share my thoughts with the world. Like, really uninspired.

Let's just say that in 2016 I published a whopping...wait for it...two blog posts. TWO! (Click here to see for yourself)

I realized that my lack of inspiration stemmed from a lack of excitement with my website.

There wasn't anything wrong with my site but the thought of spending any time on it made me cringe because it didn't feel like "me" anymore. I no longer felt connected and aligned with it.

So in Oct 2016, I decided it was time for a makeover. 

Here's the "before":

Over the course of these last few months, I spent much of my free time revamping everything myself which I found to be an incredibly meditative process.

I redesigned all of the graphics, removed content that was no longer relevant, and revisited the hundreds of posts I had written throughout the years.

I was almost ready to make it live MONTHS ago, but then perfectionism got a hold of me and I found myself adding pages, deleting paragraphs, and obsessing over every detail because I had to make sure everything was "just right" before sending it out into the world. 

Then I read Big Magic (or listened to, rather - been on a hardcore audiobook kick lately and this was one of my favorites…seriously, check it out) and when Elizabeth Gilbert said that “done is better than good” it felt like she was speaking directly to me.

I realized that if I waited until everything on my website was perfect before making it live, it would never go live and that wouldn’t benefit anyone.

So WELCOME to my “done is better than good” newly designed website! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it.

Take a look around and if you don’t know where to begin, start here for how this site came to be, click here for a little more about me, or if you’re hungry, pick a recipe that speaks to you and make it.

Thanks for stopping by!

p.s. In its current state, my site still has broken links, graphics that need to be redesigned, and posts that aren’t tagged or categorized correctly. In the spirit of embracing imperfection, I am leaving them there for now and am slowly working on fixing them but feel free to contact me if you find some glaring issue on my site that warrants immediate attention so I can address it sooner :) Thanks!
