From Defying Gravity to Our Beautiful Mess

I'm sure some of you have noticed by now that the title of the blog has gone from Defying Gravity to Our Beautiful Mess. It's not that Our Beautiful Mess came from no where. For a long time it was the tagline of the blog. One that I adopted a few years ago when I was looking for a way to define what this was. But several years have passed since I started this blog - almost 6 actually - and I have made the decision to drop Defying Gravity as the title of the blog and move to Our Beautiful Mess. 

I have many reasons why Defying Gravity holds a special place in my heart and in a post I talked about why I chose that as a name in the first place. (You can read about here.) But I am long removed from that part of my life. The truth is my life is closer to being a beautiful mess than defying gravity. Although that sounds odd, it isn't a bad thing. It just means my life is moving forward and I'm not that 19 year old trying to find her place in life with her anthem being 'Defying Gravity.' My life is a beautiful mess, full of hugs, kisses, love, laughter, messes, tantrums, games. 

So the time has come for the change. It's one I'm excited about. It's a change in a time when I desperately need one. It's a change that I have actually been putting off for some time but finally I felt like the time was right. 

I won't lie, the timing does have something to do with the opening of the store. But that's the business side of it - branding. One unit together. All that. But mostly this was a decision I was toying with for some time. 

I'm happy about the move and the next steps for this blog (and the shop). There is still a lot ahead for both the blog and the store. I can't thank you all enough for sticking with me and being my faithful readers and supporters. 

Comment below: What would you like to see more of here on the blog (kid related posts, Every Day Conversations, house related, cooking, etc)? Also let me know what you would love to see in the store.

xo, B
