I started this blog last year when my husband was working out of state. I was left with our toddler alone in a big empty house for 2 months with no car. I desperately needed an outlet. Blogging has always been a dream of mine but it took that moment in my life to finally take the plunge. Although it's still a lifestyle blog it has evolved. I expected my main focus to be on mommy/family posts but instead it has lead me to being passionate about things I never was before like beauty and fashion trends; things I always have known or aspired to but never fully took pride in.
Now as a stay at home mom, childcare provider and aspiring Etsy shop owner, I find myself writing more on topics that keep me feeling like a woman and make me happy rather then just being a mom. Please don't get me wrong, being a mom is the best thing in this life but as I've said from the moment I found out I was pregnant- I just want to be a good example to my daughter . What kind of mother would I be if I don't learn to take care of myself and show Maggie how to do that.
So as before this blog will evolve but I'm proud of what I'm doing with it. This year I plan to do some new things with The Allyn Life, add to it and get adventurous or better yet, brave with my topics. I want to try new things and instead of saying "new me" I want to say "new possibilities". This life is truly what you create it to be and I plan on making 2017 awesome!
Thank you, as always, for sticking with my rants fumbles and sometimes tortuous postings. And thank you for sticking with me this past year!
