Let's Change Things Up a Bit


After an extremely long hiatus, I would like to announce that I am back for good. Being gone for an entire pregnancy, birth, and first month of our darling daughter's life, I can say I miss the blogging community. I am back with my feet more firmly planted, and with a renewed sense of purpose.


Life is constantly bringing us change. I guess that is what truly living is all about though. Without change in our lives we become stagnant like gnats in swarms on a hot summer day in the south, confused about where to go and what to do. So, we frantically keep doing what we've always done hoping that when we are old and gray that we will look back upon our life with a smile. How many of us actually do?

When I started this blog, life for me was starting to get stagnant. I was looking for a way to "liven up a bit". Since then, many life changes have come my way. It's to the point where I feel as though I have to make some changes around here with regards to what I write about, and the person that you see living here.

When I first started Grassroot Elegance, my husband helped me brainstorm the name. I wanted to convey an air of simple, basic, elegance and the beauty that can be had in daily life. I wanted to share with you how to take living back to the simple things in life and how to still feel alive, like the world is a better place because you were in it.

At that time we had simplified things in life to the point where I really felt that this title hit the nail on the head when it came to describing how we were living. It even does more so now. I hope that with this transition that you will be patient and kind. I have much to share, that I hope will bring you joy.

Thanks for reading.
