The First Post

Welcome to Loving, Lately, a blog that will bring you exactly what it is named for - anything that I am loving, lately. Be it a trip that we have recently been on, a project that has been checked off the to-do list, or a great pair of shoes that I think you should know about! There are no limitations or boundaries and I hope that if you're a reader, you will enjoy what I have to share.

This is not my first foray into blogging. From 2008 - 2013 I kept a blog primarily for family and friends, and a few other readers who found me along the way. Somehow I managed to write just over 500 posts there, through the years. However, I have decided to start anew here with a blank canvas. I just felt the need for a fresh beginning. If you don't know me personally, you can learn a bit more by clicking 'About' on the above menu.

I've been thinking about how I wanted to re-enter the 'blogging world' for some time now. Did anyone even miss me? My '9to5' job has me in the corporate meeting and event planning industry, and I naturally have a love of travel. Do I write a travel only blog? Brian (my other half) and I also do a fair amount of DIY-projects and I really enjoy design- renovation, decor, refurbishment, and more. Keep writing about what you love. But then there's still the day-to-day that I wanted to incorporate: a new restaurant we loved, pictures from a recent vacation, or a book review. This is my life, I want to share it!

 I really enjoy the process of blogging, be it learning a bit of HTML and CSS for site design (so proud of what I had done here, so far!), doing the actual planning and writing of the posts, or wishing I already knew how to use Photoshop. I think the 'blog industry' is a fascinating one and there are so many opportunities to make of it what you wish.

I'm making no promises for frequency of postings, but I hope the be able to use this new platform as an outlet for the right side of my brain- the part that I sometimes feel is all bottled up in there just waiting to escape and make great things happen! I might not be entirely sure what those things are, right now, but I hope that this lovely little corner of my life continues to grow and evolve as time goes by.

Thank you for stopping in and come back real soon!
