Stay gold comes from respectively The Outsiders referencing a Robert Frost poem. To me, it means that constant effort has to be made to keep developing into the type of person God knows I can be.
There is a part of me that thinks by just being me and loving me that it will help others too. When you read my blog, I hope you feel comfortable with yourself too. I hope you realize that we all experience positive and negative experiences. This is a community where you can laugh sometimes, where you realize there is more than meets the eye, and that you feel that we’re all becoming ourselves a little bit more together.
I don’t think our purposes in life are as complex or unreachable as we make them out to be. Rather, I think they are already here in our everyday.
I share my everyday on this blog to show that the little things are what help you grow as a person.
Things you will find on Stay Gold Autumn:
- I am no professional chef and I definitely mess up recipes sometimes, but I find a great deal of joy sharing favorite recipes! My favorite recipes that we created together are our chocolate pineapple upside down mini cakes and spaghetti bake recipes!
- Traveling is one of our favorite hobbies together. We’ve been to over 38 states together in the 6 years that we’ve been married and in 2016 we went to six different countries (I’m still writing these up!). Nothing helps you learn more about yourself than being in a new place 🙂 .
- I love reading books and the things they teach me! I post my monthly book reviews here and these are 12 books I’m reading in 2017.
- I talk about my highs and I talk about my lows, but I always write constructively and positively about the experiences I share.
- This is a tour of our home and here are miscellaneous projects around our home 🙂 .
- A huge blessing in my life is adoption ! I talk about my experiences from my story to questions that I have often been asked.
- I was diagnosed with autoimmune disease in 2016 and lost about half of the hair on the top of my head because of it. I share other people’s experience with autoimmune illness as well.
- I also have PTSD which I guest posted about on another blog here, but I do openly talk about my anxiety here.
