I’m coming back! 

Wow! It’s been a while. I’m going to make a concerted effort to slowly make my way back into blogging….

Life has changed a lot! I’m working as a reporter in Birmingham, Alabama and I love it. It’s a lot of hard work with long hours but worth every minute. 

My husband also works long hours- but still loves his job! We’ve decided while we are in our 20’s, it is the perfect time in our lives to focus our energy toward our careers wholeheartedly.

my coolest press pass yet! Whit House Press Pool!

I was recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I will not bore you with the details, but basically I’m gluten free now. 

THIS IS A HUGE LIFESTYLE CHANGE FOR ME. (This article explains why I’m avoiding gluten if you are interested. “Imagine every bite of gluten literally burning up a piece of your thyroid tissue that you will never get back!”) 

This new diet has be constantly searching for new recipes and cooking more! I’ve come up with a lot of great recipes on my own that I can’t wait to share. 

(The paleo recipes I’ve shared in the past have done really well on Pinterest! I think these future post might do even better!)

I became blog shy after I took a serious “how to make money blogging” class online. It was a four week program that literally made me shy to blog. That coupled with a computer that started to slow down and a new intense job… the blog went out the window. 

So let me just say for the record, I’m NOT doing this blog to make money. I’ve got about $20 in my google ads account from this site. 😂 I’m doing this for the reason I blogged for many years; because I love sharing things that make me happy! Things isn’t a strong descriptive noun… but it’s the best word for what this blog is. It started as random and whimsical…. and maybe during this new chapter I’ll kind a focus. 

If you are still following this blog. THANK YOU. If you are new, check back! 

Have a happy week with the SUNNY time change! ☀️☀️☀️

    Hi, Lillian! Good to see you back on the creative side. I had a thyroid issue, too, after Hannah was born. Graves’ Disease, hyperthyroidism. I lost 60 pounds in about 2 months! It was the “shakes” that sent me to the dr. I ended up having a radioactive thyroid pill. So now I am on Synthroid for life (cuz now my thyroid is Hypo…LOW, VERY LOW activity, like, none at all.) I’m glad you’ve found the issue. I hope you continue to do well with the new diet. Give my love to mommy! Robinegg
