Hi there. If you couldn’t tell from the sidebar or the About page, my name is Katie. This is my blog. And you, my friend, are reading the first post ever to be made live here.
Let me tell you a bit about myself. I’ve been blogging for years…my first blog, and the one that I have since grown out of, was started in June of 2012. Yup. Long time ago. I had just turned 18, so obviously I knew everything there was about life and how this thing called “being an adult” should work. HA. Anyways, that blog started out as just a place to share nail art that I did. Soon after that it blossomed into a full on blog, covering all the topics I loved – nail art, makeup, games, and more.
It’s been 5 years since starting that last blog, and over the last year or so, I’ve come to realize that I had outgrown it and the presence I had built. Don’t get me wrong, I still love nail art, makeup, video games and the like. But I’ve developed as a person to the point where I felt like trying to change my old blog to be everything I NOW need it to be was kind of pointless. So rather than essentially gutting my online 5 year old baby, I’ve decided to let it grow old, I will let it go back to the free-given webname that comes with the WordPress.com sites, let the CSS customization come down, and essentially saying goodbye to my past. Because I had realized why I was clinging so hard to something that I no longer was enjoying. It was the last piece of my younger self, when I thought that so many things would be different from how they are now.
But people change and grow, and just like flowers we sometimes need to be uprooted and replanted elsewhere if we are to continue to grow.
With that all out of the way, I give you a big through-the-computer hug to welcome you to the next chapter in my life online. Live Love Sunshine is going to be where I come to chat about life and things that I enjoy, including games, movies, DIY projects, self care, and my journey to start living healthier (because let’s face it, at 23 – 24 in June! O.O ) I need to stop eating pizza and takeout 4 out of 7 days in the week. 😉
Overall, I want this to be my de-stressing zone. My chill and fun area where I can share all of the things that I love and figure out this thing called “adulting”.
I hope you enjoy the ride with me.
till next time,
