Welcome to A Sweeter Vue! I am so happy you stopped by! Blogging has been an on and off hobby of mine for, oh, about the last four years. I originally started blogging after my husband and I moved far, far away from my hometown. Adjusting was a lot more difficult then I anticipated and life tested me even a smidge more when he deployed. I was in desperate need of an outlet for all the thoughts buzzing through my mind! Blogging fell into my lap after reading a friend’s blog and although I loathed writing in high school and college, the words just seemed to flow when I sat down at my computer. Where was that when I was writing 10+ page papers?!?
My somewhat perfectionist personality led me to create blog after blog in hopes of finding just the right blog name, perfect design, writing captivating content, snapping amazing pictures and creating a blog that I was really proud of. The hazards of being a perfectionist. 😉 None of them ever felt just right, but my urge to write was always there and still is! I decided to take a step back and reflect on what I really wanted my blog to represent.
Fast forward to March 2015 and A Sweeter Vue hatched from my focus to live a more positive and purposeful life. My son and husband helped me realize that the tiny sliver of “work” (I am a full time mom) that I felt was missing could be fulfilled by sharing things in my life I have a passion for through my love of writing. I spent a lot of time reading other blogs, thinking about what others would enjoy reading and focusing on sharing my thoughts about healthy living, common sense/low stress parenting, cooking (I LOVE food), gluten free lifestyle, supporting local/organic, fashion/decorating on a budget and adjusting to frequent life changes. There is a little something for almost everyone and you’ll see I write with humor, a pinch of sarcasm, love and honesty.
As you click around A Sweeter Vue I hope you enjoy the reads, maybe the photos (I am so not a photographer, but I try) and specialty sections I created from things I have looked for in an enjoyable blog. I want to share what has made my life easier, happier, healthier and fun all within reason. I am not a super mom who does it all and I am not perfect…despite being a perfectionist. 🙂 I am, however, a wife, mama and tree-hugging fashionista who enjoys writing about a sweeter vue on life instead of the sour. Thanks for joining me!
Cheers ~ Kate
