New blog address and other fun stuff

Hey, friends!

I hope your 2019 is off to a great start! As we get this new year going, I wanted to say “thank you” to all of you who have followed my blog for so many years. I also wanted to let you know how to find me if you want to keep reading.

For the past few years, I’ve been wanting to change the name of my blog. When I started writing here almost 12 years ago, my kids were little, and I wrote lots of posts about their funny stories and the joys and challenges of parenting.

Now that they are older, my blog has shifted to focus more on my interests: creative projects, photography, my gluten-free lifestyle, as well as telling the stories of our life. I really don’t write much about parenting these days, and I didn’t want to exclude readers who might not be moms. I’ve thought long and hard about what to call this new space on the Internet, and after several years of pondering, I finally came up with an amazing title for a blog about ME: Emily Neal. 😉

If you haven’t checked it out already, here are the recent posts you might have missed:
