A Fresh Start

When I renamed this blog to Carolina Mrs., I was still a newlywed and super excited to be relocating back to the Carolinas, my home. I was re-energized and excited to write about the next step in our lives as we got re-aquainted with Charlotte and built our first real home. Then, life happened. There have been some pretty tough days as we dealt with changes at work, the loss of a parent, two other extremely ill family members, and the joy of welcoming our daughter. This blog totally fell by the wayside. It was easier to push it aside in this new era of blogging, where fewer people comment and have a conversation and it is more about making money than making friendships. But, I have really enjoyed this little creative outlet over the last five (!) years. I'm really hoping to spend a little time on the couch in the mornings with this blog and reading all of yours on a real computer with a keyboard (the old school way that makes it so much easier to leave comments.) Its been really easy to just flip through on the Bloglovin' app instead of spending the extra few minutes to really engage like I used to. 

So, with that being shared, I'm closing the door on Carolina Mrs.

Naturally, I picked this title because as a teacher I love alliteration and as a mother, I love coffee. Anything productive I do these days is powered by large quantities of caffeine. But, I'm ok with that. 

We're still working on all the domain forwarding but it will be coming along eventually. 


  1. Congrats on your re-start :) As a former teacher, I'm all about caffeine and alliterations as well!

  2. I hope things are going much better now. And congrats and good luck with this new chapter!

  3. Love the new look and new outlook. I understand how easy it is to let blogging go with baby here and when you want to just have an outlet and not a business. Keep going and know that we are still here reading.


Thank you for stopping by!
