Just the other day, we were listening to someone speaking (we don't remember if it was a podcast or a sermon) but they made a statement that went something like this, The only thing constant in our lives is CHANGE. We've heard it before. In fact, we're pretty sure Jay has said it a time or two.
But it's true; the only thing constant in our lives is change. Over the last couple of years, we have experienced a lot of change in our family. Kids moving out, getting married, the arrival of our first grand-baby; these major milestones and life-changes have all happened in the last two years! Needless to say, life looks a little different in the Higham House.
As we sat down to acknowledge and celebrate these incredible changes, we found ourselves thinking about the family blog and vlog. When we started sharing our story online, it was simply to document the goings-on of our family, so we could share them with grandparents and extended family that didn't live near us. But then in 2015, we made the decision to create a platform where we could share our family story with the hopes of encouraging other families! We began creating videos and posting them to YouTube. We wrote more about what we were learning as parents. We share family milestones and holidays. And we made a lot of great memories.
But life has changed. Our little kids have grown up. Our wonderful and crazy house once filled with 7 and a dog is quiet and calm with just 4 of us. Our adventures are different. The vlog is different. Life is different. And while all of this is good, we have come to the conclusion that it is time to change the direction and focus of the blog.
We are reimagining the blog, our content, posting schedules, and how we hope to encourage and bless our readers. Our goal is to have the new site fully functioning by May 1, 2023. With this new site, we will expand our content to reflect our current interests and activities. We will also introduce a regular posting schedule so that our readers will know when new content will hit the site.
Along with our new content, we hope to take some of our most popular articles from years past, update them, and repost them for our new readers.
So what will the new content look like? Great question, thanks for asking. Here's what you can expect.
House & Home
Something that we have always enjoyed doing in all of our houses is decorating and home improvement. In 2021, we started sharing pictures of our holiday and seasonal decorating. Those pictures have generated a number of comments that have encouraged us to keep sharing. And some of our recent DIY projects have been a lot of fun to share.
House & Home will feature ideas, tips, how to's, pictures, video, and resources from our most favorite suppliers and decorating stores. We'll share our seasonal and holiday decorating along with our ongoing home improvements and updates we make to our house.
So be sure to join us on Monday, May 1, as we officially relaunch the new, LifeintheHighamHouse.com. Until then, be sure to visit our social media as we are already updating and sharing new family related content.
