Well hello there! I am so glad you found it to my little corner of the internet. Let me introduce myself!
I’m Anna, a midwestern wife and mama living in Kansas City with my three sweet little people and my college sweetheart husband. I am a teacher by day, and creative blog owner and decor enthusiast by night!
This blog was once a far off pipe dream that seemed like only something from my imagination. While I had plenty of passion, I lacked the courage to take a leap of faith and dive in. All of that changed for me in a series of events that were sparked after I read Rachel Hollis’s book, “Girl, Wash Your Face”. In the moments I spent glued to her book, I came to an enlightening understanding about my life.
In those moments, I realized I had some big dreams. And they were terrifying to me. I was terrified of trying and failing. And I was even more afraid of what other people would think of me. Rachel’s words echoed in my heart.
Someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business.-Rachel Hollis, Girl Wash Your Face
I read those words and it was as if someone was looking directly into my soul and speaking to the root of my fears. I knew in those moments I owed it to myself to give this thing a try. It was time to relinquish the power I was giving others over my hopes and dreams by caring about their opinion far more than my own. Their opinions had no power over my passions and dreams.
So, in the late summer of 2018 – It’s Anna Blog was born. A labor of love carefully crafted to blend my passion for home, decor, writing and sharing in .community with other women and creatives.
It is my vision for this space to be one where you can seek answers to the home styling and decor questions you have. It’s more than that for me, though. My home is important to me because of the people who are in it. So you will find various other lifestyle and “mom stuff” here.
You know what I would really love? If we could become friends! So I basically just poured my heart out to you, I would love it if you would reach out, send me an email – tell me about YOU. How did you get here? Why did you stay? What can I help you with? Wanna grab coffee? Let’s do this! I want to get to know YOU!
Things that give me warm fuzzies: a quiet morning with a cup of coffee, white sandy beaches, clean sheets, a cozy and full bed, after church Sunday naps, new notebooks and pens, a beautiful planner, wine and girl time, quality time with my guy.
Send me a message on Instagram (I am there a LOT). Find me on Facebook and join the Life + Style Collective private group!
I’d love to hear from you! You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]! Tell me about your warm fuzzies. 🙂
