I am determined for 2013 to be a special year. A year that is full of life, love, adventure and fun. I am determined to be more fearless, vulnerable, and passionate. I hope everyone who reads my blog notices these changes, starting with the most obvious one as you came and visited here today! I wanted this new year to include a fresh start here on The Atypical Housewife. As all my readers know I have struggled writing here the last year. I've been unsure as to who I've been as a blogger and where I was going. Thankfully I have finally figured it all out. I've come to the conclusion that I am not a Christian homemaking blog. I don't fit there. I am, however, a lifestyle blogger. Quite frankly, I'm recording my life here. I hope what I write not only documents my life, my adventures, but can also teach and encourage other women. I am determined to make my blog an expression of myself and my life. So be prepared for posts that may be a little...atypical.
