Cheers to Changes on Magnolia Moon

Hey, guys! It’s been a hot minute since we last talked, like a whole month actually. Crazy!

Wanna know what’s even crazier? All the changes that have been happening around here lately!

I hope that by now you’ve noticed the new name up top. That’s right, this blog is now known as…

Magnolia Moon

Surprise! I know it’s a little anticlimactic but the whole thing was unexpected even for me.

At the end of November I got an email from a company I am currently working with saying that they couldn’t actually find my blog anywhere. Well, needless to say that freaked me out quiet a bit. I immediately ran to my computer to check things out since I had been pretty much MIA since the start of the holiday season. I typed in monogrammedmagnolias.com like always and…nothing. That started this whole whirlwind of insane technical difficulties that are honestly too boring to get into but the solution ended up being a new domain. Hence the quick name change.

I’ve been bouncing around the name Magnolia Moon for a while now. It started out as a fun name I used to sell jewelry I made at my mom’s antique store and now it’s grown into something I completely adore. Magnolias are one of my favorite flowers and really represent my southern roots while keeping a bit of that Monogrammed Magnolia spirit around. The moon, well, the moon is everything! Honestly, I have this weird attraction/connection to the moon and have since I was a little kid so bringing that into the name means a lot to me.

With a new names comes a new vibe, new post topics, new content! This is going to open a whole new chapter for me as well as you, my audience!

There are plenty more changes coming to Magnolia Moon very soon. I hope you’ll stick around to see them all come to fruition. It’s gonna be a fun ride, I promise!

Inspiration for the Week

That’s Jen Gotch, co-founder of everyone’s favorite accessory brand, Ban.do. Isn’t she the cutest?

I found this image on Pinterest earlier and felt it really resonate with me. I clicked through to discover that the image was connected to a post and subsequent podcast known as The Lively Show on jesslively.com.

The episode was centered around the art of relaxation and creativity from Jen’s standpoint as a Creative Director and all around girl’s girl. I was instantly intrigued.

In the interview Jen talks about the vast range of more traditional jobs she took on before realizing her calling was in more creative endeavors as well as the changes she’s went through since.

I think this quote can mean a variety of things to a variety of people, especially seeing as change is on everyone’s mind with the new year maturing.

Personally, I’m going to take this quote as a lovely reminder that just because something I hold dear (whether that’s an event, a project, or even a friendship) ends that doesn’t mean that that part of my life is over. An ending only brings way for a new beginning.

I hope you all have a fantastic week ahead with new doors opening and pages turning all around you.
