Hello! I hope you’re doing well. ❤ I’m sharing this post to let you know that I’m now blogging on a new blog! I created it yesterday and started posting on it today. 🙂 It’s called The Expressive Life, and I’m so excited to let you guys know about it. Click here to be among the first to follow it! (Well, it depends on when you read this post, but that’s okay, haha)
I’ve loved the time that I spent blogging on Dreaming of Guatemala, but I’m also really looking forward to starting a new blogging chapter on The Expressive Life. I decided to take the plunge and pay for a custom domain and access to all the premium themes, which I’m stoked about!
The Expressive Life is a personal blog where I will be sharing a huge variety of posts. For a while, I’ve been trying to share posts that fit into a particular niche or two, but on my new blog, I’m going to break the niche mold and talk about all the things I’ll enjoy writing about! On this post I shared this morning, I shared a quick list of some of the ideas I currently have.
This change will take some getting used to, as I’ve been going through other changes in my life recently as well, but I’m really happy about this decision to blog again. My mom has been encouraging me through all of this, and I really appreciate her words of wisdom and advice. If you’re reading this, Mom, thank you so much!
If you’d like to join me for this part of my blogging journey, I’d love to see you over at The Expressive Life! I can’t wait to interact with you guys again. ❤
Hello! I had planned on posting every day in October, but there have been some things going on in my life that have distracted me from writing posts. Everything’s fine, and I’m doing well, but I need some time away from Dreaming of Guatemala to really think about what I do with blogging, as well as the time I spend on screens in general.
Thank you for understanding, and thank you for reading!
One of the best ways we can grow as bloggers is by finding out what the WordPress community likes to see on our blogs! In this post, I invite you to participate in a general blogging survey I’ve put together below. It consists of nine questions for you to answer, and then you can see the community’s preferences.

I have been spending a lot of time recently doing fun activities and going on fun adventures with my family! As the weather here in Georgia has started to cool off (which has also brought some rain along with it), we’ve been doing things outside to heartily welcome the beginning of fall. I shared some playground photography in this post, and in today’s post, I’ll share some recent photos I took with my family members.

Recently, I found out that my friend Kaelyn is taking her first year of Spanish at school! I thought that was really cool, and I told her that I’ve been learning Spanish for quite a while now. When I realized that we could make a great collaboration together, where she could ask me questions about learning a new language and I could draw from my personal experience, that’s how this post came to be!

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about focusing more of my attention on the new things in my life. It can be very easy to do just keep doing what I’ve always done, return to what I’m comfortable with, etc., but I’m finding that also being open to new things and being excited about unique experiences is beneficial, too! Even if I find out that something isn’t as great as I’d thought it would be (I can’t think of a current example, but it does happen lol), it was totally worth a shot.

This past Tuesday, I had fun going to a playground with my mom, Samuel, Elizabeth, and Izzy! I took a lot of pictures to capture how much we were all enjoying ourselves. 🙂 Izzy did a bunch of exploring, and Elizabeth learned a new skill: rock-climbing!
