It’s Time for a Change

I’m sure you’ve noticed, but I’ve been seriously absent from my blog. I’m not going to lie, since Ellie arrived we haven’t gotten “out” to new places all that much. And I haven’t had a ton of free time. (New moms who are back to work: I know you can relate!)

But I’ve been thinking for some time about evolving this blog into something different. When I started Second City Gal, I had just turned 30 and was ready for a challenge and ready for some fun. What I wasn’t ready for was the hole in my wallet from going out so much, and sometimes I felt like a robot because I liked everything I was doing or was too scared to be completely honest about bad service (it didn’t happen often, though, I promise).

So, instead of writing reviews about all of the cool things I’m doing and places I’m going, how about just writing about my experiences and life in the city? I’ve embraced the fact that my life has changed a lot over the past three years. I like staying home on a Friday night with my husband, pup, and now daughter. I like going to the pizza place in my neighborhood where our favorite waiter knows us. 

Don’t get me wrong, I still want to try new places, but familiar is just as fun as fresh in my eyes. Have I grown up? Have I becoming boring? Probably a little bit of both. But I’m ready to share more about my life and experiences than the cute decor in a new small plates, farm-to-table restaurant. (Although there might be some of that, too!)

So I hope you continue on the journey with me. I might not post as often, but I hope it’s more meaningful.

Talk soon. Xo.

  1. I’ve ebbed and flowed on and off mine for years. People don’t tune in for a specific subject, they do so because they like your writing. Write about your passions and you’ll find the posts come easier. The same can be said for frequency. I’ll continue to follow along!
