Things have been crazy around here! The official Lace & Lu blog launch is only ONE MONTH (and two days) away and there's still so much to do. I have interviews to conduct, photography sessions to complete, articles to write, and so much more. I want to make sure that I'm giving you guys the best content possible and it takes time to do that!
In the meantime, I want to share a little behind-the-scenes insight on how I'm prepping for our launch. This week, I'm finalizing the Home page and creating the About page. It's pretty tedious stuff to be perfectly honest. I've had to sit down and really think about what I wanted to say and I how to get my message across. But it's also been a rainy couple of days so there's no better time to buckle down and get it done.
On a happy note, the weather was BEAUTIFUL last week! I took advantage of the sunshine and drove Luna down to a nearby dock for an hour. We met my friend Shannon there - she has a little boy about Luna's age and (like me) is working on her photography skills. She took these shots of me and Luna while baby Arthur played nearby :)
I knew these pictures would be PERFECT for the blog if they turned out well. But when Shannon sent them to me, I couldn't believe how much I loved them! It's not that I don't have faith in Shannon's skills - she's incredible! But Luna was ready for a nap and a little cranky and I was sure I looked like a complete mess! Maybe that's why these pictures turned out so well, though. Because by the time we got around to shooting them, I was more focused on Lu and less focused on trying to pose for pictures. Just looking at her makes me happy and I think we can all agree that EVERYONE looks better with a smile :)
The hardest part about incorporating these pictures into my blog was choosing which ones to use - there are so many I love! I ended up selecting one for my Home Page and one for my About page. As for the rest, I'll use them to build anticipation for the blog on my social media accounts. It's all part of the roll-out plan I'm currently putting together and I'm hoping it's at least somewhat effective. I'll probably write more about that later if I can find time!
In the coming weeks, you'll have the option to sign up for the Lace & Lu monthly email list. Until then, check back regularly for updates and let me know if there is anything you'd like to see on the blog. I'm always looking for inspiration!
