OMC It’s Finally Here

Welcome to the OMC Blog


Hello and welcome to my blog, OMC! Whew, I can’t believe the day has come and this little thing is going live.

If you are reading this, I just want to say thank you! I’m so very excited to start this journey and glad I can share it with you. I’ll be posting about all the good stuff – food, crafting, city adventures, home decor, and anything else that comes up in life. Hoping to keep it as real as I can 😉

I admit, it’s been a bit of a rough road to get here. I decided to start this blog last September (almost a year ago!) as a way to put myself out there. It was a large project to take on, especially since I’m somewhat of a perfectionist. However, I could not have anticipated the amount of self doubt that came along. It seemed like I couldn’t decide on anything from the name to the colors – I’m pretty sure I spent at least two weeks deciding what was the “right” shade of mauve I wanted as an accent color. I wrote and re-wrote everything. I constantly compared myself to other bloggers out there and made excuses as to why I shouldn’t do this. The site went dark before this it even launched. I admit, it wasn’t my best self.

But, a little over a month ago I quit my job, moved to Chicago with my boyfriend (and dog!), and found myself refreshed with the prospect of so many possibilities ahead. I realized that I will probably make a mistake, or two, or a million as a blogger but I’ll never know what I am capable of until I try. Sorry for the sap but here’s to taking that leap!

Welcome to OMC!
