Today I wanted to do something I haven't done in quite a while, but with an added twist. A long time ago, I talked about my blog name and how I came up with it. Some of those reasons remain the same, but since 2013, it's safe to say my life has changed drastically!
So pretty much life right? I can't think of the last time I didn't have so many things running through my head without a care in the world. I think the only place you can feel like that is Margaritaville...or possibly Jamaica, and it's definitely been a few years since I was in the Caribbean. Every day I feel like I'm trying to find balance between my baby girl, work, eating healthy, working out, playing with my pups, giving time to my husband, working on this blog, spending quality time with my friends and family, and everything else in between!
When I first changed my blog's name in August 2013, I was going through a major life change. I was leaving my comfy corporate job and solid paycheck to become a full time health and fitness professional. I wanted this space of mine to represent my crazy life balancing health, fitness, running, my husband, puppies and traveling.
These days I feel like I'm trying to balance and juggle everything I have going on in this life of mine! I love fitness, and I'm still working 2 days a week. I still travel and love posting about our adventures. My running has taken the back seat for a little while; I need to let my body continue to heal after several injuries over the past year. Don't worry I'll continue to post about my running as a gradually fall back into it. My family has expanded and in the best way. I've always posted about my life and now, my life revolves around Chloe. She seems to be a recurring trend in my posts, but I'm trying to balance it all out. Finding a happy medium in life is what it's all about right?!
Speaking of Chloe and while we're talking about the meaning behind names. I thought I'd share a bit about her name!
We chose Chloe simply because we knew we wanted a sweet, feminine name. We ran through several names that we didn't necessarily dislike, but we knew it wasn't right for our little princess. Once we thought about Chloe and added it to the list, we couldn't stop thinking about it! It was one of those 'when you know, you just know' kind of situations.
I loved Grace as a middle name and 'Chloe Grace' had an elegant, feminine flow. I also love calling people by their first and middle name which is why I often refer to my girl as Chloe Grace. Grace is too beautiful of a name to leave out. In case you're wondering...here's the meaning behind Grace too!
I love my blooming little gift from God and her name more than anything. The gift from God part couldn't be more true. I am so blessed to be chosen as this girls momma.
So what's in a name? Do you know what your name means?
If you have a blog, what's the meaning behind the name you chose?
I love learning about how people's blogs came to be!
In case you're wondering, Amy is French and means 'greatly loved'!
