Hey there! Boy what a week it's been, I can't tell you how much I wish I could have posted more. Whats ironic is before I inadvertently went dark, I was complaining about how arduous it is to post all the time and how I'm not sure if I've made the right decision by plummeting into social media for the sake of starting my businesses. But this morning I found myself missing it!
Some of this tension stems back to the fact that social media and I have a rocky relationship history, and of course one of my most common tendencies when dealing with internal tension is avoidance. 😳 I gave up FB and IG for a bit a few years ago – I couldn't take the pressure of it all.
And oh baby did I feel pressure after telling the universe I was going to start a blog!! But that’s a topic for another time.
What I learned about myself this week is that, even though I still struggle with the pressure of it all, not all of it gets to me in the same way. Hello growth! However, I do want to set expectations for all of you beautiful souls who've chosen to follow me on this journey 💙💙💙 I'm planning on posting at least twice a week: (1) I'll drop a longer "blog post" on life / love / relationships / etc. on Sundays – which I'm lovingly calling "Sundays with Stephanie" 💁♀️ – and (2) I'll post mid-week on my personal story. You can also catch me in my stories everyday posting inspirational quotes and other things I love, as well as updates on my currently plant-base diet challenge!! Thank you all so much for being here with me, I'm so excited for the things to come and SO grateful I'm able to share it all with you ✨💕💃
I can’t believe I’m writing this, but...
Detroit....I’m in ❤️with you. Going somewhere for the first time always excites me, but Detroit was never on my “cant wait to go” list, but I’m so glad I did. Art everywhere, local shops, incredible architecture (TOO many awesome renovated lofts 😍). I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I loved the vibe. The rain may have ruined my hair but couldn’t dampen my spirit. .
Seeing the city by bike and (especially) scooter was just too fun! (even though I did take a tumble) 🚲 🛴 .
This little getaway came at the perfect time, I’m coming back home with tired legs, a big smile, and only a few questions.
