Hi there, friends! It’s been one year since we launched this blog. Can you believe it? Because we can’t! It’s our 1st Blogiversary!!! Redeeming Hampton was born from a desire to share inspiration to love what’s right in front of us – our home, our life, and our friendships. If you’re new here, read more on why I created Redeeming Hampton here and the history of our home here.
Honestly guys, I’ll be the first to admit that I get super gung-ho about an idea aaaaand then I let it go. So, I’m feeling very proud to be here one year after starting this blog – still writing and sharing weekly. The best part? This community that has formed. Thank you for being here and for all your support!
One thing we want you to know
Mike and I aim to be as real and honest as possible with you guys, but the fact is that I’d have to be on here and social media all the time to show you ALL OF IT. And I don’t want that for me or for you. Know that we are real people, imperfect with many flaws just trying to be faithful to the Lord with our time, relationships, home, work, and hobbies.
We always want to make sure you know that while it’s fun to update our spaces and make them pretty, they aren’t to show off or to gloat. It’s to cultivate life and relationships. BUT, the thing is friends – we don’t need pretty spaces to have a beautiful, full life.
Anytime you see people sharing life online, use wisdom in how you view it. When you see Mike and I, know that there’s so much more to our life than what you see – so if you’re like, “all they do is work on their home,” that’s actually not true. 🙂 And if you are comparing yourselves to us, know that each of us have our own struggles. Unless we live daily lives together, you won’t ever see the whole picture.
We want to encourage you to go out from here to love what and who God has put in front of you. And we hope we help inspire you to do that even in the smallest way!
What would you like to see more of in the year ahead?
This first year has been a ride! And we’re here because of you! I want to know – what do you want to see more of in the year ahead? What’s been your favorite project? What have you tried in your own home? DIY? Painting – whether technique or wall color? Getting creative with spaces and making them work for your family? We’d LOVE to hear from you! Drop us a comment in the comment section at the bottom of the post!
