Here's to New Beginnings

Wow, where to begin?

I've wanted to write this post for many months now, but as you can see by my lack of presence here, I haven't been able to find the words. In May, I graduated with my Bachelor's in Mass Communications and promptly plunged headfirst into attempting to finish my novel. (Keyword = attempting.) Then I traveled with my family, got a camera(!), and now I am working at a job I love, doing marketing for my alma mater.


Yet all of this, and no blogging.

All of this, and it sounds more glamorous (and less painful) than it was.

All of this, and I'm still learning.

This space has been on my heart and mind for many months now.

While I still don't know exactly what is to come, I do know that I am excited. I don't know about you, but lately, I have been yearning to go on a new adventure. To have a fresh start. To begin again. Life has been nothing but endings and beginnings lately, which is good and hard all at once. And I feel that reflected in my blogging journey, too. I'm ready to breathe new life into this space, with the help of Christ.

Welcome to the new Acoustic Erin.

I welcome your feedback and thoughts and friendship as I set sail on a whole new chapter for my blog. I will be making changes to this space slowly but surely, and as I explore this process, I invite you to join me, as always.

Tell me how you've been!

Do you like the new design? Did you have a good summer? How can I pray for you?

Thanks for everything.

  2. I love your new blog design and congrats on graduating! I had an amazing summer full of sharing Jesus Christ with others, running around with little humans, and editing my book. You're not the only one embarking into a new chapter - I am as well, and I know how exciting and scary it can be.

    God's got this! <3

  9. Yay welcome back! Congratulations on graduating (and working!) Enjoy the rest of your summer, and I'm looking forward to reading your posts!

    (and in case I haven't introduced myself yet, hi! I'm Hanne. I think I started following your blog right before you went on hiatus. I think I came from Grace Anne? Or, looking through previous comments, I also know Jessica, Evangeline, and Kara Lynn. So maybe any of the above??)
