Welcome to the New Freckled Italian
Happy Friday, friends! I’m so excited to finally be sharing my new and updated website, complete with fresh branding. Everything was done by my genius still-have-never-met-before-in-real-life-but-knows-me-like-a-sister designer/friend Kelly, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with all of it.
Last year I took a lot of time to really think about what I wanted this blog to be, and I kept coming back to a general theme of “home,” and more specifically “food + words.” I’m usually happiest with the content I put out when it’s a delicious recipe or a personal essay that allows me to share little bits of my life with my readers, so that’s what I plan to focus on the most. I’ll still share the occasional product post and more short-form pieces (Five Favorites, Sentences, Some Things You May Not Know About Me, etc.), but I’m hoping to post more regularly in 2019 and zero in a bit more.
I’m also really enjoying sharing some of my motherhood journey so far, and I’ve been really pleased with the response those types of posts have gotten. It’s a wild ride and I’m always so happy to share mine and hear from you about your own experiences. Thank you for always being so open and helping me create a safe space to share.
A few housekeeping items: I’ve been wanting to start a newsletter of sorts—not so much a recap of what’s on the blog (although I’ll probably include that here and there), but an honest-to-goodness letter that I sit down and write to whoever subscribes. It might be monthly, it might just be quarterly—I’m still not too sure of the details but if it sounds like it might be interesting to you feel free to sign up here.
And finally, going forward I do plan to continue to partner with brands, although I hope to remain picky and really only work with companies that I love and who speak to me in some way, on content that I’m proud of and excited to share. If you are interested in working together in 2019, please send me an email.
That’s all for now! Wishing you a wonderful weekend—please feel welcome to stay a while and click around the new site. Let me know what you think!
As always, thank you so much for reading! This blog has seen me through so many life changes and ups + downs, and it has always been such a gift to have this space to share with you all. Every kind comment and email you guys take the time to send truly mean the world to me—I really do love hearing from you! I hope you continue to feel at home and uplifted here.
