New Blog Name — BrianaLavoie.com

Spread the love

I’m excited to announce my new blog name! Homesweetbri.com is now BrianaLavoie.com.

I started my blog a little less than two years ago. When I started, it was because I needed a hobby and I had this itch in the back of my mind that I could turn something I loved into an income. I love writing and I love home décor so *BOOM* Homesweetbri.com was born.

I think part of the reason I’ve thrown my heart and soul into this blog is because I have some work-a-holic tendencies and when I’m not doing something I go stir crazy.

When I had a stress dream about my Instagram, I knew there was a problem. Something clicked. I realized I wasn’t having fun like I used to, and there was a lot of guilt in the Instagram posts (and lack thereof Instagram posts.)

When I’d post real life updates, instead of strictly home decor, it was guilt ridden and rushed. I started losing followers. Even people that I thought I was friendly with.

I was feeling guilty about my own home. When we bought this home, pre-blog, I loved it. Genuinely loved it. Then I was getting deep in the rabbit hole of Instagram and I felt my home didn’t measure up. It’s so silly, now that I’m spelling it out.

I want to enjoy this life inside this home and not resent it because it doesn’t look like everyone else’s. I started doing things that were trendy because everyone else was doing it. I had a bit of a reality check. Who lives here in my house? My Instagram followers?

I was feeling guilty about not keeping up strictly home décor posts, but that’s impossible with a [toddler tornado] who is home all day. I was feeling inadequate.

My blog got a face lift because I am embracing the chaos. I want this to be fun again. I want to be unique, genuine, and authentic. I don’t want to feel guilty when I post things that aren’t home decor related, or when I stray from the trends. I love my home, and I love the life within these walls.

If I am just like everyone else, how am I going to stand out and make a difference?

Giving my blog a new name–my real name–is the inspiration I need.

Well, here I am. Briana Lavoie. Wife, mom, shoe obsessed, home décor lover, Christmas aficionado, writer, and many more things. Unapologetically me. I hope you join me in this new chapter.
