I Am A Band Mom. My Clarinetist.

I never thought I would say this, but I am a band mom. My daughter Skyler is a Clarinetist and she is loving it. I have also realized that I don’t feature her enough on here and on Instagram and I feel really bad about that. I can’t wait to start showcasing her more as I have a few ideas to show her how proud of her I am… But Why am I so proud to be a band mom and so proud of my clarinetist?

Sometimes Life Happens

I few weeks ago, I purchased my original domain name, megannance.com and I have worked on it off and on getting it up and running, but I am so intertwined with Odysseys With Love that I think I am going to just keep the new site as my photography site. I was going to move over different aspects of this site to the new one, but I just don’t think that would work for me. I love Odysseys With Love and the Odysseys brand.  But you know what? Sometimes life happens and I have been very busy in other areas of life than the website, but things are starting to calm down, and I will be back here soon. With a complete new look and overhall of Odysseys With Love and so much more. So loyal readers, keep a lookout!

Where Did We Go? A Odysseys With Love Update

A few weeks ago, I posted that I would be doing better time management wise, and well, me being me, that just did not happen. I really am trying to do better but well life gets in the way, and Odysseys With Love took to the back burner. That is changing today, it has to. I have put a lot of work and effort into this and I guess I have just burned out myself too. So Where Did We Go?

I Now Own A Silhouette!

Last week I was asked what I wanted for Christmas. Truthfully, I had no idea until I went through my Amazon Wish List and saw the Silhouette sitting there. Something that mom and I always talked about doing was making t-shirt and other craft items. So, after seeing the Silhouette just sitting there and then again seeing it at my local Michaels store, I knew what I wanted.Â
As soon as I could, I went to Michaels and picked up the Silhouette Cameo 3. I also picked up a few accessories and other things that I wanted to go with it. I got it home and immediately got it out and started working with it

The Future of Odysseys With Love

Since Odysseys With Love began, I have noticed one thing about the articles I have been writing. I really wanted us to be a travel blog. I am noticing that a lot of the travel-related post has been kind of put to the side here lately for other things. That’s ok, Odysseys With Love is growing and that’s a wonderful thing. I sat back this morning and really thought about what I want Odysseys to really be about. What I want our YouTube channel to be about. Travel . Family . Love So, with everything going on, does the Travel part of our tagline really fit in? It does, as we write about different trips that we have or plan to take, but it really isn’t the #1 thing that and doesn’t deserve to be the first thing our readers see when visiting Odysseys With Love. Lets look at the definition of Odyssey: an intellectual or spiritual wandering or quest I personally am on wanderer. I am always on a quest for self-discovery and learning who I am. Odysseys With Love is the journal of our family’s wanderings and learning who we are. A New Tagline? We need to find a new tagline other than Travel, Family, Love. I thought about changing the name as we move towards a blog about the DFW area, but Odysseys With Love still fits us. As we share our Journey in Love and Family, we share how we also fall in love with the Dallas/ Fort Worth area. A few things about the site will be changing. DFW has and always will be the focus of Odysseys With Love.  But is a tagline really needed? No, not really. I am sharing more about my own hometown, Mesquite Texas, should that be part of the tagline? This is something that I am not 100% sure on other than the fact I share a lot of other information about DFW too. Wandering in DFW That is who we are! I am constantly learning and wandering and expanding. We are a Wandering Family always our for learning not only about our little town but DFW In general. DFW will soon be the #1 menu item on this site. But what else will be changing? What Is Odysseys With Love REALLY About? First, let me introduce myself again. Hi, my name is Megan. I am a wife to James, and mother of Skyler and Rhyan. I am a DFW local that loves to wander and discover the world around us. I am also a photographer and scatterbrained “artsy-fartsy” type. We are always growing and learning new things and love sharing our discoveries. What will you find on Odysseys With Love? My journal pretty much. I share everything from what is going on in my life from my relationship with James to parenting the two most wonderful and infuriating girl. Six Flags and Theme Park Fun, things we find in and around DFW and SO SO MUCH MORE! New Additions To Odysseys With Love You might have seen the new Mesquite Texas Guide. That is the newest addition to Odyssey With Love. I am planning to adjust the YouTube channel to also include different types of videos, you just might have to bear with me for a little while. At least until I am used to being on camera. I am planning on introducing several new things to the channel including reviews, unboxings, and much more. Crafting? I may be sharing my adventures in “Pinterest Win or Fail” here soon too as I am trying my hand at crafting again now. It could be fun and interesting. Please Forgive Me While I Figure Out Who I Am And What I Want To Be When I Grow Up! Yes, That really fits right here now. I am still trying to figure all this out. You will be seeing more from us now that I kinda have a little figured out, but I am still learning and growing not only as a blogger but also as a person! Thanks For Reading! ?
