Introducing my new blog, To Well With You

Regular readers of Suzy & Spice know that I launched a wellness-coaching business earlier this year, with a website “coming soon.”

After weeks of blood, sweat and tears (we won’t mention the cussing and discussing), soon has turned into finally. I launched the To Well With You blog on June 1. Bruce and I are still tweaking (hence the “cussing and discussing” that we’re not mentioning), but we’re pretty pleased with it overall. (I’ve also created a landing page that will link you to either of the two blogs, and the address is easier to remember: SuzyOakley.com. We’re still tweaking that page, too.)

I would love for you to check out To Well With You by clicking here, subscribe if you like, and share it with friends, loved ones, co-workers – anyone you think might enjoy it or benefit from it.

The site will focus on wellness, fitness and running, and I plan to post two or three times a week there. I’ll maintain a once-a-week schedule here at the big-sister blog, Suzy & Spice. Here, I will continue to write about “whatever strikes my fancy,” but at To Well With You I will have more targeted content.

Wellness encompasses a lot, so that’s why you’ll see a Farm2Home event on that site this week and in the weeks to come (a series!). I believe it’s important to eat fresh, unprocessed foods, to “buy local” as much as possible and to support our neighbors who grow and raise our food and make other products from their bounty.

Here at S&S, I’m planning another series related to farming – only this one will focus on the Main Street Farmers Market in Batesville, Ark. I can’t wait to tell you about some of the hardworking people I’ve met downtown on Saturday mornings. They’re awesome, and so are their foods and crafts!

And I’m planning a series on local small businesses (first up: a review of Elizabeth’s Restaurant and Catering downtown) at Suzy & Spice.

You might wonder, How does she find the time for all this and still work a full-time “day job”?

I wonder that, too.

Just call me wonder woman. I am figuring it out as I go along, because this blogging business is important to me. It lights my fire, even when my wood’s wet. The other night I went to bed way past my bedtime, beyond exhausted but smiling about the words and photos I posted in honor of the farmers, ranchers and product makers around our beautiful state.

I love to tell great stories. If my words and images can get you to feel the right emotions and maybe even take positive action, I’ve done what I set out to do.

I can’t make a habit of late-to-bed and exhausted every day, but I made a conscious decision that it’s necessary sometimes if I want to make an impact on others for good.

If I’m tired while working to fulfill my mission, well … that’s why the good Lord invented the Sunday nap.
