Surprise!!!!!!!! This is what I’ve been working on:

If you’re looking for The Albrechts Blog, you’re in the right place, I promise… we’ve just changed a little.

Many of you know that I’ve been talking about starting my own shop for months now. Well, I’ve really been talking about it for close to a year, if I’m honest. But after tons of work last week, the shop is so close to ready I can hardly stand it!! But all of this work for my new shop got me thinking about my blog. I really wanted my blog & shop to complement each other, and I started to sense “The Albrechts Blog” might be reaching the end of its life.

I asked myself, “Does The Albrechts Blog really fit this blog anymore?” Sure, it’s about “The Albrechts”… but it’s pretty one-sided. Jacob has written one post and, while I write about our marriage and adventures, I write a lot about my personal faith, my love for running, crafting and dreaming –  all things I love to do or am passionate about.

So, I’ve decided to go all in on this one and rebrand. Unfortunately, it seems like that is what everyone is doing lately… but that’s what works best for me and I’m really excited to move forward from here! Don’t worry, the content will be a lot of the same – faith, running, home decor, stories, and encouragement to chase your dreams. I think moving away from “The Albrechts Blog” and into “34 Magnolia Street” will open up many doors for new creativity, though.

AND FINALLY!!! My shop, also called 34 Magnolia Street, will launch on May 12! So, as excited as I am and anxious to get it out there, I’m making myself wait so I can tie up every loose string before it goes live. I hope you’ll celebrate with me and check it out on the 12th!

In the mean time, take a few minutes and look around – absolutely everything has been revamped, rewritten, and redesigned to fit this new chapter of life. I’m so excited. And I can’t say thank you enough for your support these past few weeks, especially last week, as I took extra time to work behind the scenes – I hope you like it as much as I do!

Don’t forget! If you have this page bookmarked, save a NEW bookmark with the new URL: – I don’t want you to miss out on anything! 😉

Tell me what you think!!!
