Welcome to the Newlywed Pilgrimage blog! This little place in the blogosphere is where I like to share creative inspiration. You’ll find crafts, cooking, and friendly conversation here. I hope that this blog will inspire you to create the life you want to live. I firmly believe that, as women, we are the masters of happiness in our households. I’m not an expert homemaker, and I don’t claim to be, but my purpose in this life is to spread joy…one craft, one recipe, one conversation at a time.
About The Newlywed Pilgrim
I haven’t always been crafty or familiar with cooking. This blog happened by accident. One month after we married, my husband moved us from our lifelong home state of Texas deep into the Amish country in Ohio. It was an exciting adventure at first, but gloom soon set in due to the stress of his job, the lack of a support system (friends and family), and the hardship of not having basic shopping and entertainment amenities. I became bored and purposeless.
My marriage was the only thing that brought me happiness during that time. Once I decided I’d had just enough negativity in a few short months to last a lifetime, I set out to create a different mood in my home. I began learning how to cook, bake, decorate, and create through blogs. Come to find out, I sincerely enjoyed these things, and I had a talent for it.
I decided to start a blog to keep in touch with loved ones in Texas and share my recipes and crafts with whoever needed inspiration. Fast forward a year or so, and we’re back in Texas, living a blessed life full of friends and family. I’m creating joy in my household each and every day, and I’m blogging about it every step of the way. I’ve found true comfort, understanding, inspiration, and knowledge through blogs, and I pray that my blog will do the same for others.
