my BIG announcement! - Porsha Carr Blog

my BIG announcement!

Hi friends!
It's been a long two week blog break, but while it has been long it has also been much needed. Today I am back! & I am back with some great news & a huge life update!

I am so excited to officially reintroduce myself to you. 
My name is Porsha Carr.
I am a mom.
I am a wife.
& now...


Yep! that's right I finally decided to take the leap of faith, quit my 9 to 5 & blog full time. If you follow me on Instagram then some of you may have already figured it out. Since my daily Insta stories are no longer filled with lonely office views but are now filled with fun cheerful views of my girls playing at the park or doing arts & crafts. 

It took me a long time to make this decision. I have been blogging for almost a year & a half now and when my blog started doing well and making money I always thought in the back of my head "could I do this full time?". I struggled with the decision as I went back and forth. Made a list of the pros and cons, talked to my friends & family, thought about how it would affect my girls. It wasn't an easy decision at all. When I finally decided this is what is best for me it felt good, because for almost 2 years I sat in a job that made me miserable and it felt bad. 

Everything that happened leading up to this was a bumpy ride I will admit. But I wasn't alone, I had the biggest supporters. My husband. He witnessed my struggle more than anyone and when I talked to him about what I wanted to do he fully supported it every step of the way. My parents. Without them, I literally couldn't have done it. Even though I am an adult they have walked me through it in every way, shape, and form. My mom still tells me daily how proud of me she is. It keeps me going. My best friends. My close group of girlfriends has been so freaking amazing! I can't even begin to tell you. Nicki, she's like my second mom. She kept me strong & gave me daily advice. Melissa, she encouraged me to leap with grace & style. She is the best friend I could ever ask for. Karen, pregnant with twins, blogging & working all at the same time & she still found time to help me through the ups & downs. Maria, oh man Maria my step brother (inside joke) I honestly cannot thank her enough for every single thing she did to help me through this. words can't express how thankful I am for her. She has the biggest heart ever.

I couldn't be happier with the choice I made now. Looking back on things I wish I would have chosen this path sooner. Though everything happens for a reason I am so very excited about this journey. So what now? Now I am my OWN boss! I set my hours, I create my own break & lunch schedule, & bouns I can wear my pajamas to work ;)

But seriously this is a brand new time in my life & a very big one at that. I look forward to the future & I am especially thankful to be able to be home with my girls every day working from home as they grow. Thank you to everyone who supports my dream, my blog, my Instagram everything thank you. 

My friends this is only the beginning.

Huge shout out to my photographer Kyle Taylor. Kyle photographed all of these amazing celebratory photos for me. It was my first time ever doing a photo shoot alone and he made me very comfortable. He's super sweet, super professional and takes beautiful photos. Be sure to check him out here & follow his Instagram page here.
 Thank you so much, Kyle.
