Hi, I'm Kels!

The Best Sourdough Glazed Donuts

I have been trying to change my blog design for a long time now. My wonderful and talented cousin offered to design a new logo/header for me and we were working on it for a while but then I felt stumped. I felt uneasy and didn’t know which direction to take with it. Then one night I realized it was because I didn’t LOVE my blog name at all. It was a random decision years ago and I just haven’t come up with anything better! Until a few days ago. My husband and I were discussing my goals and things I wanted to write and teach about, and the entire time the word “simple” kept creeping in. I knew I wanted to incorporate it into my name. I also knew I wanted it to be more personal, and have my real name in it! And so, “simple life by kels” was born and here we are.

My love is for food, natural health, exercise, minimalism, family, etc. I think this new name can easily incorporate all of those and more. I hope to inspire others to live more simply in all aspects of life.

I figured that it was now or never (before I release some bigger things in the next several months). My brand has changed, and my blog FINALLY got the facelift it’s been crying out for. Switching to my own hosting and from blogger to wordpress has left me with plenty of residual headaches over the past few months. I am not a computer whiz by any stretch of the imagination and have flubbed up numerous times. But now I think I’m starting to get it to the point where I just need to post, and everything else looks okay!

Thanks for following along (mom and sisters). I appreciate the support and the growth this little blog has seen over the past few years and look forward to sharing more with you in the future!

  2. Kelsey, I too have been considering giving my blog a face lift (name change/ look) and also gear it towards “simple”. I love your header and the clean look of your blog. It looks great! Here’s hoping that things take off for you!
