Welcoming Big Changes

Welcome! Today is the day that I've been eagerly awaiting for the past few weeks as I redesigned and prepped for the changes that are now live on this little blog! Though the design is still being tweaked slightly, what was formerly Adventures of the Stay At Home Mom is now Gl√§dje (pronounced GLEE-uh-DEE-uh). Since I write about the things that give me joy, it seemed only fitting that the meaning of my title be just that, while the language itself is a nod to my Swedish roots that have me tossing around the word casserole and you betcha more often than I would care to admit.

It's a big change to be sure, but nothing will be different on here with the content other than the changes that have taken place over the last few months. There will still be funny poo stories, pictures of our adventures, and my continual obsession with dresses which reached threat level orange on Black Friday (oh, the deals). I will still be writing about parenthood and our adventures in house-hunting... but instead of a seven word title that only partially describes this blog, there's a single word that sums up my desire for this space. Pure joy.

Thanks for coming along for the ride!

P.S. To those of you who visited earlier today before I got this post live, apologies if there was confusion! The flu has hit our house and while I've thus far been able to stay healthy, I've been running between a toddler who picked today to act out in the worst ways possible and a sick husband. Right now, we're just counting our blessings that the baby is finally healthy again and that my nonexistent immune system has held up... so far!


  1. Love the new name! Very fun and interesting! Hope everyone feels better soon!

    1. Thanks Verna! It's definitely less of a mouthful, so that's nice for sure!

  2. I'm loving the new name and the beautiful photography you've been posting these days. Really fun seeing more of YOU!
