Who’s reading…taking the plunge

I LOVE to stalk peoples blogs. I often find myself feeling like I know certain people when I really don’t (all because of blogs!). My friend Alli and I talk about this all the time, mainly because we both read Beth Moore’s blog and various other women who we don’t really know (but we feel like we know ALL about them!)
Well last night at book club, I met someone who I KNEW looked familiar/her daughters name sounded familiar – all because I read her sister-in-law’s blog & saw pictures of them from Christmas! How funny (Paige!) Anyway, it got me thinking – who all reads this blog? Should I let people know via the Internet that I read their blog before I awkwardly announce in public “oh you don’t know me – but I read your blog” because that has happened SO MANY TIMES in the past month (even last week at church). It’s sorta embarrassing…so I’m going to let my voice be heard via who I’m “following”. It’s a sad truth that I follow TWENTY SIX blogs. Yes, you heard right. Wow – I have too much time on my hands apparently?
So today I took the plunge – I let everyone who’s blogs I read know that I read them. It’s a lot easier if you have the “follow me” feature on your blog – so do me a favor – go ahead and add that to your blog & let me know if you are reading me šŸ™‚ I love to find NEW blogs. And if you are a blog stalker, reading blogs in Google Reader is so nice & easy – you will thank me! *if you don’t know how, message me and I”ll help you!
If you are still reading and have NO idea who I am (but found me because I am “following you”) let me try to jog your memory:
How you might know me/be connected to me:
  • I used to be Wynne Trippet
  • We went to high school together in Waco
  • We went to Baylor together
  • Maybe we were even pi phi’s together
  • we both lived in Austin (maybe went to LHC?)
  • we both go to Stonegate in Midland
  • I am friends with your sister, brother, in laws, cousin, etc
  • I think I’m friends with you only because I’m a friend of a friend
  • we met at a wedding, half marathon, book club, , etc
  • maybe we used to work together (I’ve had a lot of jobs, people!)
  • We went to camp together/worked at camp together
  • our husbands and/or families are friends
If you STILL have no idea – well then I just found your blog via someone else’s – so take it as a compliment that you have a very interesting story/blog!

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life.  I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, Iā€™m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when Iā€™m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends

  17. Liz Seymour says:

    I plead the 5th–and follow your blog. šŸ˜‰ I think it’s because I dream of living in Waco, one of these days, and see that you are from there. I LOVE me some Waco. All the best to you.

  18. Hey Wynne- I read your blog! I have no clue how I came across it, probably someone from Baylor though. Glad you guys are enjoying Midland! My grandpa lives there and is a retired doctor. I have SO many memories of visiting Midland during my childhood. Happy blog reading!

  19. Leslie says:

    Hello! I think I found your blog through Abby Martin Lea’s blog and have popped in occasionally ever since! I worked in Student Activities at Baylor as a graduate assistant from 2005-2007 and got to know lots of Baylor sorority girls. So, yeah…totally a stalker šŸ™‚
