Hi! My name is Stephanie, and I am so thrilled that you stopped by my little corner of the web world to check out my blog, Citrus and Sun! I live in Chicago with my husband Chuck and our two cats, Grizzy and Dezzy. I love wine and scary movies, and music has helped me through many moments of my life. I am so happy that you are here, and I can’t wait to tell you more about what this space means to me, and why I am so excited for you to be a part of it!
Citrus and Sun
This space is a personal blog flooded with my thoughts, observations, and life experiences that might all seem a little random, but that have stood out to me in some way. Part of the fun of reflecting and learning how to navigate this life is to zoom in on those small, random moments and thoughts throughout your day, and find meaning to them. We learn so much from the big memorable milestones in our lives, but the days between shape how we think, how we feel, and who we are as individuals.
Citrus and Sun represents the vision of finding zest in these every day experiences of our lives, and shining a helpful ray of light on them so that they are noticed. These day-to-day moments and seemingly “random” thoughts or daydreams that we have each day make up the majority of our lives, yet I have found myself personally “going through the motions” of my daily routines most days without even thinking about how these experiences and thoughts in my head make up who I am. So when I say shine a light on these moments and find some “zest,” I am referring to sprinkling them with energy, interest, and liveliness. Let’s spice up our days a bit and make them a little lighter and more meaningful!
So this is when we get to come together! I want to celebrate these moments with you when they happen, and I want to share mine with you, too! Use the hashtag #citrusandsunmoments when you have a moment in your day that stands out to you as meaningful. This could be something as small as having a really good cup of coffee, or watching your child laugh. Take a picture and share it on Instagram, or send me a message describing what happened, what you learned about yourself or someone else, how you felt, or any other thoughts that you might have had about that moment! Follow me on Instagram @stephanie_eiler to see my #citrusandsunmoments! Let’s shine a light on these moments and allow them to energize us throughout our days!
I hope that you can come to this space and find ways to add a little “citrus and sun” to your own experiences and daydreams, as I continue to do so in my own life through this blog! Listen to your heart, listen to your inner-dialogue, and listen to your life! They are all trying to teach you something about yourself every day!
Wishing you zest and light,
