Before I get more into posting about this weekend I wanted to take a minute to stop and talk about this blog and what it is in my life.

I started Beautifully Pure when I was sixteen years old. I was still in school with no drivers license, and few friends. I was lonely and needed a creative outlet, and loved blogging before, so why not start a new one? I chose the name somewhat hastily - it fit what I wanted my style to be, and sounded very Christian.

Since then I have got my drivers license, graduated high school, started working full time, and made numerous new friends. This blog just doesn't fit me and my life anymore.

I'm not the same shy, mousey girl I was three (or even one!) year ago. I've learned that being a "good" Christian girl doesn't mean I have to let myself get walked on. I've learned how to stand up for myself, and done incredible things, to boot! I still can't believe I drove nine hours by myself to meet a bunch of online friends in strange city!

So, to keep this blog in line with my life, and so I can continue to share my life honestly, Beautifully Pure is undergoing a re-branding. The new name is "The Wildwood Flower." I'm in the process of switching the domain over (don't worry! Beautifully Pure will auto-redirect, so no need to update your book marks!), and I have a few tweeks to make to the new layout yet, but this is tenitively how things will be looking around her from now on!

Thank you so much to everyone who's followed me these past almost three years, and I hope you'll stick around for this new chapter in this lil' ol' blogs life. *kisses*


  1. So happy for you, and proud! I'm undergoing a bit of a 'life rebranding' too so I get you. So far so good Katie! Looking forward to the changes in not only your blog but in the 'new you' as well. Take care love :)

  2. I think it's great that you're continuing your blog. I really like the new design and I can't wait to see where your blog goes! Anyways, love the new design!

  3. I love the new name and design. I look forward to what the future of the new blog and the new you!!

  4. ALSO I am in love with the dress from your sidebar photo -- where is it from?

  5. I am looking forward to your future posts Katie! Its amazing how God changes us and makes us a new creation in Christ through Him drawing us to Himself. I can totally relate, I am not the same person I was when I graduated high school 3 years ago and even a year ago. God has been changing me for the better.

    God bless!

  6. Yay! The new design is so lovely! I'm so glad that we got to meet in Pittsburgh - definitely one of the best experiences of my summer! <3


  7. I'm so glad for you, you've done a great job. I love the new name and your new blog design. It really suits you, the new name :)
