A Little Update

So it’s been a few years now since I launched St. Louis Dad and I got to say, it has been a fun ride so far. I notice that I haven’t been writing as much original content as I did in the past. It has mainly been sponsored content and nothing too personal. hope to change that and start getting back into writing about being a dad as well as the other exciting things going on in my little world.

For starters you may have noticed a new logo for the website. Do ya like it? I just did a quick Google search and found a nice St. Louis stamp that I could license and switch to make it my own to some degree. So that’s what I did. I plan on making a few other cosmetic changes to the site but nothing too crazy. I enjoy the simplicity that I have going on here, so I’m not wanting to change much. How about you? Is there something you would like me to change? Want me to write more about something specific? Write to me in the comments!

It’s crazy to think that this little idea of a blog would become what it has a little over fiver years later. But that was kind of the point anyways, to build something that many people would see. I hope to do some more writing about what we have been doing during this coronavirus pandemic and how we have managed our sanity (lots of hiking). I figured a quick little update about the site would be better served before I dive into the deep end.

And just to add a little excitement to this post, today is World Heart Day and I had a nice little coincidence with it that I realized today while looking at the trending hashtags of the day.

Lately I have been learning how to balance my chakras. Hocus pocus or whatever you may think I wanted to try something different. By chance this morning I grabbed my green aventurine stone, this stone is meant to be comforting and a heart healer. It helps balance your heart charka and brings emotional peace. As it turns out, today is World Heart Day and I guess I could not have picked a better stone to carry with me today. 🌎💚 . . . . . . #chakra #meditation #love #chakras #spiritual #energy #spirituality #aura #chakrabalancing #thirdeye #zen #buddha #peace #namaste #mindfulness #nature #selflove #life #consciousness #guidance #universe #goodvibes #art #soul #enlightenment #happy #positivity #mantra #balance #worldheartday

That to me is pretty crazy. Grabbing the heart stone on World Heart Day has got to be some divine happenings. Hopefully I will write more about chakras and what they mean to me, so that you can follow along with some of my weird and out there beliefs. It’s not something that I have really done a lot of in the past, so I am putting myself out there for y’all!

So that’s about all I got for this quick little update. I have already started on some drafts for some more original posts. Be on the look out for those, subscribe to the blog or follow me on the various social media I am active on, and if all else fails, bookmark the site!


My name is Richie and I am a 37 year old father of two, a daughter and son. I am married to a beautiful woman named Destiny. She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network security administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
