Grand Cayman Withdrawal

Our little family of three just returned from Grand Cayman. Yes, I'm having withdrawal. We have friends who live there and this was our fourth visit. Spoiled much? Absolutely. 

This time was extra special because their son is only a few weeks younger than Cora and it was their first meeting. It was also Cora's first time flying and traveling further than three hours to see family and no, she didn't do great. It was 30% angelic gazing out the plane window and 70% kicking seats, throwing Cherrios and forcing the people behind us to keep picking up her "Ellie" wubbanub. May God bestow a very special Christmas blessing on those poor passengers in Jesus' name. 

No, it does not get any cuter.

It was also Cora's first time at the beach. This is what she thought of it. 

Don't worry, she got used to it after a few days and the next thing we know she's renting beach chairs and ordering pina coladas. Figures.

We did the Outbreak room and I felt exactly like Brad Pitt in World War Z. Honestly. The same experience.

While the babe was sunbathing, Philip and I took the time to attempt Locked Inn, our friends' escape room business. We came about two minutes short of success but it was a blast. If you're Cayman-bound or stopping by on a cruise ship, it should definitely be on your list of activities. 

On our final night there, we risked toddler tantrums to go - all three - to a beachside restaurant and watch the sunset over dinner. I really have no words to describe how fantastic it was - or photos that do it justice - but here's trying.

No tantrums. Only winning at life.

Thank you, random restaurant guy, for offering to get a shot of all three of us!

Hi there! First, thank you so much stopping by. I love you for taking your time to check out my website. 

This is going to be a place where I just shoot straight. Like, maybe even embarrass myself a little with exposure and vulnerability. I hope you don't mind. This won't be the place to look for perfect writing either, btw. This is my thought process vomited on the page at lightning speed. Because I'd rather spend my time and mental energy creating authentic, effective brand writing for other people's businesses. I feel like you can appreciate that. 

Ok, now that we've set expectations, I'll proceed with more of what you're probably looking for here - who is this Lindsey Wagnon and why has she invaded a tiny corner of my world via social media, a search engine, word of mouth, etc?

Well, I'm a wife and mom, for starters. I am a Christian and part of Elevation Church in Charlotte, N.C. Of course, there are stories behind all those facts which I'll continue to open up about here (shamelessly tempting you to check back later). 

I also work full-time for Movement Mortgage as a marketing communications manager which is where I practice much of what I've learned about marketing content, branding, digital marketing, marketing campaigns, SEO, analytics, copywriting and so-on. Before that, I worked for a lifestyle magazine doing mostly fluffy feature writing and before that I was a professional blogger when blogs were first becoming a thing, oh, about a dozen years ago. Little known fact - I had a personal blog on one of the first versions of Wordpress around 2006 - 2008ish called Runner's High that I was obsessed with.

Yep, I was part of that original SEO blog craze that was big business for a hot minute.

Obviously, writing and content creation are my forte - particularly the kind that involve strategy, some business sense and a large dose of persuasion. Which is what brings us here today. You may or may not be in need of someone to take the controls of your digital strategy, website content, email marketing, etc., but either way, I am glad you landed here and I hope you feel you gained something worthwhile from it. 

If you're looking for practical marketing tips, I offer free training on my Facebook page and Instastories, so you’ll want to check those out for sure (icons linked below).

That's all for now!
