Well, hello there! Gee, I miss blogging. Like really miss it. How it used to be. The connection. The memory keeping. Part journaling. Part catharsis. I’ve felt the itch for a long, LONG time, but everything else is more important. Or at least it seems to be. Blogging isn’t exactly a quick thing. You have to take photos (which is kind of a “duh” thing to say, but lately I forget! Living in the moment is a great thing, but so is memory keeping.) Then you have to download, re-size, edit and upload all of your photos and then, of course, take the time to type out your thoughts. Between work and family, there doesn’t seem to be much time for it. And it’s easy, so easy, to blow it off. (Hence the two and a half year hiatus!) But as I was looking back through old posts I was grateful for each time I made the effort. I can’t tell you how many of these small moments I would have otherwise forgotten. I’m determined to make the time. It’s worth it.
There has been so much that has changed since I last posted. The two biggest being that we added a new baby to our family (!!!) and we made a cross country move (which I still have incredibly mixed feelings about). I’ll be sharing more about these and other updates soon. In the meantime, I’ve redesigned the blog. It’s now more simple and clean – all of which speak to the minimalist in me. I have a different direction in mind for this space. Above all, I want it to be personal. My own thoughts and experiences. My own stories. Hope you’ll join me.
