I always felt deep down that it would be a temporary hiatus because I really enjoyed sharing our lives with family and friends . . . you know, kind of the reason why I started this blogging adventure in 2014.
But the problem is I can't really juggle . . . literally or figuratively.
I recently e-mailed my blog editor at the magazine to tell her the bad news, and she was so supportive. She reminded me that I can always submit a post when it feels right, and I was so relieved to hear that she was open to working with me in the future : )
I thought long and hard about this whole blogging thing, and I genuinely missed it. I don't make a dime for the time and energy I put into it, but I love it! My blog has become like a scrapbook of our lives, and it makes my heart sad to see there is a large chunk missing. August - February has been a whirlwind of good and bad, but I don't want to ignore these "growing pains."
So with that meant-to-be-brief-but-never-is explanation . . . I'm back!!!
I'm back to blogging about the daily things that seem so small in the grand scheme of life but make for some of the most beautiful memories. I'm back to blogging about my struggles and frustrations as a mom in hopes that a few of you (and I might be exaggerating when I say a few) might read this blog and relate. I'm back to sharing a ton of photos of my curly-haired kid so my nana can double-tap that iPhone screen to her little heart's delight!
I'm so happy to be back : ) and I hope you're happy about that too!
