Coming Home

July 23rd, 2015 - 

I don’t know how to come back to this blog but I’m pretty sure I have to.

I started a few other blogs since abandoning this one but it wasn’t much fun for me. Their focus was more narrow and I wasn’t getting excited about them at all. I guess what I still want is a free-for-all format where I can write about anything and not feel like I’m cultivating a specific audience or maintaining a certain narrative. Which, somehow, I got it into my head was something I wanted to try.

Lately I’ve stumbled upon a few really great blogs and read them completely, which has been really inspiring. Many of them aren’t updated anymore either and I guess that made me kind of sad. I didn’t like to think of all the bloggers out there, like me, who neglected or quit their work. Even if their reasons were good, my mind just wandered back here and I couldn’t understand why I left when I kn0w how much I love blogging and would still find it rewarding.

You’ll notice many big changes since the last time I posted in 2013.

  • My hair is peach
  • I’m pregnant
  • We have a house
  • We have two dogs
  • I bought a new camera
  • I’m working to start an Etsy shop (to help pay off the camera…)

We went to LA (and Disneyland!) last fall for our big annual trip, but nothing like that is happening again this year because we’re prepping for baby. Instead, we’re taking a smaller trip to Tennessee in a few weeks to eat BBQ and look at Elvis’ house. I’m really excited about it, but I do spend an awful lot of time thinking about when I’ll get to take my next trip to a Disney park. (More so than even when I was a kid.) Probably because most of the people I follow on Instagram are there all the time and it looks REALLY FUN. Our honeymoon at WDW in 2013 reignited my interest in Disney for sure. Right now I’m re-reading the Harry Potter books as well and that’s been a lot of fun. Having a kid on the way is scary, because there are a lot of overwhelming stories out there about poop, health and behavioral issues, etc., but it’s fun to think about all the imaginative and fun things they’ll get into as well.

We’re having a girl, by the way. 😊

So, that’s it for now, but I’ll be popping back in from now on and I just didn’t want it to seem sudden if anyone’s still paying attention.
