Five months later...


I miss blogging. I look at the last update here, and I can't believe how much has happened since I stopped blogging. And yet at the same time... so much is still the same. When Matt and I became emergency foster parents earlier this year, I switched my blog to private... partly for privacy reasons and partly because I needed to limit distractions. I thought I would just leave it that way while we were in that unique situation, but then we went back to being a little family of three again and the blog stayed neglected. Mostly because that post still rings true in so many ways... life has been really hard this year. 

I don't know how much I will share about the past five months. Maybe I will go back and revisit some things... share some memories that I would have blogged about but didn't. Or maybe I will just start fresh. I just know that I want to blog again. I need to write. I need to remember the ups and downs of this journey so that I can see clearly how beautiful life is even when it feels like we have been swimming upstream endlessly in 2016. I need to reconnect with people who inspire and encourage me. I need to find my voice again, because maybe then I will be able to remember who I am. I need some way to finally push past this fog that I feel has settled around my brain permanently, and I know that just typing things out often helps. I need to force myself to pick up my camera and focus on life from a new perspective. Because when I do I see things like the photo above... and I see how incredibly blessed I truly am.

So... here I am. Welcome back to my little corner of the web. I am glad you are here.

  4. Sometimes I think that is part of the challenge with blogging... sharing your voice but questioning how much of the behind the scenes stuff you throw out to the blogosphere!

  8. Yay! Welcome!! It's interesting how you can go for a period of time without blogging and truly miss it! When I travel I go a week or two without blogging and it truly feels as though I am missing something!
