So this month I quit blogging. I’ve blogged every few days since January of 2008. Maybe I ran out of things to say. Maybe it was the flu that hit hard and then a thousand other things that piled up. Maybe I just got lazy.
As the days wore on and turned into a few weeks I really started to think about this space and whether I wanted to continue to pour out my thoughts here. I don’t have thousands and thousands of readers. I’m not doing amazing giveaways or giving profound advice or life changing gluten free recipes. I’m not a professional decorator, an adoption expert, or a child rearing guru. I began to feel like I didn’t really have anything worth giving. I am three years behind on printing my blog books. My kids are getting bigger. I’m no longer advertising for a thriving photography business.
But I just couldn’t throw in the towel. As I sat down to read through those early posts, I realized that I was blogging for me and my family. Not for my readers (however few they are…Hi Dad!) I was blogging to carve out a few memories. I was blogging to show my kids how much they mean to me and how fleeting are the days of their childhood.
So I’m moving forward. I hope you’ll stick around and read on occasion. We are working on a lot of projects in our house right now…some big…some small. I’m contemplating a business endeavor. We are making important decisions regarding Danny’s care. I’m still hunting down deals at Target and getting my craft on from time to time. My kids are still funny, and weird, and unruly. And I’ve promised myself that I will document it all.
See you soon!
