Whoa! It’s been a while…. Nice to see you again!
Did you see this post? After a [strong] cup of coffee…I decided I would be blogging again. Why? Because I love it. I love photography. I love blogging. I love sharing. I have so much to share. I love my blogging friends. I love learning. It’s a passion. BUT….this season of life is SO full! My days are SO FULL! And, I don’t want to miss any moments. I don’t want to miss time with my hubby or my kiddo…or my God! And, I don’t want my house to be a mess anymore! I want order. I want to focus on what’s important. So….I’m just not sure how often I’ll be blogging any more!
I would like to post every now and then…more often than once a year! Yikes! I do have things to share. But, I need to remember that a post that’s imperfect is better than no post. I tend to be a perfectionist and I’ll write a post (like this one that I wrote in September 2015) and then instead of posting it I’ll re-edit it and try to fix it. Instead, I just never post it! So, I’m working on figuring out where this blog fits into this season of life and trying to find time here and there to post a few of the things I think are important to share! [Often, it’s the questions I get most from friends and family and the things that are weighing on my heart that I want to share!]
A few years back [around when I started to disappear from this blog] I felt God tugging at my heart to stay home more. I read this book….. The Mission of Motherhood: Touching Your Child’s Heart for Eternityand really felt that it was time to spend more time being a wife and mother and stay home. I was feeling pulled in too many directions. I didn’t feel at peace. Our amazing “nanny” who helped me out with the house and with Samantha moved. Samantha started sleeping less. I ended up needing an appendectomy and during my time resting and recovering, during the off-season, I felt I needed to take a step back. Financially & creatively…I wanted to keep working. By my heart & my spirit….needed fewer jobs and to focus on what was important. Little did I know that FAITH was a HUGE piece of what was to come in that journey. [more to come on that].
During the last few years, I have researched and learned SO much about HOME, FAMILY, MOTHERHOOD, FAITH, HEALTH, etc. I have so much to share!!! And I have so much I want to talk to you all about. I want to hear from you and get more advice from you too!
