I can’t believe I took that much time off blogging. It wasn’t intentionally, it just kinda happened. Life got so busy, but hopefully I’m back for a little bit, because I really missed this community. I took a step away to focus more on work and family, but I realized that this blogging business is such a good release and so rewarding. It’s a part of me now- my own little outlet to let the thoughts pour out.
As an added bonus from stepping away from the blogging scene, I’ve realized how important it is to take time for myself. I cannot be the best mom, wife, or worker if I don’t take care of my needs and give myself a little time to do my own thing. Being a mom is a huge, HUGE part of me now, but I want to be more than just that. So I’m hoping to make the blogging thing a more regular thing from here on out.
So a little life update, since it’s been awhile. My sweet boy just turned one!!! That literally blows my mind! I feel like I was just pregnant with him. I know it’s cliché, but it’s true- the days are long, but the years are short. Somedays feel like an eternity but then crazy enough the months fly by. Beau is in full on toddler mode. He walks, he chatters, he has opinions. Pretty much the most fun and challenging stage yet!
We also sold our house and bought a new one! It was so much work and a huge reason I haven’t been able to blog. Doing both at the same time was rough. So many open houses and walk-throughs. It is no easy feat to keep a house clean with a baby. Plus, lots of paperwork and stress. But now, we’ve officially moved to the beach and couldn’t love it more. It was worth all the headache. We can walk to the beach, which is a dream come true! The house itself needs some updating, but I love that we will be able to make it our own. And I seriously love having all the bedrooms on the same level. I hated Beau being upstairs and us downstairs (sidenote: one stories are so hard to find).
