Well I’m back. I’m sorry for taking such a long break, that never was my intent but sometimes, a break is good for the soul. I come back to you a year older, yes, I celebrated a birthday last month. I come back to you another year married, we celebrated an anniversary this month and I come back to you a bit lighter. This weight is both literal and figurative. If you haven’t seen me in a while I’m a few pounds down…not to worry, nothing is wrong with me. The hubby and I have tried a new way of eating called Keto (whick I’ll tell you more about in the coming weeks) and it seems to agree with us both. It is a daily choice we make to stay on track and yes, it is a choice but one that we’re willing to make for that feisty preschooler we have. The kid has asked me to no longer call her a toddler, which actually she is no longer in that defined title. Usually that stops at the age of three and since the kid had a half birthday during my break well, she’s now in a category all on her own! My preschooler has kept me busy to say the least and with the holidays almost upon us, it’ll just get more hectic. Now is the time to set those family traditions that hopefully she’ll remember for a lifetime. We’re fortunate to have booked a few events that I hope will excite her and remind us of what the true meaning of Christmas is all about. So I’m back and look forward to connecting with you all in the coming weeks and months.
Three years ago today I sat down for the first time in front of my computer to write. I had no idea what I would really write about or honestly if anyone would read my blog. All I knew is that I was pregnant, in my third trimester and had this crazy idea. My husband who is my biggest supporter purchased the domain name, my good friend who is my go to techie helped me set it all up and there was no turning back.
It is hard to believe that today is my three year anniversary of blogging because so much has changed. I went from a scared pregnant woman to a mom of a toddler. I went from questioning could I do this to being confident in my parenting choices and decisions. I went from doing what I wanted when I wanted, to being mindful of this little person that was now my responsibility and changing my life in ways I had no idea she would. I went from searching for a group of mommies who were in the same situation as I, to creating a group of mommy friends that I wouldn’t change for the world!
Life, regardless of the stage has ups and downs. I’m grateful to be in a place where I can sit behind a screen and write about mine. I’m grateful for my upbringing so that I can share those ideals with my little one. I’m grateful for you, each one of you taking the time to read, comment, send me a text or email letting me know that you got something out of my blog. And of course I’m grateful to my hubby and the kid. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have the content to keep doing what I’m doing.
