Back to Blogging


Here I am again, always coming back to this space when I crave creativity and something for myself. The past few years have been quite the journey. From the pandemic, some difficult family dynamics, finding out we were having twins, buying a house, moving with newborn twins, then navigating the first year postpartum with twins and a toddler, it's been a lot.  

One consistent regret I often think about is quitting blogging. A lot of the 'blog friends' I made during the time I was consistently posting here, in the early blog days, are now successful influencers doing this as their job. While the path I took has given me a beautiful life I always wanted, I do find myself wondering where I would be if I hadn't stopped. For a couple years now I've found myself pulled to return to blogging, I think about it all the time. It's not that I don't know what to share, I'm drowning in ideas of what to post. The truth is that I'm scared. Mostly the fear of what people will think of me, or say about me. And also the fear of failure. But I think I am to the point now, where I've learned I would rather embarrass myself than always regret not trying, and question "what if?" 

So let's do this. 2023 is going to be the year of me. I've sort of lost myself in the past few years and I'm ready to figure out who I am now. Who am I as a mother, but also who am I as an individual. I am hopeful that spending time on something that is just for me, that brings me joy and fills my cup, will help remind me of who I am and lead me to who I am meant to become. I feel that I've lost a bit of the sparkle I once had, the joy and the zest for life. So here's to finding that again this year. I'd love to have you along for the ride.
