Hiatus is over!

You are going to have to forgive me for not keeping up with my blog for four long months!

Here are my excuses for why I've been slacking lately:

  1. I moved... that ain't easy, we all know it.
  2. I got busy... sure sometimes "busy" meant watching TV, but nonetheless, I was busy.
  3. I have a toddler.
  4. I wasn't feeling inspired. That's hard to say, but it's the truth. I would think of my blog, but not know what to write.
  5. My blog motives were wacky... I've wanted to blog for years, but I don't think I was approaching it correctly. My blog motives have now been refocused.
  6. I got pregnant. And then I lost my pregnancy in October at 8 weeks. It was devasting. 
  7. I have a lot of family in the area where we moved and we've been traveling to see them. 
  8. We all got sick... I'm still a little sick as I type this. 

So... I've had a few bumps in the road. One of the biggest issues was my blog motives. When you first start a blog you see all these awesome examples of blogs and you want to be just like them. But let me tell you firsthand, it takes a lot of time and hard work to get there. There isn't a fast fix to awesome blogger-ness. Some people claim there is, but those are gimmicks. And those gimmicks have helped them be successful. However, I didn't want to be about gimmicks. I want to be real. So refocusing on being real is my priority.

Thank you so much for your patience. I'm glad you're still here for the ride. I have some great stuff planned and the best news of all... it's a real part of me and what I stand for.
