It’s 2018! Good riddance to 2017. Remember that scene at the end of Lord of the Rings where Frodo and Sam have just thrown the ring in the fire? That’s how I feel about 2017. I even found a meme on Google about it!
My goal this year is returning to blogging. I took time off after giving birth to my daughter in November 2016. When I originally planned my time away I said it would be a few months and I’d be back at it, in the swing of things. Ha! I suppose lots of first time parents are idealists like that. Those few months went by and I was just figuring out life with a newborn. I had no energy to blog. I barely made it through the day! By summer I was up to my ears in work & travel and life with a not quite newborn, not quite toddler. By the end of summer there was a family medical crisis. So…more time off. There’s always something, right? Honestly I still don’t have life figured out but we’ve got a semi-routine and we take life one day (sometimes one hour) at a time. My daughter is more toddler than baby these days (I’m going to pause to cry a little) which gives me more opportunity to rejoin the blog world. I don’t know what this will look like but it will definitely involve cute animals, a cute baby and as always…the shenanigans that happen when you combine those two. It’s likely to be a slow, rocky start but that’s in keeping with most things in life!
Until we meet again. 🙂
