Just Checking In

I think it's safe to say that I have officially become the worst blogger ever!  This year has kinda gotten away from me.  I guess having two kids will do that you.  Anyway, I just wanted to say that we are still here.  We're just busy with life, work, and kids and I've sorta put this blog on the back burner, but that's about to change.

I used to blog because I had this vision of tons of followers.  Now all that seems silly.  In fact, "how to" blogs annoy me.  I think they're somewhat arrogant, and whether or not it's intentional, I feel like they put a lot of pressure on the rest of us.  I read blogs and think "I should have more about my fitness journey on here," or "Maybe I should do a home tour," or  "Oh, how about giving readers some money saving tips."  Yeah, none of that is going to happen.  Heck - I don't even have my almost nine month old daughter on homepage.

I'm letting that vision go, and I'm giving myself some grace.  This blog has become my family's memory book.  It's a precious treasure. It's our story.  Of course this means that you will find fitness topics from time to time, or pictures of projects around the house, or even money saving strategies that work for us, because all of those things are part of our journey as a family.  However, you will not find "how to's" or any vain attempts to gain a bigger audience. This will be raw, the highs and low of parenthood, the thoughts and heart of a mother.

I really have so many fun posts started.  Some of them back all the way up to February, and I'm not even joking.  Hopefully, I'll be able to get caught up very soon.  In the meantime, I'm going to make an effort to document the fun, crazy, and even boring moments of this current season.  Then I'll take time to back track.

This is a weird post, but it's something that has been floating around in my head for a few weeks.
