P1010898Wow, it’s been a while since I made the time to write. I’ve got plenty to share, but it seems that we’ve had so much real life going on around here lately I’ve been focusing on other things…and I think that’s good. It all started shortly after DB got back and we had a wave of sickness roll through the house for a good 3 weeks…so many tissues perished. Then we were back on track, but some goals at work got in the way, and are still in the way. In fact, I usually don’t even take the time to really sit down in front of my computer and read blogs or edit photos or even check Instagram on my phone.

And in that time we celebrated two years of marriage, learned that the Bear likes a wider variety of food than he lets on, started (finally) talking about the honeymoon we need to take, and started gearing up for our move. I’ve also knit, baked, cooked, photographed, and bought new clothes, all of which I hope I have time to sit down and share with you soon. I admire the bloggers who plan their posts in advance and have them all set to go throughout the week. I was starting to go that route, but like I said, real life started happening and my focus has been on squeezing in family time and not blogging time. I miss doing this though. One of my goals this year has been to write more, and this blog is a big part of that. Hopefully, as we transition towards summer I can find a balance again. I like it here. I like being able to keep track of my domestic productivity and share photos with friends and family who are all so far away. But I’m also learning to be patient with myself and not beat myself up when I can’t get it all done. I’ll keep figuring it out, and I’ll try and tell you more about it soon.
