Long time no see


For some time now, every time I think about this lonely little blog I’m overcome with a sense of foreboding and anxiety. What was once a beautiful outlet for me to share my musings on motherhood and life has become one more item on my never ending to-do list.

This makes me so sad.

I’d like to say that with the new year, I’m vowing to visit this space more often, to let my creative expression flow more frequently, but if I’m honest with myself, I just don’t know how likely that is.

See, this crazy thing called life and all it encompasses – motherhood, family, career, community – seems to creep in and get in the way of any sense of solitude that once existed for me.

So, for now, we’ll have to settle with the occasional letter to my children (which are recognizably always months past due) and a promise that I haven’t abandoned this space altogether. Thank you to those who continue to check in – I appreciate the encouragement to keep up with my writing.

Soon, I assure you, soon. There will be time to think again.

Until then…with love,



It’s good to be back.


I feel like I’ve been spinning out of control for the past few months.

Oh, who am I kidding? All of 2013 has been pretty much insane!

Work took over my life and between splitting my time telecommuting (read: logging in twice as many hours as I ever did going into an office everyday) and driving up to work (3 hours each way), precious moments to myself were few and far between. As a result, this little blog, and my sanity, really suffered.

But, I started a new job – closer to home, with more reasonable hours (for now at least) – and so I’m hoping that means I can carve out more time to write about the things that matter most to me – like my little family!

I owe you a 15 month Savannah update as well as very belated recap of her first birthday and my musings on leaving a job I loved for one that’s still yet to be determined. I promise those are on their way.

Until then, thanks for sticking with me through the madness. It’s good to be back.
