So… I’m back? Maybe…

By Mars / January 17, 2017

I can honestly tell you that I didn’t think I would ever write another blog post… and I was fine with it. For 5 of the past 6 months, I didn’t miss it. I was burnt out. But many times, I’ve found myself wondering if y’all were still out there. I wondered what y’all were doing and about your projects and who’s preggo and who’s getting married. I didn’t miss my blog as much, but I missed yours. Then, in the past two weeks, I’ve found myself subconsciously writing blog posts in my head and wanting to show you what we’re working on. So I’m back, sorta kinda…

At the moment, it feels easier to tell you about the things that I don’t know, like…

  • I don’t know how often I’ll post. My goal is once a week, but definitely not as often as I was before. Hopefully, limiting the posts will allow me to keep this as a fun hobby and keep quality posts. I do not have enough time or material to do quality posts three times a week.
  • I don’t know what I’ll write about. It could be the same or Life on Mars with recipes, projects, room reveals and DIY. But buyer beware, it could also be a lot of ADORABLE baby pics and all that comes with it (diapers, baby food, the color of his last spitup… it’s all fair game).

See? I just can’t help myself.

  • I don’t know what the future of this blog looks like in the immediate or long-term. I’m not putting pressure on myself with any expectations.
  • and I usually don’t know what day of the week it is.

Here’s what I do know…

  • I know my priorities. I am a full-time wife and mother, part-time, at-home employee and sometime blogger. I intend to remember that this time around. I got things a little backwards before.
  • I know I am doing what I have always been called to do. Being a mother just fits. I’ve never been happier, more content and more at peace with my day-to-day life.

So, that’s basically where we are and what’s up. Here’s what I know is coming up on the blog in the next few weeks… The nursery reveal! How many times have I promised that? Well, it’s actually finished and that only happened last week even though Jack is almost 6 months old. I am going to be 31 in a couple of weeks and I’m not overly excited about it. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve come to terms with being 30, so 31 is a real wake-up call. But with birthdays comes presents and I’m pumped about two of my presents. I’ll tell you more soon.

I hope you’re still out there. What’s new? What have I missed in your life? Fill me in…
