After a ridiculously long hiatus, I’m back at it! We’ll see how long this lasts, haha! But, really though, I have so many half-written thoughts that I would like to actually develop and share. A lot has happened since I last posted and there’s been a whole lot of learning and growing through it all. So strap in folks, you’re in for a ride and honestly, I have no idea where it’s going but I think it’s gonna be good.

Let the adventure begin!

What’s new?

Let’s see, it’s been four years since my last post. I won’t try to catch you up on what’s happened since because, well, are you really even interested? But, there have been a few significant things like I live in a new city, the hubs and I have new jobs, and we now have two kids. What?! Yeah, we like to see just how crazy we can make life and how much we can pack in in a very short amount of time. We’ve had our ups and downs like life always brings but more than anything, there’s been a lot of discovery, admittance, learning, processing, and growth on my part. So if you don’t mind (not that you have a choice because this is MY blog), I’ll be sharing a bit about some of those things. I’ll be sharing about my life and me.

What to expect…

Ha, um, in some ways, I don’t know. I’ll be sharing about life; the everyday things, the things observed, struggles, joy, ponderings, sadness, fun…you get the idea.

I’m kind of daring in that I’ll ask the tough questions, the awkward ones, sometimes the stupid ones, and the ones that stretch us and make us think. One thing I have come to realize is that some conversations are awkward or starting them can be awkward but I am totally happy to have them because how else can we learn if we don’t ask the questions?

And in a time when social media and being seen/known is such a big deal, we hide a lot. I promise to not hide. I promise to be as real as possible but that also means that you have to be ready to hear the tough stuff. Life is beautiful but it can also be ugly. We learn and grow because of the impact the good and bad, the beautiful and the ugly, the happy and the sad, make on our lives. I won’t sugar coat things or hide the fact that there are days I’d really love to just be a hermit and forget the world. But also know that I can talk A LOT about the beauty in life and that no matter what happens, life is a gift. My hope is that through it all, you’ll hear that message: Life is a gift.

Check it out!

You’ll find that one of the pages is called Bookshelf. This is, in some ways, an accountability thing for me but I’m sharing books I’ve been reading! I used to be an avid reader but things got busy and I had two kids so sleep became more of a priority than reading. But I’m trying to get back at it! Finding good books can be hard though which is why I’m sharing what I’ve been reading, just in case you need some suggestions. I’d also love to hear your suggestions!

Another one is Food and Travel, two great passions of mine. You’ll get to see some of my favorite places that I am constantly daydreaming about, and the food I devoured and now drool over when I think about it.

Lastly, my Portfolio. My pictures are far from being anything worth bragging about but I do enjoy photography! There’s absolutely no order to it and they are taken from all over. So take a look now and then (I’ll always be adding to it) and don’t judge too harshly over my lack of skills.

All I ask…

Remember that my writing is from my perspective and the things I’m experiencing. Respect that it’s my life. If I offend you, well, I’m not entirely apologetic about that. I’m not saying I will do it intentionally, I just don’t think people know how to handle being offended anymore. It’s not an attack against you, you just didn’t like it and that’s ok! There will be things you don’t like and that’s ok. Though I hope you like at least most of what I write.

So friends, and strangers, follow along for the randomness that is my mind and may my ramblings spark something in you. Even if it’s boredom. I mean, at least that’s something…but we’ll hope for world-changing, life impacting, mind-blowing passion. What is it they say…shoot for the moon because even if you miss you land among the stars? I know, I’m ridiculous and this post just needs to end…
