I was wondering if after all these years you’d still read me….
See what I did there?! I’ve actually been spending the last few nights thinking of the best way to transition back into my blog after an almost SIX YEAR absence (yikes!) and all I can think of is to give a little life update and jump right back on in, so here goes…
In the last 6 years
all of the majority of our weekend renovation projects have taken a bit of a back seat since we’ve added 2 sweet girls to our little family. I’ve spent at least a solid third of those almost 2200 nights sleeping in a chair, orrrrrr maybe not at all (food allergies, reflux, total elimination diets and newborn “normalness” are all to blame for that one) but I’m finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel (all hail the miraculous dock-a-tot and co-sleeping). I’ve also traded in my tiny, carefree, sun-loving convertible for a mini van that I actually love – I still can’t believe the space we have for allllll the things we schlep back and forth for even a trip to the grocery store. What also helps me love it is that said convertible is merely “hibernating” in the garage… And I’m starting to finally feel like a real, live “grown-up”.
I’m the most tired I’ve ever been in my entire life… and I’m also the happiest :) But no lie, being responsible for these sweet little humans is the hardest thing I’ve ever done! Though I love how my life has changed in ways I never even imagined my main goal for 2019 is to try and carve out a little “me time”. I’m trying to be realistic and start small – with a 5 and 1.5 year old I realize there are only so many hours in the day – but I’m aiming to find time for a little luxury here and there. Believe it or not, I’m actually luxuriously laying in bed now as Hubby is handling bath time and I’m trying real hard to ignore the two big piles of laundry next to me that still need to be put away. I’ve only been called in 3 times so far tonight, ha. I’ll take what I can get!
I’m looking forward to updating the good ol’ blog again with some fun DIY projects (my
to-do list is SO long), family & kid friendly things: think toys, vacations, etc. (…you thought we were big Disney fans pre-kids…) and everyday randomness I hope you and enjoy and I don’t want to forget. Thanks for giving me another chance!
….At least I can say that I’ve tried ;)
