Oh yeah... I have a blog.


Why hello there.  

It's been a while... months actually.  But you see, recently life has shifted a bit... things look a little different around here.  Instead of blogging I've been...
 

...traveling to distant lands...
 

...singing lullabys...
 

...caressing soft cheeks...

 
...picking up toys...

 
...changing (and wearing) poopy diapers...

 
...playing dress up...

 
...eating snow...
 

...playing with Little Cat...


...celebrating birthdays...

 
...savoring every.single.second...
 
Time isn't as abundant as it used to be... sleep no longer comes freely... and it's impossible to pull out the laptop without tiny hands begging to jab at the keyboard. 
 
But I wouldn't trade it for the world. 
 
While yes, life looks entirely differently around here, I still hope to carve out a little smidgen of time to visit this space every so often.  Blogging has always been a joy for me... a way to capture special moments and memories... an idea book of creative thoughts... a place for raw, challenging vulnerability... and a capsule of real-life stories. 
 
And man, oh man, do I have stories.  Stories that I desperately hope to start sharing in the coming weeks.  And yes... most of them invlove a ridiculously adorable little girl named Zara:)
 
Stay tuned...

Yayyyyy!!! Definitely kept wondering recently how life was going with you - and all except for the poop, it sounds like it's going pretty brilliantly. Looks like you have an instagram account that I could be following along on, any interest in sharing that handle?

Ohmygoodness, those cheeks!!!! As a friend of our family says, those are eatin' material. She is precious. Hope everyone is adjusting well. And that first picture of you holding her? Perfect.

It's good to see you back on here, but you certainly have a good reason for not being on here as much as you use to be. We definitely understand!

So incredibly happy for you and your new addition. Zara is beautiful and I know you are over the moon. I can't wait to hear more about life with her.
