For as long as I can remember, I’ve liked to write. I write to help me think through things, I write to help me process emotions, I write to share funny stories. I have journals going back to fourth grade when my biggest concerns were what I would eat for an after school snack or what I would spend my $5 allowance on. As I’ve gotten older, my writing has been on and off. Before I met the husband I wrote a lot, so worried that since I hadn’t met the love of my life by my sophomore year of college that I would never find anyone. After I met him I really didn’t write much until this blog, which I started to share our experiences dealing with starting our family.
I take this blog pretty seriously. Many of you have shared that you love reading it, and I am so grateful for that. Seriously. It means a lot to me to know that people are interested in our story and our lives. We’ve been through a lot over the past 3.5 years and if there’s a positive besides our beautiful son, it’s that we’ve met some cool people and formed some awesome relationships. This blog has been a great tool to connect with people I don’t know very well (or at all).
But lately I’ve been struggling. Lately writing has become more of an obligation and less of something I look forward to. Lately I’ve been racking my mind to think about what I could possibly blog about, and I feel like the content of the blog is getting watered down. So for that reason I’m going to take a break. I don’t have any intentions of ending this permanently, just until things pick back up with our adoption or until I’m inspired again. It may be a few weeks, it may be a few months, it may be longer than that. If anyone wants to send me to a nice beachfront resort to help me get inspired, let’s talk.
I don’t really know how to end this, but I feel like posts are always better with pictures, so here’s a picture. The husband is going to be mad at me for making this public 🙂
PS While I’m not blogging, I would still LOVE to talk to you about infertility, or adoption, or home making beauty products, or natural birthing. Those are my things. Hit me up!
