It's been a long time.
I kind of needed the space there for a while. I did some soul work, embraced my family, started a photography business (and quickly burned myself out). I always meant to come back to the blog....but time gets away from us so quickly. I've been pretty addicted to facebook (still am) and found that enough to feel like I was connected. I haven't had a lot to say, though I've had a lot to share. The kids are getting older and I heard more and more often "Please don't put that on the blog". So I didn't. And for a long time I wasn't sure what to put on the blog if it wasn't the kids. I wasn't sure what was left of me for a long time. I never seemed to have time for scrapbooking (the last pages I did I already shared here), most of my photography was for clients, and, well....Well.
We're different. We're a different family. Stronger in many ways, still tender in others. We've been through some stuff together the past few years. We've laughed, we've cried....but it's been good.
But look at me! Still with the sentence fragments and the ellipses, still with the rambling. Some things just don't change that much.
What's brought me back? Fun. I signed the fam-jam up today for the 2013 Summer Bucket List Challenge hosted by The Happy Family Movement. My old school bookmarking of fun summer ideas has evolved into a full-blown pinterest addiction and I've had fun over the past year or so pinning summer ideas, so when I saw this challenge posted by Becky Higgins today, I knew it was just right for us. The family will make our bucket list and share it tomorrow, and we'll see if I can figure out this blog thing all over again. It's kind of scary, but in a day before the first day of school way. Good things. Good things.
Here's where we find out if I remember how to do a badge properly.... ;)
