In 2005, I was pregnant with my 2nd child, which meant most nights I was up for hours at a time, unable to sleep. Not wanting to disturb my husband, often I would waddle down to our office and hop on the internet. Somewhere along the line, I discovered the world of blogs. I began to read several of them every single day (well, night) and truly felt like I knew these people! After a few months of this, I felt such a strong connection that I simply had to communicate with them, so I finally got brave enough to leave a comment. Much to my surprise, the authors often commented back to me! Before long, I was feeling a pull to start my own blog. Little did I know that simply writing about me and all that goes on in my little corner of the universe would allow me to have such a special connection to people I’d never met before…I’m happy to say I’m still friends with many of those same people today!
I got out of the blogging habit for some reason, but I really do miss it. I love to write and it’s always nice to connect with other people about the ups and downs and ins and outs of the crazy world we’re all trying to navigate through, so I thought I’d give it another go. (The funny part is, I started that first blog in the middle of the night and this time — what do you know? It’s 3am! We had a HUGE storm roll through and I couldn’t go back to sleep, so here I am!)
I’m looking forward to having a creative outlet again. Much like the old blog, it will probably be a mish-mash of stuff from my everyday life…usually just me trying to find a healthy balance and a small slice of serenity in the midst of chaos. Never a Dull Moment, Part 2, I guess you could say!
So, here we go — I’m excited to be documenting my journey once again…
