Guess Who’s Back…Back Again…

Over the last six or so years I have started and stopped so many blogs that honestly it has become a little ridiculous, and maybe a bit embarrassing. I have tried everything from a style blog, to a geek niche blog, to a lifestyle blog, to most recently attempting to blog about our newlywed life. As you can surmise, I would eventually grow bored, disenchanted, or extremely busy and thus, stop blogging. Why this is, I don’t know. Perhaps it’s that I put too much pressure on myself, or set my expectations too high, or have a lazy side that always rears it’s ugly head. Who knows if this time around will be any different, but I am going to give it a go….yet again. Ever since we found out I was pregnant I have had A LOT of thoughts rolling around in my head and I need a way to get them out. Thoughts about life, thoughts about pregnancy, thoughts about what the future holds, and thoughts about what show I should next binge watch on Netflix (apparently Stranger Things is the way to go according to everyone I know).

Additionally, my husband and I have a lot of family and friends who live far away but want to stay involved and know more about what is going on in our lives, particularly since we are procreating. This blog will serve that purpose and make it easier to connect with those we love and make them feel as though they are with us.

This blog will definitely be more of an online journal. I intend to write about anything and everything going on in my life, and the lives of our family. That could be politics, an awesome restaurant we checked out, updates on pregnancy, or how our dogs keep eating and destroying all of our furniture (true story). Some posts may be short, while others will be long and verbose. Sometimes there will be nothing but iPhone pictures (or if I remember to use it, amateur pictures from my DSLR), other times it might be a wall of text. To keep the pressure low I am not going to set a schedule for when to write/post. I will do so whenever I have something to say or it strikes my fancy. And there likely will never be a cohesive theme for this space except for whatever is going on in my/our lives.

If you decide to follow along and read my random thoughts and updates, that’s totally cool. If you don’t, that’s cool too. Welcome to my little corner of the Interwebs. Enjoy your stay.
