The past few months I've been going back and forth with shutting the blog down, simply because I'm less and less motivated to post. A ton of my family and friends used to blog all the time, which is why I got into it a few years back. Almost all of them (the ones I know in real life anyways) have stopped, probably because life gets so busy, and let's face it - people don't really blog much to update people on their lives anymore because of things like Instagram that do the job much easier.
Fast forward to last night, I came across my first blog book that Steve had printed for me as a gift, (I probably hadn't looked at it since I opened it Christmas morning a few years ago honestly), and I read the words that I wrote as a 21 year old brand new mom. I read as I struggled with the adjustment to becoming a mom, absolutely confused with motherhood yet so in love with my new baby. I read about my complete excitement and joy that I was able to be a housewife & stay at home mom. Not only was it so, so nice to read back on things I would have otherwise forgotten, it was amazing to see how much I have changed in these past 3.5 years. The difference between 21 & 25 is incredible! (Quite humbling to read too... I have said some silly things here at times!) In summary, I immediately changed my thoughts on shutting my blog down, and was inspired to keep up with it. In the future I do plan on making it private as the kids get older, but for now I will just be trying to do basic updates: Milestone ages, trips/other important events, & maybe some random thoughts here & there.
Thanks for still reading, if you still do, & for all your sweet comments & love that I've gotten here through the years. Thanks for putting up with my consistent inconsistency!
