quote for the week (!)

I'm still here! I know I've been awfully quiet as of late. I've had a tremendously stressful couple of weeks.

Some days I feel like I need to remind myself that it's ok that all I did was 'just breathe' for the day. Other days I feel like I need to tell myself that that is all I should do for the day!

I wanted to come back to this space and tell you how wonderfully things were going. How I've gotten my rhythm back. How I've been crafting and cleaning and cooking and delighting in every day life. But that's not entirely true. There have been moments of that, close to full days of that - but mostly I'm still just working on getting by.

I've wanted to come here - for many, many reasons. To force myself to reconnect, to pay attention, to take it slow, to savor it, to capture it, to write it down.

Some days I have so much to say that the very thought of coming here to get it out is exhausting. Other days I have less than nothing to say. Or things that are so dreary that I wouldn't want to write about them anyway.

I know this is nothing new, but my plan (haha) is to come back to this space more. This week. Even if it's just with snapshots, because honestly, I'm tired of my days blurring together. Work, sleep, cook, kids, work, blah, blah, blah, blah. Blah.

But enough about blah, blah, blah. Overall, I am doing well. Exhausted. But mostly well. The baby is growing. I am certainly growing! Spring is coming. There is so much goodness right around the corner.

I am so ready for it. See you soon!
