making a commitment


When I first started blogging back in October, I had know idea what I was doing. Seriously. Up until that point I was only a blog reader. That's it. Then after thinking about it for a loooong time{and coming to the realization that I literally write blog posts in my head} I decided, maybe I would try it. I certainly wasn't looking for followers{truthfully I didn't even really know what that meant}, I wasn't even sure if I wanted anyone to read my words. It was something that I would do casually for me, ya know. I know many people blog for many different reasons. I wasn't looking to try and update my family back home{actually I would freak if any of them even knew about my lil corner, here}...I wasn't looking for a journal for my children to read when they get older{although there are many posts that I plan to print out & put in their scrapbooks}...I just wanted to write. I live in city where I don't know many people & my group of friends is extremely small. I work out of home & miss, very much, the coworker converstion, & I certainly miss my girls nights out. I guess, looking back, I was defiantely looking to connect. And I have. I can not even explain to you how much I have gotten & taken out of reading your blogs....feeling not alone, is a powerful thing, & really helped me tremendously....and your comments that you all have left me have totally made me happy, excited, tearful...to feel understood has given me back alot of what I have been missing.

I lost my first follower. Sad. I actually feel really terrible & worry that is because of my lack of updates lately{now don't get me wrong I'm so not doing this for big #'s & I wouldn't want anyone here who really doesn't like at lil something about this blog. But just as in the real world, I worry that it was me...}. As I have mentioned before I'm struggling with balance in my life & where everything I want/need is suppose to fit into what everyone else wants & needs. Sigh. It's a continuing learning process, I tell ya, but I'm working on it. Within this balance there's blogging. Since I thought it would be just a casual thing, I didn't really consider when, or how often I would blog. Or how that would even fit in to my life. I'm the kinda girl that has alot of things on the go at once, & {shamefully}don't always finish each task, but always soak up what I do accomplish. Anyways, I'm making commitment. I'm going to blog at the minimum 3 times a week. I talked with D & we both feel that is something totally workable. So, yeah!!! I have so many {fun}ideas for this lil blog & I really want to put them in place. ...

Thank you to all of you who read my blog:) I really do appreciate the time you given me & I am excited to venture into this blogsphere deeper!  I can't wait to get caught up with all your blogs & start leaving comments. So watch out people, I'm coming!

But anyways, here are a few things that have been keeping me busy happy lately...
I can not stop making these. Addicted.

I have been trying to eat healthier. My solution making soup, & soup & more soup.
My freezer couldn't be happier

This lil 2yearold personality has peeked. Oh man, my sweet lil baby
turned lil devil. Even still. We love every inch of him:)

Z & I can't stop baking. It's so fun & he is getting so good at it.
Memories. Gotta love making memories{&tasty ones are the best!}
Happy weekend, bloggy friends!! Love & hugs

I'm the same, I never realised how 'addictive' blogging is, whether it's reading or posting them!I wouldn't worry to much about losing a follower, I've lost a few but it's okay, my blog wasn't set up for any particular reason, but I love the inspiration it gives me to actually do something! I haven't even told my family and friends about it!
Enjoy your blogging, have a great weekend x

Isn't it funny how much you can connect with people you've never met. I have made some really good "blogging" friends and I feel like I know them so well as much as my "real-life" friends. lol. Can't wait to read more and get to know you better :)

I like reading your little anecdotes on life- very relatable!

Losing a follower sucks but you just have to think that if they don't love you for who you are then you don't need them anyway! xo
