I took about 6 months off from blogging. Not intentionally…life had just taken us in so many different directions and I was trying to figure out how to manage all of the beautiful changes while not becoming a complete crazy person.
Turns out the transition to motherhood can be pretty intense.
In an effort to compartmentalize everything, I attempted to move to a new blog, thinking a fresh start was in order. That didn't really do much for me. I have a weird attachment to this blog. Perhaps because it's where I started writing back in 2010.
I have been toying with the idea of starting to write at Have My Cake again for a few weeks now. I thought about the poor poor new blog and how I would be just leaving it behind to die a sad and lonely internet death and I thought about another new blog…but my mind just kept coming back to this one. It feels like home here.
You may notice that the posts from the past few years are missing. Don't worry…they wont be missing forever. I'm working on sifting through them and putting them in a safe place as archives, should anyone want to go back and check them out.
I'm very excited to be back where I belong and I'm looking forward to writing and sharing with you guys again.
I thought for this first return post, a Taking Stock was appropriate.
Currently I am…
