Well, hello there.
It’s been a while.
Like, a reaaaally long while.
Per my Birthday Goal List, I have already failed at being a better blogger….I just don’t even know what happened.
I guess a part of me has just been really overwhelmed, and the other part of me has just felt super uninspired. I didn’t mean to fall off the face of the Earth for the past two and a half weeks (I wasn’t even posting on my Instagram!), it just kind of happened.
I’m realizing now that the end of the year will always be a little crazy. And I really hope that each year, I get a little better at it.
I have been suuuuuuuuuper overwhelmed. So much is happening and I just feel like there is not enough time to do it all. For starters, I haven’t even sent out my thank you cards for my wedding yet…..whoops. Don’t worry, they’re all written out. It’s just the addressing, stamping, and mailing them that I just can’t seem to get done.
And then there’s Olivia’s birthday party invitations. Her party is on the 16th and the invites are still not done.
And then her party.
And then Thanksgiving.
And then Christmas shopping.
And then two separate cookie days.
And then between both of our families, I feel like we’re celebrating Christmas for a whole week.
And then there’s New Years.
And then hello, 2014, you sure got here quick.
Don’t worry, I know I’m not the only one. And I know I’m always bitching about how fast time flies and how I want it to slow down. And I know that my list really isn’t that bad, especially maybe compared to others who probably have it way worse but…
I guess right now I’m really feeling the pressure to do it all. And to do it all really well. Like I have something to prove.
And the truth is, I don’t. I have a beautiful daughter and a sexy ass husband by my side, loving me whether I do it all, or just run the other way until Christmas is over.
But how bad is it, that even knowing all of that, I still have this pressure on myself to get it all done, in a timely and classy fashion?
And I guess that’s where all the overwhelming-ness comes in.
Which is why blogging has kind of taken a backseat….even though I miss it so much.
I think I was also super uninspired because my camera was in the camera hospital, being serviced, and taking pictures for my blog on my cell phone just wasn’t cutting it. I really dislike the camera on my phone.
But my camera is back, and I’ve already gotten back into the clicking spirit, taking a thousand and one pictures of Olivia and our adventures and surroundings.
Tomorrow I will be back, with lots and lots of pictures and some stories of what we’ve been up to and I really hope to continue blogging more than once every other week because I really,
REALLY miss it. And you guys.
Speaking of, how are you all doing?
