So this is the night I start blogging again, apparently. Just opened up Blogger and started writing.
So much has happened, so many many good, happy things. Some big, some little. And some not-so-happy things too. But they have all been necessary, balancing things. Specific, I know. But it is hard to know where to start, what to say. Every day - literally EVERY DAY - I think of something to write about. I think of something to say - to someone out there, or to no one in particular - something that I don't want to forget, something Eliza said, something we did as a family, some random bit of parental fodder, a frustration, a question... And yet somehow I haven't. Four months have gone by since we moved and I have left this space empty and neglected. Someone asked me if I had abandoned my blog, and I thought that sounded so sad (poor, poor little abandoned blog!), but I guess that's what happened.
Geesh, somehow this feels so weird. Guess I need to stretch my writing legs. But I thought to just jump into a list of "what we've been up to", as if no time passed, would be forced. Part of the reason I stopped writing was because I felt so immersed in and enchanted by our new neighborhood, a new way of living our daily lives, I didn't think I would miss writing. But oh. How I've missed it.
I've also missed the conversation and connection with you all. Looking forward to getting back into it. I hope I find a routine and a new way of incorporating this space into my life again. I want to for so many reasons... not the least of which is this girl right here:
