|My little family...|
I have been blogging, on and off, since 2007. I have blogged through two deployments, break-ups, and my engagement and wedding. I honed my baking skills through blogging and have met some amazing people, through blogging. I loved my old blog but I can't make it what I want it to be anymore.

I find myself these days sort of lost. With so much change in the last two years (we also moved), it's been hard to find that new normal we are living in and make it work for me. I struggled with Post Partum Depression after P was born and am still dealing with it. I'm struggling on finding a balance of taking care of my entire family and still taking care of myself. It's a constant struggle. A struggle I wouldn't change for the world, but a struggle nonetheless.
Through all of it, I find myself coming back to blogging. I read something online and think, "I wish I could blog about that," or something happens that I want to document or share and I don't. The old blog isn't appropriate for where my life is anymore. It was a baking blog that morphed into a lifestyle blog, sort of. At this season in my life, I think just a "life" blog is more my style. A place where I can share whatever I want...baby pics, funny stories, deep thoughts, recipes, projects, etc.
I find myself wishing for days to be over since they are exhausting and all I want to do is sleep. But I need to remember, the sweetness is in the moments. I don't want to ever forget that. P won't be the little and snuggly forever. Koda won't always have this insane amount of energy. I want to appreciate all my life has offered me.
I hope you enjoy the randomness that I hope to show here. It won't always be pretty, but that is life and the sweetness in the moments of life are what it's all about.
