It’s been far too long since I really sat down to write. Aside from the sporadic recipes and random bulleted posts, I’ve really managed to slack a bit in the blog department. Not at all because I want to neglect this little piece of the internet, but life is happening. Life is certainly full these days, and busy, and much more chaotic than I could have ever anticipated. The beginning of the school year has really thrown me for a loop, and I’m not sure when it’s going to settle down and feel normal.
Most days I just crave the simplicity of this past summer. I miss spending the days at home, I miss the quiet, I miss the simple, and seemingly boring. I remember making the choice to go back to work and absolutely craving routine and schedule and conversation, I remember thinking I was filling a void, and it all felt right. That person seems a million miles away from me now.
When the evenings come, and I have a little on my heart to write about, I usually talk myself out of it fairly quickly. There are books to be read, and tricycles to be ridden, there is so much life in this house, and too many things trump sitting down to write. But, this is something that I know and love, this is something that my heart needs, so I’m taking the time tonight, while the house is quiet to give you a few posts for the upcoming week. And it feels really good.
I never intended for the beginning of this post to be a little dreary, that’s not normally my standard. And we are doing really fun and happy things. Life is bring lived to the very fullest. BK is growing at a rate that I’m not all too comfortable with, as many of you fellow mothers can surely relate.
So I’ll leave you with some photos that I’ve yet to share. Some recent, some from a few months back, all happy.

Here’s to a great Monday, a better week, and a hope that life slows down just a bit.
