Yes, it's true. I am back. Back to blogging, that is. I've been thinking about it for a few months and I realize that I miss being able to present my thoughts in an attractive, publicly accessible manner. That being said, this is a further developed version of me, a few months down the road, one that has learned to hold my cards a little closer than previously. But that doesn't mean I still don't have tons of stuff I want to share with you.
The reason I am back to blogging:
1. FOOOOOOOOD! I got off Facebook (mostly, still on it for work) at the beginning of July, and lo and behold I had all this TIME on my hands. And with that time I rediscovered my love for the Real Food Movement and cooking! So I'll be sharing a lot of easy, really nourishing, really rewarding recipes, and show you how I easily incorporate Real Food principles into my family's life. It's really not that hard to eat well. I feel like I have so much information to pass on to you all, information that could REALLY help you learn how to make smart food choices for yourselves and your family (and I'm not talking the standard stuff you think you know).
2. iPhone Photography - I discovered Hipstamatic some months back and I LOVE the results. I've realized I've got an eye for capturing images (and others have confirmed - it's not just me who is all high on myself). My iPhone has the most awesome camera!! Next step is to find me a suitable, low cost DSLR and learn how to really take photos. That step is imminent, so stay tuned. This blog will have lots of visual content.
3. I need a hobby - I do. Though this summer was SO incredible in terms of me finding balance, the scales have tipped again at the office and I am back to having a hard time compartmentalizing. Blogging gives me a project that is not work related, and that's purely for pleasure, and I REALLY need that. So thank you for indulging me.
4. My kids - They are growing up and I want to keep a record going on their amazingness in theirchildhood. I don't slow down nearly enough to appreciate that. But we're heading out of babyhood and all that jazz for ever (never say never, I know, but I'm really saying forever!) and watching these three incredible girls grow up is just the most incredibly rewarding experience.
So that's it. I can't say how frequently I'll be back to blogging. I want this to be an organic sort of development, with no committment or obligation, because that's the kind of stuff that ends in me just not wanting to do something that's supposed to be fun. But I'm here again for a while at least, and I hope you'll have me back!
