Where on earth to start? My computer died. My phone died. My camera died. Not the same day or anything, but it felt like a good time to just take a break from...well, everything. Summer was slow and hot and filled with trips to the farmer's market, a multiple week visit from my best friend, lots of visits with sisters and just being... my birthday came and boy has 26 been great so far. The first half of my twenties was tough for so many reasons, but so far so good with this second half. My first tattoo, finally buzzing my hair (I've done it three times now and I think I've got it just right now), and a lot of new, deep things that have me feeling like I am finally here. I'm liking this new voice I'm finding.

 Fall came with so much confusion about when Joe would actually be coming home...end of October, no, early January, no, maybe...well....December? November? January again...? and on and on until we started ignoring that paper chain because it was too much to keep up with. Then it happened finally, "...home in two weeks..." gulp. Big life changes go like that though, don't they? So much time thinking about them and wondering and then in one moment nothing normal is the same. Don't get me wrong, we are beyond delighted to have him home! But goodness two years is a damn long time. It went so well though. Our little family is full again, and it is just wonderful. I pondered how to do a catching up post but I think that I'm simply going to dive back in and try to find a grove here. I've been working on a fresh blog home and once I get that finished up I'll share the new link with you! For now though let me just say thank you for reading and it is good to be back!


  1. Welcome back! That first pic is absolutely beautiful.

    1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd be interested in a blog link exchange.
      My blog covers a lot of interesting and helpful posts just like yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. And also, I think you'll love my recent blog post titled What Happens When A Guy Acts Clingy And Insecure Around A Girl?

      I'm hoping to hear from you too and quickly, you've got a great blog here.


  2. So happy to see you here again <3 I think we all need break now and again (even if they aren't OUR idea, hee,hee.) I am still over the moon for you and your family with Joe's return.
    I miss you my dearest friend!!! XOXO

  3. Good to see you back! I have enjoyed reading along here for a long time now!

  4. Hello again! Happy to see your posts again! Hope all is well with your family:)

  5. I've just been thinking about you lately, and here you are! I'm so glad that your husband is back! I'll be praying that the adjustment goes as smoothly as possible, as I know there always *is* an adjustment regardless of how excited you are to be reunited.

    May God bless your family in this new year!


  6. It is so good to have you back, I have missed your blog!
