I'm writing this, still sitting in bed with my pajamas on with a sweet little girl cuddled up next to me, staring out the window at the beautiful blizzard. I haven't brushed my teeth and I haven't had a drop of coffee yet. I just need to write. This post isn't going to have pretty pictures or fun graphics. I'm not awake enough for that.
I hope words are okay.
Truth be told, I've been struggling lately. I have a lot of thoughts swirling around in my too-tired-from-staying-up-late-to-watch-Alias brain. I have a lot of things I want to write about but I just don't have the mental clarity or the right writing spot where we are right now. The words aren't flowing and I've just wanted to spend my free moments playing trains with my girl, talking about the future with the hubs, thrifting, reading, and hanging out on Instagram.
There are many things I want to tell you, though.
I want to tell you all about how awesome our new church is, how thrilled we are to meet everyone, and how blessed we feel. I want to tell you all about the ideas I have for decorating our new place and how excited I am about getting to, in a sense, start from scratch since we downsized so much to move to Chicago. I want to tell you all about the moments of struggle and thankfully, the moments of pure joy I've had in being a mom lately.
I also want to tell you how I had every intention to announce sometime later this month that I was going to be taking an extended blog and shop break.
The funny thing is that as soon as I sat down to prepare that post, I realized I can't do it. I love blogging even if it isn't the first thing I think about when I wake up. I love sharing snippets of our life with you. I love to write when the inspiration hits, even if that's just once or twice a week these days. I know that we'll have many things to share over the next few months and rather than go radio silent, I just won't be posting as much. I hope that's okay, too.
Happy Friday, friends.
