To Love. To Grow. To Change. To Live.

Taking Stock

My blog presence has been a bit scarce since I've become a working mom.  August will make a year that I've been back at work and I feel like I've found a work-life balance that works for me and my family; however, blogging just hasn't fit into that equation as much as I'd like.  I've been at this for two years now and plan to keep it up as long as my heart is in it, which it still is, so I imagine that there are seasons of plenty (i.e., full of time and ideas for blogging) and seasons of lack (i.e., no time, no ideas, etc.) just as there are different seasons in real life.

Ultimately, I'm very content in this season of plenty in my life so I'm totally okay with this season of lack in this space.  And just know that when I'm falling behind on posts and responding to comments (so sorry, friends) you can always find me interacting on Instagram or Twitter, so definitely stay in touch that way!

Just to give you a feel of what's what in my life at present...

 Making : Time for blogging, for once :)!

Cooking : Nothing tonight, we've got leftovers. Yes!

Drinking : Lots and lots of water. It's hot this summer.

Reading: CQA Primer, to become a certified quality auditor.

Wanting: Some Cold Stone ice cream.

Looking: At Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Playing: Mali Is...over and over.

Wasting: The day away, as usual.

Sewing: Nothing. I really need to use my sewing machine.

Wishing: I could reduce my sugar intake.  I just ate eight cookies :(.

Enjoying: This season of my life. #content

Waiting: For the hubs to get home, he's working late tonight.

Liking: Polka dots this season.

Wondering: What new recipes I can try this week.

Loving: My family and friends and the great things that are happening in their lives.

Hoping: We'll get Madison potty trained soon, it's driving me wild.

Marveling: In Madison's comprehension. She's so smart.

Needing: My hair washed by someone else.

Smelling: Laundry. It's laundry day!

Wearing: My pajamas w/ my girl.  We're in for the day.

Following: Some neat people on Twitter that really get me thinking.

Noticing: That Mario is being more and more helpful and I appreciate it.

Knowing: That I must enjoy life instead of rushing through it.

Thinking: A lot about our debt and our plan to get rid of it.

Bookmarking: DIY projects that I REALLY want to do (using Pinterest for the rest).

Opening: Mail. I really, really like receiving mail.

Giggling: At all the clever things that Maddie says.

Feeling: Loved (always)!

Being: Happy,

Post idea from Meet Me at Mike's



  1. I love this! There is no better feeling than being content!!!

  2. I'm so with you on wanting to cut down on sugar, it's so hard!! I made a pan of brownies on Friday night and they were gone by Sunday afternoon. Pretty sure I ate at least half of them by myself.. oops!

  3. EIGHT COOKIES?! No ma'am!! That is not acceptable!

  4. I love this! Even if you could get a post out like this weekly; I'm sure you audience would love it!!!

  5. There's a time and season for everything, right? (My blog has taken a back seat as well.) I need to actually use my sewing machine, also. That should be one of our goals...actually do something with it!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I read and cherish each and every one and do my very best to respond to all in a timely manner.
