Well my online friends, it has been a while. More than a while. More than a long while. It's been a break, a gap, an absence of significant proportion. As usual there are a million little reasons called life that have gotten in the way of writing. Those million little moments these last six months have felt much more crowded, because along with the little moments there have been bigger, life changing things like moving to a new house, and the tiny change of a soon to be freshly baked bun in the oven.
It's been a good six months. It's been a crazy six months. And it's only about to get crazier when baby bundle to be arrives (ETA late March/early April) . But I hope to return here with much greater frequency, especially after baby enters the world, because I know perfectly well for how fast life has moved recently it's only going to get faster. And it's going to speed up precisely when I will be desperate for it to slow down, for every moment to last just a little bit longer. There's nothing I can really do about that, but I can at least preserve some of those moments here. I can come here with the good, the bad, and the ugly (or more accurately the poop covered). I can, as I always tend to do, turn memories into words and sentences, and in that way make them the closest thing possible to permanent.
I'm a thirty-something mom of two, wife, pediatric RN, and writer with a passion for all the big and little things in life.
