I haven’t blogged in a really long time. It’s been 7 months since my last post. Initially, I started this blog so that I’d have better odds at getting a job in my field. At the time of my last two posts, I had secured a job and an entirely new life began in a whirlwind that still hasn’t touched down. I lost the purpose for this blog.
Since that time, our life has continued to be in a constant state of change, and yet we’ve had a remarkable peace about it along the way. We are pregnant with a baby girl who will be born in June. We are shopping for a house. Mike is working in a job completely different than he had planned to do when we moved here, and he’s incredibly fulfilled by his work. My job has challenged and tested me from the first day, and I am truly thankful for the incredible people I work with and for the community we serve. We have started working with the religious life ministries at AU (our alma mater) and I’m leading a small team of some powerhouse women who inspire and encourage me on a daily basis. And with all of that, I still didn’t feel like I had a reason to write.
A part of me feels like no one would be interested in the day-to-day babblings of my life. A part of me has been far too exhausted/busy to think about writing. And more than anything, I worried that I craved the approval of others a little too much and needed to pull back a bit. But, I feel inspired to write again.
So, as we continue to move through these ridiculous blessings and challenges that have come our way, I will be writing to help process this whole becoming a mommy/homeowner (read: grown up) thing and you are invited to come along for the journey. It’s a crazy one!
