I'm back to blogging after taking a nice long break.
It had gotten to the point that even though there were things I wanted to share or write about I just couldn't sit down and do it. That meant it was time to step away for a bit and just enjoy life unplugged.
There were also lots of life changes going on and sometimes you just need to process them. First, I found out some very exciting and suprising news - we are going to have a BABY! The Mr and I were so very excited but as if that wasn't a life changer enough a couple of months later I was laid off from my full-time job. The timing really sucked but it turns out that it was for the best.
Having the time away from work has given me a chance to truly enjoy this pregnancy. If I'm tired, I can sleep. If I feel like going for a walk in the sun, I can. Stress has been minimal and I can just relax and enjoy every minute. I feel really really lucky not to have to juggle a million things right now. I've also been really lucky to have a very easy pregnancy so far. It's been great.
Fast forward to today and I'm now 34 weeks along and heading into the final stretch. My days are spent waddling around the nursery trying to get it all put together and just so before she arrives, coming up with new meals to make, searching for good freezable meals so that we'll have something to eat in the coming months, and spending time getting the house in order and playing with our dogs.
All of these changes have me feeling inspired again. I'm sure I'll have lots to share as I embark on this next stage of my life and I hope that you'll share your tips and tricks and favorite finds with me too.
