Well THIS is a surprise, no? I honestly never thought I'd be back online, on this blog - I'd made a list of goals for 2012 and the eventual, deliberate demise of this journal was one of them. I guess it all just became too much to handle for awhile. Why, you ask? Well a lot of the reason is this:

Sean and I got engaged: March 2011
Married: October 2011
Bought a house (gut renovation! whee! we are so in over our heads!): April/May 2012 Left my long time job for a new one: mid-late May 2012
Discovered that I was pregnant: mid-May 2012

 So...yeah...writing on my blog sort of fell by the wayside. The last year and a half have been so full of blessings, I just didn't want or need to write.  There are only so many outlets a girl can handle, am I right?  Until I tweeted last night about some pregnancy-related heartburn, it honestly never even occurred to me that people were still paying attention after all this time. Dysfunction Junction and Lawyerish DM'ed me back on Twitter with their surprised congratulations...thanks, ladies!

I won't apologize for my absence, as I feel it was warranted given the developments in my "real" life, but I can promise that I'll make a more concerted effort to write. I always enjoyed it (and continue to enjoy it) but never made it a priority. That changes now. Not sure where I'm headed on this journey, but I'm grateful to have you all along for the ride.

Take care, all, and thanks for the love!
