Hello, my long lost friends! I hope you’re enjoying the first tastes of Fall. Right now I’m snuggled in warm sweatpants, with fluffy slippers on my feet, while listening to the sound of rain drum against the windows. I might go pour myself a glass of fresh apple cider to complete the ambiance. Anyway, I wanted… Continue reading Hello!
I want to say thank you to Incredibly Blessed Nest for nominating me for my second Liebster Award! It is so encouraging to know there are people who read and enjoy my blog. It keeps me going on those days when blogging is a struggle. I love the Liebster Award. I met some of my favorite blogs… Continue reading The Liebster Award, Round 2
Today is the last day of Aaron’s late nigh work schedule. It couldn’t be over soon enough. I feel like he was barely home this week, and he’s hardly seen Desirae at all. At least we will have some family time this weekend. Aaron and I even have a date night planned tomorrow, just the two of us! It’s a miracle.
But come Monday, I have jury duty. As Desirae’s primary caretaker, I’m nervous about leaving her for an extended period of time. I’ve never been away from her for more than a few hours. Plus, I don’t know how many days I’ll be able to find baby sitters. I either need to not be selected or to have a short trial. We’ll see what happens!
While I’m waiting around the court house, I hope to work on scheduling my blog, deciding on specific goals, and creating a better blogging process. What kind of goals do you have for your blog? What is your blogging process or system? How far out do you schedule your posts? How often do you post? I’d be interested in hearing any of your ideas, tips, or experiences! I should have lots of time to think about them next week! Also, I need something other than worrying about Desirae to occupy my mind while I’m waiting.
I’m not sure when I’ll be back on the blog or social media. Right now, jury duty is holding my life’s schedule in the balance. I’ll be glad when we can get things back to our normal rhythm. For now I’ll just cross my fingers, and hope for short trial!
It’s a shame that I can’t escape from jury duty as easily as this kid escapes from bedtime. I think I could learn something from him. This boy has some serious ninja skills. I feel for his poor mother.
Have a great weekend, and hopefully I’ll be back sooner than later!
Well, it’s April 25th, the perfect date. It wasn’t too hot or too warm. All I needed was a light jacket. #MissCongenialityForever Today also marks the day that I’m officially on Snapchat. My sister called today and begged me to sign up because apparently “it will make us more connected.” I have a piece of advice… Continue reading Monday Musings
This blog started quite suddenly. I didn’t read any books, write out any goals, deliberate over the perfect name, research the best web host, or ask any bloggers about their experiences. One day I started mulling over the idea of writing again, questioning my skills and debating the idea of starting a new blog. Once I mentioned the idea to my husband, he thought it was a brilliant and has been my biggest supporter ever since. But I still wasn’t convinced.
I was nominated for my first blog award! I don’t think the world can understand how excited I am. I want to say a HUGE thank you to Zelynne Blog for nominating me! I am so grateful for all your support and your interaction on my blog! It’s so encouraging to know there are people out there who appreciate and enjoy my writing.
