I’m Baaaaaaack!

Hello-Im-back

Did you miss me? I never thought I would have to take two months off from blogging but I guess that’s how long I needed. I’ve missed you so much, I hope you missed me. I am excited to be back and super excited to start working on a new layout and really get this blog off the ground.

As you may know, I had my darling little baby boy. He was born one month ago from day on March 30. Of course he’s growing so fast!!! I ended up going to school the weekend he was born and during the Saturday class I started having contractions. I sucked it up and stayed in class because they were pretty random but about an hour or so before class was over they started getting painful so I got picked up. Within about 10 minutes of being picked up I went into labor, having contractions 5 minutes apart. I went to the hospital and 19 hours later, my new baby boy was born into this world.

I had a crazy delivery, but will spare you the details. My mom was in town from the San Francisco Bay Area and I was lucky enough to have her stay for a month. She was completely helpful and I miss her now. This is the first week I have had the baby completely by myself during the daytime and for the last two days it was a little difficult but hey, that’s how newborn are huh. It’s been so long, I forget. Luckily my other son is in school and after school care because it makes it easier during the day. My other son is absolutely in love with his little brother though, it’s amazing to experience. I love seeing the bond they are developing!

I’m glad to be back. I haven’t forgotten about Good Deeds either, I’ve missed a lot so far this year but excited to get back to the journal. Hope you have extended some Random Acts of Kindness along the way.

One thing I am excited about is having more guest bloggers and posts. I’ve always seen this blog being a place to share others amazing writings and views along with my own so having more guest bloggers and posts is a start. If you are interested in sharing a blog post, feel free to contact me. Also if you have any ideas of what you want to see/read in the future, I would LOVE to hear your opinions.

Let’s get this baby off the ground finally.

For now, say Hi to Kade!

I’m Still Alive

Just dropping in to let you know I Am indeed still alive. This is probably the longest time between posts I have ever had since I started. Kinda bummed because I was hoping during this break pre-baby that I would have more time to dedicate to writing some more, but honestly on most days it’s just hard to keep my eyes open, especially when on the computer.

I’ve also had SO much to do. Let’s just say I’ve been in FULL nesting mode. Wanting to rearrange, and get together every room in the house. Throw away stuff. You name it. I have to still get my homework done, which is actually my Final, for class and turn it in by Friday especially if I don’t make it to class this weekend… yes I’ve even been thinking about going even though it’s my due date weekend, I’m crazy I know! I’ve been trying to fit in some time here and there editing pictures I still owe a couple from their wedding. I’ve been getting the nursery together. My poor fiance has got it from me for sure. Going to Babies R Us every other day. Spending money money money. Changing my mind. Cleaning…messing up… avoiding packing my hospital bag. I’ve been freaking out wanting to get everything done before the baby comes considering he could be here ANY day now. And then on top of all that, taking naps in the middle of it all.

So of everything that I feel needs to be done BEFORE the baby comes, my blog has fallen by the wayside. BUT I know how understanding you are that I know it’s ok!!! 🙂

Thanks for sticking around during this break for me. I’m sure it wont get much easier over the next couple months but I will try to be more present and available.

I miss you and hopefully u miss me 🙂

Will stay in touch over the next few days. Baby boy will be here ANY DAY now.

xoxo,
