Since last year, I've gotten pregnant, had my sweet Daphne, and quit my job to be a stay-at-home-mom. Not only that, but my husband also graduated with his Master's and changed jobs as well! Life has progressed rapidly over the last 12 months and I see no end in sight of it slowing down any time soon. And thank goodness!
Never before have I been so excited, so bewildered, so exhausted, and so grateful...this is a good place to be as I leap into my 30-somethings! I have two, healthy, beautiful daughters who drive me wild with equal amounts of love and insanity. I have a handsome husband who still likes my cooking and takes out the trash without being asked. And I have my dream job which I've spent years praying for and working towards and I have to say - it is even better than I imagined (just don't ask me at 3am...I mean, I'm still human). ;)
But okay, enough bragging/counting my blessings. Let's look ahead. Afterall, birthdays are more than just a time to reflect and see what God has done thusfar...they are also a time to set goals, project progress, and simply dream about what is to come. NOT that I'm trying to rush anything! For heaven's sake, I just had a baby 7 weeks ago who is already being mistaken for a 3 month old! Time is already marching at a faster pace than I'd like!
One of the things I'd like to cement into my newly 30-something life, however, is writing. Here it is. I'm saying it. I'm going to write more. I'm going to put myself out there and blog like a blogging fool.
Here is my only disclaimer - it will be hit or miss. I have no agenda, I have no expertise, I have no intention of being a blog where someone will come and necessarily feel like they are walking away with more than just some gal's fearless antics about her life. Maybe you will feel more validated in your own life. Perhaps you will chuckle a bit or empathize with my honesty.
Nevertheless, I hope you stick around for a long time. It's just about to get good. And maybe we can take this thing all the way till I'm blogging (or whatever we're calling it by then) about my 40-nothing and 50-nothing self, and so on...
For now though...it's about time we turn this nothing into something. Here we go.
