Oh, Hey... I'm Still Alive

Thursday, October 11, 2012



I thought I'd post more since I had Eden, but the days seem to go by so fast.
Joshua's work schedule just switched around so I'll have a little bit more free time at night to blog... Lord willing ;)

I got the sweetest email the other day from Erin... "Hugs to your little gem - on a sidenote, I was just talking to L from Glorious Within about how much we've learned from you in how well you've handled blogging & being a mama - you've set such a good example of prioritizing your little one and cherishing this time while she's small - admire your heart so much, girl!!"

Just when I was feeling like a failure for "letting my blog go"... bam. It was just what I needed in that moment. This time with my little baby... while she's so small and literally changes every single day before my eyes... these moments I won't regret forgetting my blog and putting her first. This is why I love this blogging community. Really wishing I was at Influence Conference right now, though! For those of you that are there-- have so much fun!

Thank you, everyone, for loving me even when I let my blog take the back seat. xo

Agreed! I think you've done a fantastic job! And, again, your little one is just so sweet. I wrote once before that I can't get over her eyes! It's like she can see straight into you! She's an old soul already ;).

Not to worry at all!! You are so right. In the end, spending time with that adorable little gal is so much more important than blogging, it's like not even on the same plane! Enjoy your time as a sweet family of 3. We'll be here when you pop in to say hi :)

Awww! I must say I'm sure leaving your blog in the back seat is an easy sacrifice when a baby as cute as Eden is right next to you! =) Good job mom. Your setting priorities straight. Xoxo
