first things first.
i'm trying really hard to engage with y'all. i love when you ask questions and leave kind comments---so i have a reply button in my comments section (finally---i'm such a professional blogger if you couldn't tell).
SO, if you leave a comment with a question, check back there. i really want this place to be full of back and forth dialogue, and i haven't been good about always carrying on the conversation. but it's important to me!
also, for the record, i'm dropping back on the amount of times i post in a week...so that i'm not always posting 5 times. even though i love y'all and want to be here everyday, it's just not happening for me right now, thanks to 6 little people.
i've always really enjoyed posting consistently, 5 days a week...and my grandparents love it too.
but, i just can't do it right now. some weeks i might (these are usually the weeks when i get some alone time at starbucks), some weeks i may not.
just think of it as a fun surprise if you drop by and there is a post!
and can i just give a word of encouragement today---i've been feeling heavy hearted for some of you who think you're not good enough at this blogging thing. who think you have to change your blog, or who you are, or the way you write, etc. so that people will "like" you or "follow" you.
friends, that is so missing the mark. it's easy to get caught up in what other bloggers are writing about, dressing like, taking pictures of, etc. but where are YOU in all of that?
you have a story to tell...and it's all yours. nobody else.
be proud of it.
seriously. go be proud of your story. and tell it like no one else can.
