Okay, I understand that cursing is probably not the most graceful way to jump back into a blog but seriously people, holy shit. Today when I tentatively typed in my url to check on my little blog here there was a part of me that believed it had been, oh, 3 or 4 months since I last posted (obviously, this part of me lives in a world where unicorns drop us off on mountains of sundaes, which we ski down landing in lakes of calorie-free fudge sauce; a magical place where leggings actually are pants). Imagine my surprise when I realized it has been almost TWO YEARS since I last wrote here. See? I think that deserves a serious “holy shit.”
The funny thing is that with all I’ve been doing (and it’s been a doozy of a two years – moving numerous times, new jobs, new friends and a couple of big surprises I’ll share later this week) this little blog has haunted me wherever I go. And today it hit me that being scared of restarting and looking foolish is not a reasonable excuse for stopping something I genuinely enjoy. Well, that and my husband told me it was time to put up or shut up and I think we can all imagine the terror I felt at the prospect of not talking.
So, I’m back and rather than making any large pronouncements (which I realize I’m quite prone to) I’m going to say, “It’s lovely to see you all again and I look forward to many adventures ahead.”
