Hey Y'all

As I lay here doing absolutely nothing but listening to a storm while my kids sleep in I thought I'd stop and say hello to all of you that have so kindly read my posts since I started this blog. 

I finished my posts about our Las Vegas trip with lots of pics on the blogger app and was going to post them over 3 days. Somehow all the posts were deleted except for the titles. 2 hours of work..gone!

I could come up with a million other reasons for my absence as of lately. I love capturing moments with pictures and then sharing them but maybe I do that too much. I need to BE wherever I am and DO whatever I'm doing wholeheartedly instead of taking a pic or updating a status and then worrying how many likes I get etc. Brian and I talked about this while we were out of town. It was like discussing an addiction I have. Crazy! So most of the pics from our trip were taken on his phone and then he texted them to me later when we weren't out enjoying ourselves. He refuses to partake in social media.  

My childhood memories don't involve mom and dad with a phone in hand 50-75% of the time. I can look back thru old pics that had to be developed and tell you a story about almost all of them. 

This blog is important to me and so are the friends I've made and all of my readers. It's also been a small investment. It just seemed like I was constantly thinking of what my next post should be on the blog, IG, or FB. 

So, if you're still out there reading I appreciate it. I hope to get back to it this week but family first! I plan to redo the posts about our trip. It was too grand not to make a part of my diary which is basically what this blog is. I do have it printed into a book at the end of the year. I hope to get back to writing sooner than later.

Thanks for reading!


  1. I miss your posts but totally understand the whole "disconnecting" thing. Do what you gotta do! :)

  2. I miss you but your kids are only little once! Completely understand!

  3. I understand and agree with you 100%. Those damn phones are so addicting! I try my hardest to put the stupid thing down when I am with my kids. But I am not going to lie... It's hard!

    I miss ya, but you gotta spend time with the kids, because they are only young ONCE!

  4. I fully understand where you are coming from. Enjoy those babies!

  5. I miss you!! But I get it! It's the same in our house too! Sad that we feel the need to be so connected to people we, for the most part, haven't met. While my kids sit and play by themselves on the floor! I gave myself rules now, I can only read, look, post, etc if the kids are napping or thouroghly entertained, and then I'll check Instagram but that's about it. My eye opener was when my 2 year old said, come here mommy. Put your phone down. Yikes! I felt horrible!!!
