First of all, hi, new blog! If you have read some of my blogs before, you probably know that blogging isn’t exactly something I am good at. I just can’t seem to keep up and post regularly, and it doesn’t help that I am just as self-conscious about my writing as I am about my body. But as I reflected back on 2014 and entered into a brand new year, one thing I wish I did was to document our days better and more than just Instagram posts. I don’t want to feel that way at the end of this new year, so, whether I can keep it up or not, I am giving blogging another try. And I am going to do this in hopes that I can be more present and appreciative of our busy, at times chaotic, and blessed life. I’m also feeling the itch to write today because I was a little emotional after dropping off Z and N at school this morning. This is Naynay’s second week in preschool, and he loves it! No potty accidents so far either ;-) For the first time in the past 3 years, I don’t have to plan our mornings according to the kids’ interests and energy (at least not until Izzy gets a little older.) and that feels so weird still! In some ways I’m a little sad and lonely, but I am trying to be thankful that I get some time off with just Izzy on these two days, since one-on-one attention from me is quite a rarity for our littlest baby.
All in all, praise the Lord, 2015 has been off to a really good start for us in terms of work, school, family time, and church life. Not everyday has been smooth but we’ve managed to focus on the right thing and find joy in our hearts. So, here’s to a year of documenting our life on this new little space! Excited already :)
