I Can't Break Up

It's only been 6 days, and I already miss blogging.
I want to share my life with friends and family in this way.
And capture our little moments for me too.
I love looking back at what we've done
or little AJ/Abby/Brody-isms.
Life is too wonderful not shout it from a rooftop.

I lost focus on my original purpose for this blog when I opened my etsy shop.
I got sucked into using my blog as a venue to promote my shop.
I got caught up in how many followers I had or how many comments I got.
It became more about a blog
and not about cherishing our story.
Things got muddled.
It lost its authenticity.

So I'm back.
But not with a Followers gadget or an Etsy shop.

But with a renewed focus.
Blogging for my kids, my family, my friends, and me.
Maybe not posting everyday or even every week,
But when I want to because I want to.

I get it! It's nice to take a break sometimes and refocus :) Not sure if you've thought of making your blog memories into a book, but... here's this: I just received our first blog book that I made of my first year documenting life. It's really neat to hold a book of your blogging memories and add it to your bookshelf :)

Oh, thank goodness. So many times, I just tune into what is indeed a capricious perspective to get in touch with your happy family and the adventures that come with 3 little people. Your voice (and your tales) are amusing and entertaining and heartfelt. And you are always filled with such a love for whatever comes your way. Enjoy blogging on YOUR terms!
