Okay, if you’ll excuse me for a minute, I’ll dust off these cobwebs.
The past few weeks have been a whirlwind and I’ve missed all of you and this little space of mine.
What have we been doing?
Well, I’ve been happily writing my tail off over at SheKnows and I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful I am to be a part of that amazing team.
I’ve had the chance to write about decluttering, getting kids started with gardening, and why it’s important to show our kids our joy.
I’ve also shared some suggestions for great photos to take of your kids this spring, raising compassionate children, and helping your daughter build strong self-esteem.
Katie has been thrilled to help me with some of the projects I’ve shared on SheKnows, like the bowl we made from buttons and the (light blue!) bath bombs.
And yesterday, I shared where things stand with us and our ongoing battle with infertility.
If you’d like to see what else I’ve been writing about, here’s my author page.
We’ve been navigating the kindergarten waters and we’ve found a school that we all love. We may not actually be able to let her go this fall, but theoretically, she’ll be starting this year. Gulp.
Matthew continues to charm me daily and I’m quite positive that I couldn’t possibly be more under his spell.
I mean, seriously, look at this kid…
Craig ran in a race on Sunday, then came home and signed us up for another in two short weeks. I’m having his sanity tested, don’t worry.
Katie will actually be running her first race that day and she’s so excited about it.
Speaking of Katie, she gets more outgoing and brave every day.
I never thought she’d willingly do something like this:
I just wrapped up a huge project on Saturday that I’ll be able to tell you more about in a couple of weeks, but what it means for right now is that I’ll have more time to spend here on itsm, which makes me giddy.
Thanks for your patience with me and for coming back to check in on me from time to time. xo
