Oh, hi there!

I’d say it’s about time for an update. Blogging is a challenge for me because I want everything to be perfect before posting. I really want to get better at just putting myself out there – even with mistakes – so I’m trying again!

I finally faced reality to see when my last blog post was . . .Screen Shot 2017-03-29 at 3.44.07 PM

Oh, yeah, that was the day I found out I was pregnant with Oliver! It’s no wonder I haven’t finished my NYC posts or anything else since then. I planned to blog during my pregnancy but then I was frustrated that I never finished talking about my NYC Marathon experience, so my blog sat here neglected.

Then I thought once Oliver was born, I would have the time to get my blog updated and then I could begin blogging about my new, perfect child. Well, turns out, I was completely wrong. Not only did I not have time to blog once Oliver was here, I really didn’t want to. I’ve shared many pictures, thoughts, etc on my social media outlets, but it’s been hard to actually open up my blog to begin. Today, I’m changing that.

I read two articles yesterday that really hit home. First, The Flyway – Musings On Motherhood. While I don’t completely relate to everything mentioned, I made a connection. Second, I read What No One Tells You About C-Section Guilt. Since I discovered both of these articles at the same time I’ve been tugging at myself to begin blogging again, I took it as a sign that I am ready.

I think I’m finally ready to open up and put together my thoughts (in writing) about Oliver’s birth story and the months that followed. Stay tuned.
