I started this blog during a sad time in my life. I was struggling with depression and just out of grad school I had a meaningless job. The only highlight in my work day was sharing a 10am snack with a co-worker friend. My husband suggested that I start a blog that focused on the positive. I did. And I have for nine years. Some days it is easy to share happiness and other times I seek the good in the bad.
Over the past nine years we have moved states and homes. Eric and I have had two daughters. Our animal family has gained and lost some. Our human family has also gained and lost. Normal life stuff has happened and you have been here with me as I have tried to share the positive moments and little things that make life so very precious. You have been with me through huge joy and bittersweet goodbyes.
When I became a mother I couldn't wait to share photos here! Both times. When we bought our first home I was thrilled to share with you. I somehow managed to discuss heavy issues like miscarriage and post-partum depression here on this blog and try to find the light in the dark. I thank you for reading and for being here with me.
Some days I wonder if I should even continue to blog and other days I cannot imagine what my life would be like without this treasured document. I keep coming back. Some days I barely check in and other days I force myself to stop writing.
Anyway, thank you for reading.
