As of late, I've been quiet in this space.
Over the past few months, I've been thinking quite a bit about writing and sharing bits of my life with the world. After writing about my journey to motherhood and writing here somewhat infrequently over the past (almost) two years, I needed some time to pause and reflect on what was next. The past few months have helped me decide that I do indeed want to continue writing. In fact, as a part of my intentions for the new year, I want to make writing a regular practice - to take time to slow down and document the simple beauty of my family's days.
Yet, I felt like I needed a fresh start - a new space (and a new blog name!) to represent the life I'm living right now - which is primarily focused on nurturing my family and other important relationships, raising my daughter, creating a cozy home, and weaving creativity into our family's daily rhythms.
In a sense, this journal - both in its name and in the intentions behind its start - was perfect for navigating my first steps of motherhood and the radical changes to my identity and sense of purpose that followed. It's been a space of flux - which is exactly where I have been.
I hope you will join me as I continue on my journey. I'm still working to get my new space in order. In the coming weeks, I'll be adding more information in the sidebars, as well as an "about me" page.
But, as of now, you can find my words, photos, and story here.
