Our Life: Blogging Hiatus is Over

I hope you can all excuse my recent absence. My time has been full of a lot more of this, and a lot less of my face shoved in my lap top - it's been lovely.

My little break started at the beginning of February. I received a call from the Architecture firm that has been giving me contract work for the last year. Things are slow & they don't currently need my help. At first I was sort of devastated. It is the closest I have ever coming to being let go from a job & it really got me down. But then I found it liberating.

I have spent the better part of the last year so busy I didn't know what to do with myself. I have been working 20+ hours a week, blogging, and I am in charge of the women's organization (Relief Society) at my church. And of course, somehow I was trying to squeeze parenting Tate & keeping up with running the house & making meals too. That phone call felt like a big release.

I have taken this time to get my bearings, be a more involved parent, & a more present wife. And now I am happy to be back to blogging.

I want you all to know how much your sweetly concerned emails, tweets, & comments mean to me. You are all why I write this blog. Thanks for being amazing.


  1. Hooray! I'm glad you're back!
    But I think the best thing about this is that you took the time in the first place to be present in your life. Being busy is overrated.
    Love you!

  2. Missed you, glad to know you are back!!

  3. Welcome back, we love you!

  4. Yay for toddler snuggles! They sure don't like to be still for very long, right?! RS president is a big job! I hope you have some great help! Good luck and glad you're back!
