Is this thing still on?

Hi there, remember me? Yes, it’s been a while since I posted. A long while. But life is good. Really good.


The Mini Athlete will be FOUR next week – can you believe it? I’m looking forward to throwing a “non-Pinterest-worthy” party for him. I think I’m going to try to start a new trend.

Yes, hot dogs, watermelon and cookie cake at the park are still the right ingredients for a great birthday party…I hope.

Little Miss is full of spunk – and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Those two keep me on my toes, but we sure have a lot of fun!

Work has slowed down for the summer, our evenings are spent out playing baseball in the yard, and I find my husband and I yawning and being ready for bed before 10pm. Yes, we’re getting old too.

I’m learning that life doesn’t have to be busy to be good. And I, for one, am enjoying a little down time.

I’d like to start blogging regularly again, but I’m not making any promises. We’ll see how inspired I get. The world of blogging has changed so much since I started….there is so much more pressure to be poignant. Deep. “Pin” or “Tweet”-worthy. And sometimes I just want to hang out with some of my old blog friends, writing about something or nothing, and not really caring about how much traffic any particular post gets. Do people still blog like that? Do people still read blogs like that? I sure hope so.

We’ll see.

So…what’s new in your world?

    Welcome back!
    A summer slow down sounds nice. Mmy company gets busy in the summer, product design & development, so not really sure why, but it’s fun.
    My toddler is almost 2 years old. We’re having a cookout at his great grandma’s since our condo is short on outdoor space. It won’t be pinterest worthy either, but it will be fun.
    I’ve been running with my son in the jogging stroller, finally. It is so nice getting outside first thing in the am. How’s the PiYo going?

    I read blogs like that! In fact, that’s about all I read and I love it. Congrats on enjoying life with your two littles… so much more important than page views or pinterest-competitions. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear what you have to say, when you have time to say it. Cheers.

    I agree with your statement regarding changes in the blog-world. I gravitate to my original bookmarks- you, Meghann, Kara, Caroline, and a few others. I always enjoy your musings, even if it’s about nothing in particular 😉 Beautiful family photo!

  8. That’s still how I blog and still the kind of blog I read. It’s much more personal. And I’m All For non-pinterest-worthy parties! Simple leaves time for the most important things.
