Whoa. Hi again. It’s me, I’m alive.
I swear I didn’t plan to drop off the face of the earth into a black hole. All I did was have a baby! …..and then I dropped off the face of the earth into a black hole.
Babies, man. I didn’t announce that I’d be taking time off from this blog because — well, because I didn’t think I’d need to! I’d be on leave from my real job, just gazing at my sweet snoozing bundle of joy, with plenty of time to think and reflect and write and maybe even whip up the next great American novel.
HA HA HO HO can you tell I had never met a baby before?
Well. My baby wouldn’t sleep, wouldn’t stop crying, wouldn’t let me put him down….…and then I accidentally let my domain expire, and it took a few weeks to get it back online and oh my goodness I’m so tired.
It’s getting better, slowly, and I guess I needed the break. Having a baby is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I’ve been grappling with the urge to quit everything else in my life to clear out more room for baby. But…yikes that doesn’t seem like a good plan. I need to learn to rest, not to quit, and be sure to leave some room for myself and the things that make me me.
A few years ago my life changed course when I stumbled upon the idea of intuitive eating on a random blog. And I want to be that random blog to as many people as I possibly can.
Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read here and for the incredibly kind, inspiring, insightful comments — I’ve fallen so behind on responding, but I want you to know that they mean the world to me. From the bottom of my heart, thank you thank you thank you. It’s good to be back.
Here’s to the last six months, and the next six months too. The time will fly and can truly change your life.
