To My Loyal Readers

Hey Friends,

It’s been a long time since I’ve regularly posted here and I’ll admit that I’ve been trying to find my bearings since we moved to Texas in January. I’ve gotten really into Noonday Collection which has been an amazing support system, outlet for creativity and fundraising opportunity. So that’s good. I’ve also been really busy trying to get all of our adoption paperwork up to date with our new agencies. And then there’s the whole buying of a an older house (another fixer-upper, I know, I know…) and all that comes with that.

All that to say, I guess I feel like I’m finally finding my footing. Now that the dust is settling, I’m realizing how much I really miss writing. It’s such a great outlet for me, even if no one is really reading. Here’s the weird thing though, I haven’t been contributing new content but yet my reader numbers are still staying pretty high. This makes no sense but it does encourage me. I know, I totally just said that I don’t care if people read this but that’s obviously a lie. I care because it’s a way to connect, a way to learn, and a way to inspire others. I guess what I mean is, I’m not going to base my value on how many people read my blog.

On that note, I do plan to contribute more regularly with what’s been going on in my world and the world at large. What I really want to have also is more of what’s going on in YOUR world. I want this to be a place for many voices to be heard. Even voices that might seem to conflict with one another. This should be a safe place for ideas to be shared and explored. If you are interested in sharing about your experience with God, Social Issues, Parenting, Crunchiness and/or Adoption, I want to hear about it. We all do. Please post your ideas in the comments or email me directly.

Lastly, and mostly, I want to thank you for your loyalty. You’ve been an amazing community and support, even when you don’t agree with me. I appreciate you sticking around.

Take Care and Talk to You Soon,
