Hello my blogging friends! I have missed all of you, blogging, this community so much. I never intended to take about half a year off from blogging but life has been so crazy and I had to put this hobby of mine on the back burner. As I mentioned in previous posts, I have three kids and one was a baby (he’s now 15 months!) but I can’t remember every mentioning that I am also in school for medical billing/coding (I’m over half way done *insert all the praise hands). Those things, plus my older boys being back in school (which just ramped up the activities, playdates, birthday parties and obviously school activities and commitments) and keeping a household running with a husband who works very hard for us 60 hours a week just took a toll on me. I mention all these things so if I ever am gone for an extended period of time again I can just refer back to this post and keep it rolling. Also, I feel like by writing this all out I am giving myself grace for missing so many months and I can just pick back up where I left off.
During the past 6 or so months that I have been gone, I have be able to read close to 50 books! I’m quite amazed at this fact and for 5 of the months it was just reading a chapter here or there but this last month I have been able to read for a few hours every night and tonight it finally dawned on me that I could use some of that time to blog. So here we are and I can’t wait to share with you what I have been reading, what I plan to read and all other bookish fun I can think of.
My goal is to post at least 1-2 times per week. I also want to start getting back into twitter and bookstagram to immerse myself back into this community. Also, I have been reading through lots of blogs while I was away but I wasn’t commenting or liking so that is something I immediately want to get back to doing.
See you soon!
