crazy good things...

It has come to my attention by many of you that this blog has been a little neglected. It seems that I have taken an unintentional break from all things social media. there have been no tweets. no status updates. only a few pictures uploaded on instagram [because I just can't help it] and absolutely no posts written...honestly, there has been no thought of even sitting down and writing. want to know why?!
Because life has happened.
And I don't feel even a little bit bad about it.
In fact, I think this was exactly the kind of break that I needed.

This blog has grown into something that I never thought it would even come close to. i had some dreams and some hopes for it, but nothing like this. It has exceeding everything, and I'm so incredibly grateful that my husband is not the only one that reads it!
but with that said, and with this unintentional break the past few weeks, I've realized that it has completely consumed my thoughts and time.
What will I write about tomorrow?!
What post goes here.
What post goes there.
I feel guilty if I don't post.
But even more guilty when I do post, and I'm "social media-ing" my day away when I have a family that needs my attention more.
I've lost the reason why I love to blog.
I've seemed to have forgotten the reason why I started blogging in the first place.
I want to get back to that place.
That place where I didn't care about comments, page views or followers...not caring if my husband or my mom were the only people that read the blog.
Not feeling the pressure of "paid sponsor-ships  and everything that it brings...I have been incredibly blessed to have those sponsor-ships, don't get me wrong, but it takes the blog to a whole new level.

I've been able to do a lot of reflecting the past few weeks.

About life.
Family.
God.
Health.
Friends.
My little shop.
This blog.
Lost some sleep about it all.
And now I'm making changes.

Will I lose readers?
possibly.
Will my follower number go down?
probably.
But I'm ready to take this blog back.

There will no longer be any sponsorship options available.
My posts will be less frequent, but they will still happen.
things need to change.
Things are changing around here.
Crazy things.
Crazy good things.
Crazy, Good & Amazing things.

Hope you will stay with me.
Your emails, love, support, and dedication has made this blog possible.
Made it all worth it.
You have let me continue to write for a purpose.
But most importantly, let me document a life...
of being this little boy's mama.
