I always feel a certain amount of guilt when I click on the blogging tab. For me blogging is that like that messy office that you never have the time to clean. It's there staring you in the face and yet you will go weeks...or maybe even months and months... without cleaning it up. Regardless of my unpredictable blogging habits, I am here now so I might as well say a few things, right?
This past month has been insanely intense. The highest of the highs and some of the lowest of the lows. Sometimes I think life gives us the best and worst of both. At the same time. What a nice lady that life gal is, huh?
Example: having a new baby. Those little ones are so sweet and you are so in love with them, but at the same time you are mentally and physically exhausted and you don't fit a single thing in your closet. (or at least I didn't for a very long time...)
And how are we to appreciate the good without the bad? Isn't that what people always say? (I'm making a scrunchy face right now because I'm quite sure I could appreciate the good without anything bad happening to me at all if just given the chance!)
Still, that isn't how it works. Not by a long shot. And you know what? I think I'm okay with that. Because the good seems to always outweigh the bad every time.
At the beginning of this month I embarked on an adventure to which I invited myself and didn't take a lot of time to think through. When my friend Rachel said she was going with another friend to New York at the beginning of June to attend BEA, I literally begged her to take me. And because of my amazing friends and family who were able to help watch my children, I was able to go. It was right before my sister's wedding and it was really short notice for everyone involved. And yes, I freely admit... I was kind of running away.
But all of that craziness didn't seem to matter the moment I looked out the window of the plane and realized that the next week was mine. I had no one to worry about except myself for the next few days and I was going to enjoy every single minute of it. And I did.
Stay tuned if you want to hear the rest of my story. I fully intend to post all my thoughts and pictures--at least all the good looking ones--here. ;)
