I can't believe it's been almost 3 months since I last posted on this little blog of mine.
despite my absence, i think about blogging often.
and sometimes really really miss it.
there are several reasons why i've taken a step back-
the first, and probably most to blame, is laziness.
the past few months I have been shamefully lazy.
i love blogging, but sometimes, it really feels like work.
i missed the days when blogging was fun.
the second reason for my absence i'm a little embarrassed to admit-
the reason being: jealousy.
ridiculous, i know. especially considering how truly blessed my life is.
but, i'm human, and sometimes jealously rears its ugly head.
if you've spent much time reading blogs, you probably know how many amazing bloggers are out there.
thousands upon thousands.
of all these amazing blogs and bloggers,
there are, more specifically, many fabulous mommy blogs.
and well, i'll just say it-
I've had a really hard time watching all the lovely growing bellies out there.
not because there is anything wrong with being pregnant or having babies.
in fact, quite the opposite.
my problem is that I want to have my own bun in the oven,
and, well, things just haven't happened for me yet, and it's taking much longer than anticipated.
so, there it is,
jealousy and laziness.
two very ugly qualities that have kept me from such a beautiful and diverse network.
so, i'm going to try and be better.
besides, who am i kidding-
when the day comes for me to be a mother,
this space will, most certainly, become a reservoir for all our happy, sad, and poopy memories.
it's all good.
i've admitted two areas of my self that need improvement,
and i feel pretty good about it.
In other news,
this blog is in desperate need of a makeover.
Anyone have any recommendations?
Also, anyone know of any fabulous photoshop tutorials online that are easy to follow for beginners.
I need some help.
That's all I have for today.
I hope each and every one of you are doing well,
despite the laziness and jealousy, I have missed you all!
