Maternity leave from the blogging world

I'm happy to report that I will be taking a maternity leave from blogging.  It might last a few months, or it might last indefinitely.

I did think that by changing the focus of my blog to DIY projects, recipes, and home improvement, I could keep my family more private.  I don't want my babies plastered all over the internet.

The truth is, I'm very much knee deep in the wedding rings to teething rings part of our life!  My days are filled with museum outings, Fall toddler crafts, and baby products.  I get excited to share all of that with my readers, but that is less exciting when I take out the personal elements, photos, and stories to keep my family safe.

There have also been occasions that Luke has said, "close that computer!" and "put down your phone!" and that is not the mom I want to be.

Blogging was perfect for me at the time that I started as it was a great outlet during nap time.  But with a baby girl on the way, I'm not going to have that down time.  And if I do, I want to spend it all being present in the moment.

I am going to leave up the posts as even I use them as reference.   I just looked up what to pack in my hospital bag on my own blog!  And I have shared my story of gestational diabetes with many people.

But stay tuned.  I am confident that I will always be creating, and hope to come back and share my art and projects someday!  Thank you for reading and following for all of this time!  Good-bye for now!
