I had to a double take when I opened up my blog page, because my last post was in September of 2016. I kept refreshing it because that couldn’t possibly be correct. Alas, I did not post one.single.post. in 2017. Here we are, the first day of 2018, a new year, a clean page, a fresh start of sorts. Last year was a year full of change and adjustment and I guess the year escaped me. To say my blog took a back seat to life is an understatement. Sadly, it wasn’t even an after-thought most days, which is okay. I miss it though.

I started my blog in October 2011, as more of an online journal to talk about life as a first time Mom. Of the years and after the birth of Everly it evolved into more than that. Now, 6 something years later I have decided to make some changes over here. This year I plan to really expand on the roots of my blog which includes a facelift and a name change. I have been thinking about changing the name of my blog for months and months but couldn’t decide on something I loved. I want it to be something more encompassing, but still hold true to the foundation and reason I started it in the first place: my kids. The name came to me one night in bed while I was brainstorming and I am happy with it.

I am not going to share it just yet, but I promise it is coming soon. I am still deciding if I will stay with WordPress or move somewhere else. There are a lot of things to sort out but I am excited about it. I hope you will all join me and my littles on this journey of expansion. I feel like I am no longer baby-stepping my way through motherhood. I would say it’s more like leaping through? Something like that. Hehe.

I wish you all a Happy New Year and all the best in 2018.
