And then I walked away.

It has been almost a year since my last blog post.
I didn't intend for it to be that long.
I tried more than once to write but the words just wouldn't come.

I tried to write at the one year mark after losing Zoe in March.
I tried to write when our rainbow baby was born in April.
I tried to write when we began following God's calling into ministry in May.
I tried to write when we realized that we now have a third child with FPIES in June.

But the words just never came and time continued to go on.

So at that I decided I needed to walk away from blogging and my etsy shop
for a season and just be ok with that.

I don't know if or when I will peruse an etsy shop again as life is completely different
now than it was a year or two ago.
Honestly though, I'm ok with that.
I love the life we're living now.
It's messy and crazy and so wonderful all at the same time.

What is it about the new year that makes you stop and reflect?
Looking back on this past year I can't believe how much has changed and how our family has grown.
We're in such a different place now and I'm thankful for the journey.
While it hasn't all been fun or things I would have chosen for myself or my family,
I'm thankful for where God has us now.

I  hope to continue to blog again a little more frequently and
I hope you'll continue to follow me on this crazy wonderful journey called life.
