i havent opened my laptop since the last time i wrote.
life has been, uh, overwhelming.
the transition from 1 to 2 kids is HARD.
especially when number 2 cries. a lot.
Molly June has cried for most of her life. not always a full on cry, but shes fussy. very much unlike her sister. if you follow me on insta then you have seen the struggle and the joy. im not even sure why i have this space, except for the fact that i know as soon as i get a grip on my life again, i'll want a place to write.
the girls are both sleeping and this has happened exactly 4 times in the last 14 weeks.
14 weeks tomorrow.
i cant believe it.
i have words to say, being all stored up in my brain for the chance to get them out.

i sometimes forget what it was like to have moments in the day where no one needs me. or where i could punch out a blog post, a load of laundry & a shower all before noon.
we have been blessed, oh so blessed! we are more tired than we ever could imagine, but we wouldnt change this life.
i miss this space. i miss writing words. i miss having 'me' time.
3 months into this 2 kids thing and i think its time for me to start remembering who i am.
a writer, a memory keeper, a feeler, and a lady who longs to be heard. it wont be pretty over here, but then again, when has it ever been? im just going to take a deep breath and share it all, because thats what i do.
its so good to be back.
