absence...

I hate it when I go too long without updating the blog. I love this blog. I love writing. It really is like therapy for me. And I love connecting with my readers. It's important to me to keep up with this blog. Right now it's my only creative outlet as a stay-at-home mom. I don't get to go to work every day to converse with other adults and use my brain for something other than singing itsy bitsy spider and changing diapers. But, you know, life happens. Liam started school last week (which he LOVES by the way) and Isabel is growing more and more each day. We're figuring out our new routine and trying to convince Liam that he doesn't need to climb into our bed in the middle of the night and Isabel that she doesn't need to wake up at 5:30 in the morning. So I've been tired and in a bit of a writing rut...but today I escaped.  

I texted Alex that I need to get some time to myself. After he came home and we had dinner I left my husband and babies playing choo choo train on the floor while I drove off to one of my mommy sanctuaries...Starbucks! Oh, it is so nice to just sit and write without being interrupted. It's so nice to sip on my delicious chai tea latte. I'm thankful for these quiet moments that come so few and far between. 

So forgive me for my absence, friends. I'm always blown away that people actually read this thing. Keep on reading as we continue on this crazy journey of life together. How's everyone else doing? I hope you are all taking just a little bit of time to be alone with your thoughts...sipping a chai tea latte (or beverage of your choice). 

A little bit of our weekend fun. I love that my babes love the water so much.
