I'm Back, This Time I Hope for Good

So I wish I had an amazing story of why this blog has lain dormant for the last year and a few months. Maybe I've been off traveling the world, experiencing amazing things, and just too busy to keep up. Maybe I've been living in a tiny house in the middle of the forest with no WiFi connection (definitely not!). But no, the reason isn't something cool, amazing, or even incredibly interesting. I just got overwhelmed with life, with two kids, with a full-time away from home job, with a million to-do's that never seemed to get done. I  missed writing everyday, missed sharing the ups and downs of my cooking, exercise, and general life adventures, I just couldn't seem to get my head out of my behind, sit down and write. Hopefully that has changed today, hopefully I have turned a new leaf (maybe a whole tree).

A lot has changed and a lot is still the same. The kids got bigger, smarter, and ever more frustrating. I gave up running and picked up weight lifting and haven't looked back. I started a one women real food movement in my house to mostly negative reviews, but I'm SLOWLY wearing them down one whole grain at a time. I've read books I loved and books I can't believe ever made it to print. I grew another year older but hopefully wiser (and a few pounds smaller) and I have come to a better understanding of modern life for a working mom (it's tough!). I'm still married to my wonderful husband, I still have a love/hate relationship with my body, and I still love trying new things I find on Pinterest.

So why today? I'm not really sure,  I guess it would have made more sense on the 1st of January but I've never been much for cliche so I guess the 12th of January will have to do. I woke up this morning with the idea in my head that I would resurrect the blog. I told myself if I could just start typing everything would fall into place, so here I am tap tap tapping at my keyboard, hoping my words are falling into place. I plan on sharing all my upcoming adventures (two conferences I am so excited about, a new weight lifting plan, more attempts at ridding my home of processed foods, etc.) I hope people out there follow along, I'm excited to hear from anyone willing to read.

I plan on another post later today about my first new adventure for the year, but I'll leave you with a few of my favorite pictures from the past few months. Happy Monday!
