but i realize it’s starting to look like one.
this blog is nearing its 8th [!!] birthday, and it has certainly undergone an evolution of sorts. it started off as a typical med student’s whine-fest, turned into a running/HLB of sorts, and then got a little . . . existential during the TTC days. there’s always been discussion of work/life balance and finding time for the important things with a busy schedule, and of course plenty of organization eye candy in the form of notebook/planner shots. there’s been a good amount of food [restaurant reviews + cooking projects — most notably doin’ time with martha]. and i’ve even featured a smattering of fashion, particularly during the time when i was anthro-obsessed, although i certainly don’t consider myself a style blogger by any means.
and now, i realize, there’s a WHOLE lot of baby.
while i know it’s probably fun for other new moms to read about annabel’s antics and my day care dilemmas, i realize that certainly may certainly alienate some of you reading this now [or perhaps you’ve already left, and i’m writing into a black hole]. the thing is . . .
i really am enjoying motherhood.
this new experience is dominating my life right now — as should probably be expected! still, one of the things this little blog project has always been for me is an outlet. a place to vent / explore ideas / mull over things, as well as celebrate the fun little moments that make life wonderful. so, while i have no plans to stop the baby photo barrage [can’t help myself], i don’t really want to become a full-blown mommy blog. i still want to be a LIFE blog, with focus on living intentionally and appreciating the gift of every new day.
