a brave new blog

After a rather long sabbatical from the world of multi-media, I have decided to once again venture into the world of blogging.

Harper less than 5 days old with her Big Brother

My last entry was in March of 2012. It amazes me how much has changed since that last sentence was typed. Within the scope of 2 months from that last post my real-life took over and took me away from the computer. Having a baby, then moving, then starting a small side venture, then moving again, then going back to work – it all left me with such little precious time to my little family.


the new home -- FINALLY

And so, blogging had to be put on the back burner. And then it went from the back burner to the kitchen sink. And then my little blog went into the cupboard. You know the one…the one way at the top and to the right. And there it sat and waited patiently for me to come back – when I was ready.


the 1st project I HAD to tackle when we moved in: new mantle & surround, new flooring, new paint --stay tuned for the lovely AFTER

Among the whirlwind of 2012-2013, I kept stalking here and there on all the blogs close to my heart. It amazed me how I still relied on these blogs to inspire as well as entertain me. Whether I was pumping in the wee hours of the night or coming home from a long day of work, I still found myself logging on. Always there and ever present..my friends from afar were still close and still sharing their lives with me. It made me realize I missed my little blog.

After baby girl’s first birthday, I decided that if ANYTHING my blog could be used as a candid journal/reflection. I believe if I commit to this aspect, I will remove the pressures that consumed the enjoyment I found in blogging. This endeavor will hopefully allow me to focus on my trials & triumphs, cute pictures of my children (see above), a home update here and there (stay tuned), and ultimately change the dynamic of "wanting" to post rather than "having" to post. I hope this is a game changer for me.

So with that being said…I welcome you, dear reader to a brave new blog.

Cheers~

  1. Eeeeeeek!!!! Imagine my excitement when I saw your new post in my blogroll. ELATED!!! I have not forgotten about your sweet blog & thank goodness for IG...otherwise, I would be in serious E withdrawal, my friend.

    I hear you on the dynamics of blogging & the "burden". I decided a long time ago that it doesn't matter how many comments I get or how often I post or what I post about or what the critics say. I want to blog for myself, to chronicle my life & family for MYSELF. It has renewed my joy in blogging again.

    Can't wait to see more, sweet gal!! H & T are gorgeous!! You sure know how to make 'em. ;)

  5. Welcome back! And forget about the pressure. Think about it as something for you. That is why I do it! I'm not a scrap booker or a diary keeper or even a great photo-printer, but I think I will look back on this blog as a place where I wrote down some of the whirlwind that is early motherhood! And you write better and do better projects than I do, so you can always look down on my blog if you need that!

  11. Even, many western scholars are now emphasizing on the fact that Islam came
    up with most prudent ideas through Quran. The main reason
    is the gender-biased interpretation of the Qur'anic text by men of religion. The meaning of "tajweed' is to
    make perfect or proficient.
