It’s been almost a year now can you believe it. This time last year I was sitting 9 month pregnant with not a clue in the world how much my life was about to change. The past year has been amazing, not at all easy, but wondrous. I was tested time and time again, forced to adapt and adjust as a person, and transformed as a person from a Homemaker to a stay at home mom.
I have learned a lot. Had a lot of time to contemplate about myself. About the type of person I am and the kind of person I want to be. And I am ready to return to blogging and share this journey with you. I want to thank you all for staying by my side during this past year through the sporadic or nonexistent posts.
I have received wonderful emails and comments and as always they mean the world to me.
Thank you for taking the time to let me know that my ramblings and little glimpses into our life bring joy to your day.
I have bounced a lot of ideas around in my head regarding what I want this blog to be. Should it be purely family oriented or more article oriented and I realized I want it to be both. This blog always has and always will be a hodgepodge, because that is who I am. I am a simple girl sharing aspects of my life, which evolve and change and encompass a great many things. I am not and will not ever be a niche blogger.
As I continue this journey in the blogging world, you will find many of the posts you know and love, but I will also be expanding to cover some new topics. I will also be doing some work on the blog itself. I had thought I would list out what could be expected, but that defeats the whole purpose of what I want.
So just in short you can expect from what you have already seen- posts on my family, homemaking, frugal living, life as an expat, posts about living in Germany, as well a some fun memes. But I will also expand to cover some new interests with an emphasis on simple and natural living. But you know me, there will be tons of other stuff tossed in too. I restrict myself, the sky is the limit and the possibilities are endless.
I hope that I can continue to write posts that you enjoy reading and I thank you for the bottom of my heart for taking the time out of your day to read my words.
And a Giveaway
As part of my return to blogging I wanted to offer something to all of you, as a thank you for sticking out this past year with me. I mentioned we will be adding a new emphasis on this blog, articles on a more simpler or crunchier if you will way of life, so I figured it only fair to start there.
One thing that I enjoy is supporting work at home moms (known online as wahm’s) and so when I needed a partner in crime on this giveaway, I contacted one of my favorite Wahms, Carrie over at The Silver Liner.
Carrie is a sweetheart. She has amazing customer service and wonderful craftsmanship. She makes a variety of household resuables ranging from mama cloth (reusable cloth feminine pads), to wetbags and reusable swiper products.
For this giveaway she is offering a set of dust swipers or dustpads (not the wetjet model). These can be used as a reusable alternative to swiffer refills.
Winner can choose one set of 2 dusters, one set of 2 swipers, or a set with one of each.
