I feel like I should have written this closer to Mackenzie’s birthday (at the end of July), when all of those “oh my gosh, my sweet baby girl is growing up so fast” emotions were going crazy. They’re still there, but I’m past feeling the tears coming on when I think about it or talk about it. It is so surreal to me that I’m the mother at all, and to have these two walking, talking, opinionated, maniacs in my house (they are so much like their father, ha!) – it blows my mind!
You may remember back in October when we went to Atlanta for Laura and Jeremy’s wedding. This time it was Beth & Josh’s turn to tie the knot. I’d been stressing about the dates ever since mid-November when we found out that Mackenzie’s first dance recital was going to be one of the first two weekends in June. I kept my fingers crossed that it wouldn’t be June 5th. It was, of course.
Right around this time nine years ago, this is what I was doing..
Well hello there strangers! It’s been a while. Things have been busy around here and I haven’t had a chance to sit down and write. I’m going to try to catch y’all up on the big things that have been going on now so this may be a little long. I promise lots of pictures and not too much yacking from me though! Ready?
Hello, hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Hey strangers! It’s been a while.
So, you know how I’ve been griping for the last few months about how busy work is and how I barely have time for anything outside of work and family time? I’m so, so happy to say that it is over! The deadline we’ve been working toward was June 26th and I am so, so glad that it has passed AND that I got all of my work done on time – SUCH a relief!!
I kind of don’t know where to start. I have a million posts swirling around in my head, I started making a list and it’s quite long and that’s just what I came up with off the top of my head. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t blog for a month. Work has been keeping me so busy and by the time I am done (which has been in the wee hours of the morning, for the last three weeks) with work for the day, the last thing I want to do is spend a second longer sitting in front of the computer. Even if it’s to write about things I enjoy.
Or in other words, I’m a big nerd. I’m okay with that. I am no good at coming up with post titles and for some reason when I wrote “Catch Up”, it made me think of ketchup. Then I remembered when I was younger seeing it spelled “catsup” and thinking it was strange. So there you go.
