It’s been a while…

Well hello!

I’ve been on quite the journey the last 2.5 years. After more than 5 years of consistent blogging I disappeared on here. I’ve been thinking about returning to blogging for a while now because it was such a nice outlet for me and a way to preserve memories and milestones of life, family, and running. But I’ve been putting it off because so much time has passed and so much has happened during that time. The thought of explaining it all/starting over was overwhelming. So I decided I would return to blogging without any pressure on myself to post regularly or to tell my whole story all at once. Instead I’ll tell it bit by bit and catch up on all that’s happened in life, relationships, my kids, training and races, all the ups and downs along the way, and whatever happens from here.

To sum it up, I’d say 2016 was about survival, 2017 was about change, and 2018 (so far) has been about making amends and finding peace. I have learned so much about myself along the way. I’m excited to share more about all of this soon.

I really enjoy writing as a form of therapy and expression, especially as an introvert. Writing helps me reflect and process all the craziness that is in my brain. I express myself through writing much better than I do in speaking. I am nearing the end of another school year (my 10th as a teacher!), there is so much going on including some very exciting recent developments, and a lot I want to say. It’s time. I’m back!!!

  1. I’m so glad to see a new post from you! You’ve been on my heart and mind since your last post and I wanted to reach out but also didn’t want to seem creepy. I found your blog through pintrest when I was searching for frozen vegetarian meals to prep for my first child. I loved following your journey of running, raising children, and nutrition. I’m so glad you’ll be back on here!

  2. I love your blog! I follow you since I had my baby in 2014. I hope all the best for you. ❤

    So glad you’re back! I’ve thought of you many times over the past year.

  4. I have been following your blog since December of 2012 when I Google searched ‘day in the life of a 1 month old’ shortly after my first son was born. I’ve tried searching for you a few times thinking that maybe you started a blog on a different page. So happy to see that you are back!

    • Thanks so much! I am so happy I documented so much of my kids lives when they were babies. That’s a huge reason why I want to come back. I love preserving those memories.

  5. Welcome back! I also had to stop blogging for awhile but have been seriously considered giving it a try again. I stopped reading blogs for quite awhile too so I was behind on yours. Random but I was also at that HORRIBLE Hot Chocolate race in DC too. haha

  6. Oh, so glad you’re back! :))) I’ve been following your blog since 2014, all through my two pregnancies and postnatal periods (never stopped running, too). I’m so excited to find out how you’ve been doing and how is your running journey going.
