Hello loves. It probably seems that I have abandoned this blog in 2017 but I haven’t! Much like 2016, 2017 has been a whirlwind of crazy. Life seems to fly by so fast. The days are long and entirely too short all at the same time. It is bizarre how that happens.
Currently we are dealing with strep in our house, allergic reactions to medication, etc. As you all know these are sensitive areas for me. I am trying hard to remain balanced and calm, but it is difficult. I have had a few meltdowns that I’m not proud of but sometimes it is impossible to be composed. I pray that the sickness stays away and the warm weather returns with health and happiness.
In other news, I started a new blog. I have grown to love blogging so much. This blog is my baby and I share such personal aspects of my life here. I feel comforted in the blogging community. You all comment, pray, share your stories and your support and it is really amazing. Blogging has been such a healing process for me in the past year, more than I ever thought it could be.
I will still update The Glimmer because it is my release. I can bring my fears, concerns, love, passion, worries, etc here and know that I have followers that read my stories and can relate or can sympathize. I can get the feelings out of me and make sense of them. This blog has helped me figure myself out as much as anything has this year.
My new blog is less personal and more “mommy blog.” Ha! I figured that I could put my OCD to good use. I can advise other moms on the best thermometers (as I own ALL of them and compare them constantly), diaper rash creams (yep, have tried all of those too.), or share my postpartum hair loss experience. I can show you how to make an amazing pineapple costume, take a fun father’s day photo shoot, or throw a pretty epic dino party. I am excited to have a blog that is a little more light hearted and shows a different side of me. The side that creates with my kids, has fun ideas, and lives in the present.
My new blog is called “Mommy is Exhausted” –which is quite fitting. Mommy IS exhausted. 24/7. Check it out if you get a chance. Share with your mommy friends. I have lots of ideas for the blog and very little time so I hope to keep it up as much as possible. 🙂
And again, thanks for reading everyone! I will be back soon with a real update! So much has happened the past few weeks.
