I'm Back!

I never meant to step away from here for five months. Every time I thought about blogging, I just didn't feel like I had anything to say and/or I just didn't feel like it.

And then there's Facebook...

When I started blogging in 2005 or 2006, I made many friends and enjoyed reading their blogs and commenting on a regular basis. Then we all migrated to Facebook, and most of us let our blogs go. We reduced our thoughts and experiences to a sentence (or two, or three) - the Cliff Notes version of our lives.

For me, Facebook became a huge time sucker upper. While I love keeping in touch with my friends and family there, I just spend too much time doing so. A few weeks ago I decided that I'd get off Facebook for the summer, and use my blog and Instagram to share our summer adventures instead. Last night I deactivated my account.

So here I am! I am working with Faith to freshen up the blog. I can't wait to see what she designs for me.

I'm going to miss my Facebook buddies, and I hope they will find me here and check in (and comment!). Maybe I'll make some new friends as well.

So here's to a Facebook-free summer!


  1. Just wrote a long comment but my iPhone lost it. Dang. So I'll keep it short and just say hi. :)

    1. Hi, Donna! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  2. Enjoy your Facebook-free summer! It IS a major time sucker-upper. I like how you said that, and I'm looking fwd to more blogging! But most of all have a summer to remember with Michaela. She's growing up so fast!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! Reading your comments is one of the rewarding aspects of blogging.
