Life goes on

My blog has been terribly neglected for months.

I think it's because I'm very much a creature of habit.

When I'm posting on my blog regularly, it comes naturally. I enjoy the writing and make time for it. It's expected. It gets done.

But once I miss a few days, it's easy to skip the next few days. Days become weeks, weeks become months, and next thing ya know, I've only managed to write a 15 meager posts in the last three months. (such as this, this, or this one.)

Contrary to how it may appear, I don't like neglecting my blog. I haven't lost interest, but it hasn't been a priority lately. And truly, I don't think it should ever be a priority, as it's just a little hobby of mine. But if I can make time for unnecessary things like Facebook, Pinterest, and massive amounts of blog reading, certainly I can make time for my own blog.

Sometimes I continue to be surprised at how time consuming blogging is. The typing part is quick. Sometimes the revisions take awhile, making sure that what I want to convey is actually apparent in my writing. Uploading photos to the computer, editing the photos, and then uploading them into a blog post take awhile too. It helps if I'm remembering to take pictures in the first place. Unfortunately, I'm really bad about remembering to have my camera with me, and my phone takes terrible quality photos that make me cringe. And I feel like a post without photos is just no fun at all.

With that said, let's share some photos, shall we?

My sweet little Isabelle, at 13 months, is thisclose to walking. She can cruise around all over the place holding on to something, be it the edge of the couch, the edge of the table, or her little playskool walk 'n ride toy. In fact, she's even taken just a few teeny steps completely on her own, but she's definitely still a crawler right now.
Kaylee is getting to the age where she doesn't want to stop and pose for pictures for me. She's definitely to the age where she can give me exasperated looks when she's not interested in the pictures I'm trying to take. We went to Kansas City a few weeks ago, and at the zoo, Kaylee wanted a picture with her current favorite animal, the red panda.

Also in Kansas City, Isabelle found this awesome hat at the Gap. No, we didn't buy it, but it made for a funny photo. (The tramp you see clutched in Isabelle's hand (Tramp, as in, Lady and the Tramp) was with our family for a short 5 hours. He got lost somewhere in KC, but we're hoping someone found him and gave him a good home.)

Now was a very inopportune time to come back, and make it sound like I'm going to rededicate myself to blog and post much more regularly. We leave this week to go to Florida! We're a bunch of Disney addicts, what can I say? Anyway, vacation or not, I'm really going to try to be a better, more consistent blogger. After all, I know you've missed me! :)

Did you know today is Colombus day? If you could set sail for anywhere today, where would you go? 

I'd love to visit Australia. I'd split my time between Sydney, doing all the city things like shopping, eating, and touristy things, and the outback, doing all the outdoorsy, hiking stuff. You wanna come along?!

  2. Yea for a post & yea for your upcoming vacation!!

    I would LOVE an Alaskan cruise but I think it might be a little chilly this time of year. Then again.... considering how my pregnancy thermastat is freezing Clayton, Aubrey, and our dog out of our house, the temperatures in Alaska may be just about right.

    I agree it's hard to find time to blog, or at least blog "well." We love your updates, though, so we'll be here whenever you have time :)

  5. I'm glad to see you back :)
    Isabelle's face in that picture with the hat says it all.

    You're going to Disneyworld again?! So crazy!! I forget it's been a whole year since you went I guess. And I would totally hop on a plane to Australia with you! I'd also love to see Italy, especially to sample all the food (and see the gorgeous scenery)

  19. I'm a creature of habit too. and Seeing how I missed a TON of your blogs I've spent the better part of the last hour reading them!

    Disney is so fun!

    If I could set sail anywhere it would be to Ireland. Part of my family is from there, and it just looks like its beautiful from pictures and everything you see.
