“Has this blog been abandoned?”

"Has this blog been abandoned, or moved elsewhere?"

A few months ago I received this email from a reader.  My response was that, though it would very much appear that way, in fact no, not abandoned, just on hold.  At least that had been my plan when I finally allowed myself to take some time off  just before the birth of my daughter.  Everyone says it goes fast--and whoosh! it is now two years later.

In my time away I have been deeply relishing the days with my 1.5 and 3.5 year old darlings.  Trying to be there.  Trying to be present.  Trying to be in the moment.  Hell, most days just trying to keep the house standing.  Above is my very proud son's hand with french breakfast radishes from his "very own garden".  He loves making radish toasts.  They both try to race each other to the cherry tomato patch.  I am so grateful for these days with them.

But with pre-school starting up this past week, and this weekend me even getting away for the first time in years for a writing conference, the gears are slowly starting to turn once again.

So, not abandoned.  But yes, moved elsewhere for a very special little while.  And back again with a great deal of new perspectives and appreciation.  Stay tuned.
