....but about 10 months ago my life started on the most fantastic journey and my blog took a backseat.
In August of last year we found out we were expecting a baby!
When this new change made it's way in to our life my creativity and my blog really took a backseat, and I have only written a few times since than.
I have shared a few things since being pregnant like the reveal of his gender, his nursery, our preparations for him, my goal to be able to stay home with him over the next few years and so on, but my big goal that I set for myself after his arrival was to come back to this blog and pick up where I left off.
So first off let me start before I re-introduce myself, that I introduce you to the handsome new addition to our family, Mr. Hudson McKinley...
I cannot explain the feelings that have taken over me since I heard his cry for the first time and was able to hold him against me...it is pure bliss and I am so thankful for him in every way.
Now that he is here, and I have spent the past two weeks staring in to his eyes and kissing his forehead every 30 seconds, I really want to get back in to blogging daily not only to have a place to share all the exciting memories about Hudson and document his growth, but to have a place that still gives me those amazing friendships, and the creative spot to share any feeling that crosses my brain.
Blogging isn't just a hobby, it's a therapy, it's an art, it's a place to go when you want to share your happiest moments or if you need to vent your deepest fears.
This blog has been one of my life's biggest blessings in it's own way, and it's time to come back to this missing piece of my heart.
So let me re-introduce myself, I am Hallie.
