We'll call this part two.
I've been here before. Well, not quite here, but you know. I've done the whole blogs-sharing mumbo jumbo before. And I liked it. It motivated me to take pictures and be active, which is a good thing for me. But then my life kind of exploded for a bit...so I stopped. And for seven months, I went silent. I said my goodbyes and wasn't sure if I'd ever return to blogging. I gave my (very few) readers a brief "goodbye" but pretty much left them in the dust to focus on the more important, real parts of my life. So, here I am, seven months later...missing blogging. I've missed sharing. And I've missed living a bit outside myself.
So, I'm back! One of the aspects of blogging that I've missed the most is its ability to push me, whether to take more pictures, try to improve the pictures I am taking, get my ass off the couch and, you know, go outside and enjoy the world. I'm the type of person who needs that motivation, because I am just too comfortable sitting on the couch in my pajamas watching Big Bang Theory or reading. What can I say, I'm an introvert who's happy doing little to nothing. But, at the same time, that's just a waste sometimes.
This past year has been a little bit of a whirlwind. I started out 2012 engaged, but by June I wasn't anymore. No worries though, Antoine and I are happy and still living in sin with our furry children. In a lot of ways, 2012 was a rough year...adjusting to changes in my relationship, my job and other aspects of life. But I have every confidence that 2013 is going to be a great year. Antoine is no longer consulting, he's found a job in Dayton! And, we have a boat load of hotel reward points and skymiles from his days of consulting, so we have a ton of travel adventures planned this year including a quick trip to Montreal for my birthday in less than two weeks. So exciting!
My hope is that small group of original followers will come back, and hopefully I'll find some new readers along the way. So, stay tuned...
