I was very much a "I write for me" type of gal. I had a lot that was going on in my life, and like most of you, I wanted a place to write it all down so that I could look back and remember it all one day. Since 2010, I have writen over 500 posts. A lot of them I have since reverted back to draft form, because in my very early blogging days, my posts didn't make much sense and were a lot of randomness (not that I am not still random, I just like to think I make a little more sense today).
Anyways, with everything that I have been through, I have tried to keep it pretty real on here without going into too much detail. I mean, it is the internet, and even though I only have 27 followers on GFC, randos can still read here, and I would prefer not to have a stranger find out where I work/live and try to steal my puppy. You know, totally rational thoughts for a Tuesday.
Anyways, over the course of the last year, I have been trying to put myself out there more. The first time I commented on someone else's blog (that I didn't know IRL), I was nervous. Would they think I was a creeper/stalker? Never mind that I loved getting comments on my own, but yeah, I'm weird. The first time I linked up, I didn't think anyone would ever click on my little hyperlink to come visit. But people do, and it's fun. But, that also means that I have gotten away from writing for me, and writing more for link-ups. I really want to work on that. I want this place to be more original and less of a copy/paste of what everyone else is doing.
I'm still going to tell you about my weekends, I am still going to talk about my struggles with eating and being healthy, but I really want to focus on why I started this in the first place. My life is pretty boring most days, but it is full of a lot of really great moments that I want to enjoy more. I want to look back at this time (with a lot of big changes on the horizon) and know how I was feeling, not just what I was wearing/doing/eating.
So, after all of that rambling, I guess my point is, I am going to try and change things up a little bit here. And in my head, I think that people will notice? (And tomorrow I am already planning a link up post, soooooo, yeah, not sticking to my guns very well).
And because I hate having two posts in a row with no pictures, here is what Tucker looks like most nights of week. Burrito'd up on top of our couch. Either that or he is cuddling with one of us. It's pretty precious :)
