Getting Back to Blogging.......

As I was posting a comment on a sweet friends blog today, I came to the realization I have been feeling like I have to meet certain expectations and try to edit things out to say things just right. I am struggling in life and blogging and I brought myself back to reality this week. That is why the lack of posts in my little corner. I realized, I did not start my blog for others or I started it so I could remember each detail. Life flies by so fast and I wanted a place to have it all written down or at least some of it. I feel I have gotten wrapped up in how can I sound good or fit in, what I have tried to do my whole life. I need to be more honest with myself and be who I am. Not try to fit that mold, who I think I should be. I started my blog as a journal for myself and I really have gotten away from that. So enough of my rambling, I am going to try to get back to my main purpose of blogging, our life as a family with 5 cupcakes and the sweet things God has in store for us.

I leave you with this sweet picture from yesterday, you would think going to a wedding with 5 kids would be torcher (that is what I was thinking) but it really was a wonderful and relaxing day........
Autumn is just so sweet and she loves her little tongue. We had just come home from a wedding and she fell over on the couch.This is how she ended up.

This touches home for me, I was in the same spot a couple of weeks ago. I am so glad I'm not alone, it's inspiring to read your blog and I thank you for reminding me as to why I started to blog too :)
Hope your having a great weekend !!

Crist, I have been feeling the same EXACT way. It has been making me feel so sad. I have not posted much of anything and even considered not blogging anymore. I have not posted much of my work, because I feel it is not good enough. Then I also came to the realization that this is my journey. Thank you so much for posting this...it just helps me move forward even more.

Great big hugs to you:)

I'm really glad you shared this, Cristi. I commented back to you on my blog too, but wanted you to know that I really appreciated what you said and I'm really looking forward to following along with you as you let more of the real you shine through, and I'm going to try to do the same.

Your daughter is a peach! So lovely! :)
Love to you!

Very true! It can be really hard to be yourself on a blog. I often try to have the writing style that is the same of other bloggers and then I get the most comments when I actually write the way I write. It's like readers have a little instinct of who is being real in their writing and who isn't. :)

Blessings,
Maggie
