Six months later…

posted on: Friday, January 22, 2016


Last Summer was weird, there’s just no better way to state it. We experienced a transition in the form of a new apartment and neighborhood (that’s where we left off), but it really was a transition within a transition. This whole past year has been a transition and it’s not quite done yet. To be honest, we are currently smack dab in the middle of beautiful, complicated, wonderful transition. More on that soon, I promise. Also, how many times can I say the word transition in one paragraph? (I’m done now.)

Those summer months weren’t the easiest, but they were really good for me. I can see that now, thankfully, and I can see the refining of my soul that occurred and that who came out on the other end is a lot stronger and much happier. Trials are like that, I suppose. I mean, “what doesn’t kill you…”, right? That being said, I’m relieved to be on the other end of that season. I feel like I’m taking a deep breath for the first time in a long time. It feels good, you know?

So I realized, just a month ago, that it had been a very long time since I’d logged in and stared at a blank blog post. Six months on the nose, to be exact. Part of me wasn’t sure that I really missed this space and I didn’t want to force anything on here that didn’t feel right. My number one goal with blogging is to always be genuine, honest, and true to myself. I also didn’t want to give up writing here just because it was more work. Also, as I’m sure many of you have noticed, blogging isn’t what it used to be. I had to give myself time, as much time as it took, to know definitively whether or not I wanted to spend any more time on this, on writing for myself.

The verdict: I do. I do! I want to keep noting all of the most wonderful things in this beautiful life that Adam and I are creating for ourselves, especially with what life has in store for us this next year. While it’s not time to share everything just yet, it feels like now is the right time to come back here and get back to the joy I found in writing in this outlet of mine. I still want my family to know what we’re up to and if that’s all this blog ever does, keep a journal of this time and season of our lives for us and our families, then it’s worth it. I’m so happy to be back sharing these little facets of myself, and what I love, with you. It feels good.

  • Katy, I am so glad you’ve chosen to continue your blog— especially because I just found it! Through Instagram, which now that I think of it, why does that sound kinda creepy? I hope it’s not, lol Your words and your photos are beautiful and I look forward to seeing where your transitions will take you ☺️ xo, Steve
