Can I be super lame & say ‘time flies when you’re having fun’? Because it sure does. I can clearly remember when I first started this blog as a newlywed on 01/01/2015. 4 years, 4 homes, 2 states, & 2 kids later – here we are.
Did I say 2 kids?
Yes! Baby #2 is cooking as we speak.
When I first started this blog I thought I was going to be a virtual open book. But when it actually comes to sharing details about my family life – I’m not that comfortable with it.
I never shared most of our home improvement projects in our South Florida house – just one or two of the major ones. I purposely didn’t share my daughter’s straight out of Pinterest 1st birthday party. I liked the idea of sharing my art, but then have actually turned out to be pretty private about it here.
If I had to chose a word for 2019 (even though it’s March), it would be private. It’s funny because my word for 2018 was openness, though I don’t think I did a great job at that last year. I have come to realize that when it comes to my virtual footprint, I want to be a little more private.
What does this mean for Mrs. Dessert Monster? In reality, I don’t think anyone is going to feel a difference reading this blog. If I had gone forward without writing this post, I doubt anyone would have noticed much. But I want to use this opportunity as a type of ‘clean slate’.
Going forward, I will still be sharing recipes, crafts, and some religious or pro-life posts. What I won’t be posting: pregnancy updates, details about Cupcake or the new baby’s lives, or posts written for the sake of posting. I’ve never been super regular at writing, and it’s probably going to be even more sporadic going forward.
That being said, I am still an avid blog reader & thoroughly enjoy reading what you guys share!
I guess all this to say: I’m still here, just a little quieter.
