Hello Again


I know it's been a while.  And I've missed being here.  I hope things are going well with you.

Life has been fast and furious around here these past few months and I simply needed to step away from so much time online in order to keep my sanity.

I had lost my zeal for blogging.  Sort of lost my direction, in a way.  There are so many voices out there telling me how to improve my blog, how to make more money from  blogging, how to promote yourself better...  I just got tired of it all.

I needed a little break.  So I took a couple of months off and it's been good.

*****

Life has been a bit hectic lately and I am desperately trying to be intentional about how I spend my time.  

More intentional in my walk with Jesus.  More intentional with my children.  More intentional with my marriage.  More intentional in my home.

Believe me, I'm not getting it perfect.  In fact, most days I fail miserably.  

But it's a journey and I'm determined to stay focused and finish well.  

I'm thankful for God's grace each and every day!

How about you?  What have you been intentional about lately?

First of all, Lora … you have been missed! I think this "stepping away" has become quite a trend lately as I find my favorite bloggers not blogging as often, and even find myself blogging much less! Someone said that they are busy living life instead of blogging about it, and I think that's what has happened with me. I still blog weekly about our homeschool adventures, post TOS reviews, and drop a personal post here and there, but otherwise I am just enjoying life. I am glad you are, too! Hope to see more of you around, though.

Hi, Nicole!

So good to hear from you! I've missed my "bloggy" friends! :)

I agree, I've been seeing this trend as well. Maybe a little bit of burnout has hit at the same time. I do plan to be around here more though, but in moderation.

I do want to live my life and not just blog about it! ;)
