Happy November! It’s the most WONDERFUL time of the year!! Ok, well almost. We are soaking up all the yellow leaves + comfort food for the next few weeks and I am looking forward to every bit of it.
I am craving a slow November. Ever since school started, I feel like it has just been a whirlwind. I guess that’s what kindergarten does to you. School drop off and pick up, and dance and gymnastics, and “don’t forget it’s pajama day on Wednesday!” and field trips and doctors visits and work and what in the world is even happening?!
I have gotten a few emails and messages lately about where we have been and why I haven’t been blogging as much lately. And the truth is, as much as I love this community and this space, my family needs my full attention and I cannot drop the ball. I’m not the most organized person so without my alarm going off on my phone forty times a day to remind me what exactly I need to be doing, I am a lost cause. I have had this conversation with so many of my mom friends lately, about keeping up with reading logs and class parties, how we are all hot messes ninety percent of the time and just trying not to forget what day we are supposed to be mystery reader. And for those of you mamas feeling the same way, you are not alone, I am cheering you all on as we try to juggle and do our best and navigate constantly uncharted waters as our kids grow up way too fast.
I’m not sure when the timing will be right for me to be posting consistently, and as the blogging & social media platforms change (with expectations & demands that I’m not sure I can ever meet) I am constantly evaluating what exactly I have the energy for. And currently every last ounce of mine goes to keeping three kids dressed, fed & happy every day. And squeezing in as much fun as humanly possible.
That was an unexpected ramble.
But it feels like the right time. Now for some Friendsgiving menu planning. What are you guys making this year?! Tell me all the pie & casserole recipes.
PS. Thank you guys, as always, for your readership & support. You’re the all time best. xo288
