It's fair to say that I've been a bit absent from the blog world as of late. It used to be no problem to come to this little white space five days a week and type out whatever ramblings were going through my head, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. I'm sure what happened. I suppose I can blame it on the change in weather or my busy days at work. Regardless of the reasoning behind my unintentional blogging hiatus, the facts remain the same and I really miss blogging!
It's amazing how two years ago I had never even read a blog, but now blogging consumes so much of what I do. I started, slowly at first, reading a few blogs on a daily basis. Then one day I got a wild hair and decided that I didn't want to read from the outside anymore. And thus, Believe In The Sparks was born! It was by pure coincidence that I started my blog exactly one year to the day that I got married, but a happy coincidence, none the less. In the past year I have written my fair share of posts surrounding wedding planning and marriage. How could I not? Wedding planning consumed my life for a year and a half!
But it wasn't just wedding planning that I wrote about in that first year and a half of blogging. I've come here day after day telling my story. The story of my life and the story of joining my life with someone else. The story of purchasing our first house, taking family vacations, learning my way through the kitchen, and settling into this new life together as one.
This blog holds a year and a half worth of memories for me. I love that. I love that I can scroll over to my archives, click on a post, and see what was going on in my life at that time, reliving each and every memory through my stories.
Blogging hasn't only given me a place to write down my stories, but it's also connected me to people I never would have known otherwise. I've met some amazing ladies through this little blog of mine, and for that I am forever grateful.
And here we are, one year and seven months since the birth of my baby blog. She's grown a lot since the beginning, and with the time and proper nourishment, I know that she will continue to grow. So I may have been a bit distant from the blog as of late, but don't take that as a sign that this blog is beginning to see the end.
If anything, I'm just getting started.
