did you miss me?

3 months is such a long time. It feels weird to attempt to come back from such a long "blog vacation", but I guess that's what I'm going to do.

It might be awkward, guys.
Love me through it.

I want to blog about things outside of my kids, which I haven't done since...before I had kids. I want to talk about everything, not just one thing. I'm a mom, but that's not all there is to me, you know? I enjoy painting, fashion, baking + cooking, and have recently started working on my health + fitness. But since having kids, I have put basically all of my interests on the back burner. I just don't make time for those things. It's not the kids' fault, but mine. I guess I hope that blogging more, and about more than motherhood, will help me to pursue these interests? I just know that I don't want to let myself go. I don't want my kids to grow up not knowing who I am outside of their mom.
I want to have passions that I share with them, things that we may eventually enjoy together. (Okay, I'm starting to sound all mom-ish again already. It's just going to happen sometimes, let's be real.)

Hopefully you guys know what I mean, though.

Basically, I just want to get back to the title of this blog. "LYDS Was Here."


  1. Sometimes it is hard to separate ourselves from what is the most important "thing" in our lives and that is our kids. It is so easy to get lost in them and when we come up for air we have to find ourselves again. It is important to us and it is very important to them that we become more than mommy.

    Welcome back. ;)
