I Forgot How to Blog

by Kelli H. on September 7, 2018

Hi, I’m Kelli and I forgot how to blog. For real though, I didn’t even remember my password. I don’t remember how to resize pictures at all and when I logged on I had 18 comments that needed approving. Many of which people complained about my Coconut Buckwheat Pancakes being too runny. Whoops! Guess I didn’t miss that part of blogging. It’s only been a little over 2 years since my last post so I’m sure everyone is still reading this blog, right? haha. Yah, right…

Recently my cousin, Kaleh, asked if I had thought about blogging again. I replied that I had not and didn’t think I ever would. I’m not sure why I’m even writing today because I hadn’t woken up with the idea of blogging but somewhere along working throughout the morning I decided I felt like I needed to write. Since not blogging two years ago I did start an online journal which I try to keep up with about once a month. It’s been harder to keep up with since my daughter, Camryn was born but I like to document her monthly changes and hope that some day she’ll read them. 

I don’t know if Kaleh sparked something in me but maybe I’ll start blogging again. I don’t think I’ll be blogging recipes like I used to because to be honest, I don’t feel like dedicating my precious time to sharing picture perfect recipes. In the last year + I’ve started following The Minimalist somewhat, reading their books, listening to their podcast episodes, watching their documentary and I’ve been so inspired by them. I’m not a minimalist by any means but I do try to rid my home as much “stuff” as possible. I also subscribe to their idea that “time” is one of the most important things we have. 

Writing does make me feel better and while I haven’t written in a couple years I feel like I’d like to flex that part of my brain again (Hello! Mom brain is real!). Maybe start sharing some photos of life. Maybe share a couple of my favorite rosés. I don’t really drink beer anymore. After struggling with fertility about two years ago I’d given up a lot of gluten (though I still eat plenty of it now) I just kind of gave up my love for beer, too. That might also be why blogging wasn’t attractive anymore. Going through something like that isn’t very inspiring. 

I’m sure in more posts I’ll talk about our fertility struggle. I’m sure I’ll talk a LOT about Camryn. Maybe I’ll share how we’re thinking about moving in the next year or two. I mostly want to document our life in some way because sometimes when I look back at this old blog of mine I smile fondly of memories past. 

I think that’s all I’m going to share today as I hear Camryn stirring and waking up from her morning nap.
