There have been so many changes around here. Lots of firsts for this sweet baby of mine and a lot of learning as we go for Chris and me. Along with all this change obviously comes many questions, concerns, excitement and a whole lot of wondering. I’m not going to stop blogging any time soon, but with a baby in the mix I’m having a lot of mixed emotions about where to go from here. I read a post very similar to this a few months ago from Lynzy (you know her as the blogger from Sparkling Footsteps who guest posted on my blog after Isla was born). I was pregnant at the time and now I know exactly where she’s coming from. My intention is to throw more posts in the mix of us wandering around Philly with friends, on picnics, trying new places and introducing all that city life has to offer to our daughter. I hope to some day wear real clothes regularly again (and be able to leave the house now that the temps are rising) and therefore be able to put together some worthwhile outfit posts, perhaps a few shopping ones, too, and maybe even a few “hers and mine.” But what I struggle with is just how much exposure is really fair for Isla. It’s not like she can tell me she wants me to respect her privacy (and it’s hard when she’s so darn cute and I just want to show her off!). And there’s that realization that there are a lot of creepy people out there in the world. I’ve always known that, but now that I have a daughter, the fear of something happening to her is debilitating. It makes you want to never leave the house.
We haven’t really done anything blog-worthy since we’ve been cooped up all winter, but with the temps rising and a light at the end of winter’s polar vortex tunnel, I’m asking you what you want to see. Do you like my outfits? Photos of Isla being adorable (which happens every second of her life)? Shopping lists? Family outings? Pretty pictures of recipes I’ve tried from across the web? Sarcastic posts about the trials and tribulations of motherhood as I see them? I know you like giveaways so I’ll keep those coming as best I can! I don’t make money off of this blog (okay fine, $100/year, literally!), but I do get some free stuff sometimes and when that happens I try my best to get that stuff for you too, since, well, I get it because of all of you who come back here and visit us! So tell me in the comments what you want to read about.
And speaking of comments … my favorite part about blogging is all the comments I get from you guys. I have absolutely loved reading all the comments on Monday’s giveaway post about all of your little babies and lives. So rather than sit here and talk to myself all day long, I hope you’ll share, too. I promise I read every single one you leave here, on Instagram, Facebook , Pinterest, Twitter and via email and I do my best to respond as quickly as I can.
So with all that rambling, please tell me, what do YOU want to see?
