As 2016 comes to a close, I have had a lot on my mind and on my plate. I haven't had a good outlet for all that's swirling in my head. I have wanted to come revive my blog for a while, but after reading a lot of great, successful blogs, I didn't feel I had an angle. A shtick. Something that made me different or compelling.
I still don't. But I spend a lot of time in my car, thinking, and most of the time, I want to put those thoughts into words. The words don't always come smoothly, but I think I am going to try. When I was a kid, I always wanted to be an author. I think that ship has sailed, but I occasionally think of something that makes me feel like I have a few original thoughts.
I also really enjoy looking back at my old blog posts, where I just documented life. I posted about things that had happened over the weekend or what I was eating for dinner, and it was fun. I doubt anyone still reads this, and I don't think I will really be advertising it, but that might make it even easier to write.
So that being said-----I would like to make an announcement. For the first time ever to be posted on the internet----- Collin and I got divorced. I haven't posted that anywhere yet. I am such a facebooker, but it just didn't feel right to post about it. It's not something I want to talk about. But rest assured- I will be ok. I'm not going into the details, but who knows----maybe I'll write about it someday :)
Also, for the first time being posted on the internet, Cooper and I are moving back to Maryland in 3 weeks. I have an endless list of things to do, and things like this are a really bitter reminder that I don't have a partner to "do life" with anymore. We will make it, though. I am nervous, I am excited, I am cautiously optimistic. For a person who doesn't like change or going out on a limb, I seem to do it a lot.
talk to you soon!
