Whoa! I feel like that girl that keeps breaking up with her boyfriend only to get back together with him a week or two later.

Remember when Ben Affleck dumped Salma Hayek for JLo? And then JLo and Ben gifted each other Bentley’s to show their love? And then Salma went on Oprah and was like, “you don’t show love with a Bentley, love is special and it needs to live in your heart, something just for you and your partner.”

As one of my new year’s resolutions, I wanted to try to share less. Less of myself, less of my family and less of my experiences. My reason was simple, I felt like every moment that I shared took something away from the specialness of the memory.

Mommy bloggers get a ton of digital flack. I don’t think there’s another content genre that is as open to scrutiny (and downright meanness sometimes) like parenting bloggers. Guys, all bloggers put a little bit of themselves into every post they publish. Sharing your ideas, thoughts, opinions, beliefs or whatever on the internet is incredibly personal. Towards the end of last year, I just couldn’t figure out what the hell I was doing. Why even blog? Why even make the effort to contribute? Who the hell cares?

But, the longer I left it, the more I missed it. Writing is a huge part of who I am. It’s what I do for a living and on this blog, it’s where I find my bliss. So yes I am back, but for me.

Because I really do love this.
