Yay, yippeeeee, I’m back!
Cue the confetti cannons and all the silliness possible for this little blog intro!
Whew, why is the first post after a blogging break so difficult to write? ;)
Anyway, I’m excited to be making my way back into the blogging world after a few months’ break this summer.
I took the summer off, so I could focus on living the stories fully before telling them. I needed to make space for growth, space to really see all the shapes and colors of this season of my life.
I needed to appreciate where I was before I could get excited about where I’m heading next.
This summer has been SO FULL — packed to the brim with adventuring, sunscreen-smeared books, and summer celebrations of all sorts. It’s been full of abiding, and it’s been full of discovering.
I think it’s just what I needed.
God’s been doing some necessary work on my heart, too, growing me in new, important ways, stretching and redefining my trust in Him. I’m grateful for that.
It smells and feels like fall today, and maybe, because of that, it’s the perfect day for me to be writing this post, acknowledging that although summer is coming to a close, there are new days and new adventures ahead.
In the meantime, I’m excited to soak up every last bit of summer — and to start telling some stories.
