Under Construction.

You may have noticed, but it's been a little quiet around these parts as of late. Turns out, just a small town girl, and the small town girl behind it, are both going through a transformation. We'll be up and running in no time, I'm sure, with a new look (both the blog and the girl are getting makeovers) and possibly even a new name. Stay tuned on that one... It's been hard to find my footing where my blog is concerned in the last year. New mamahood, coupled with a few life knockdowns, have made me reconsider the direction of both my writing and my life. So, when we're back - and it will be soon - it will be with a fresh perspective, a new attitude and a whole lot of inspiration for upcoming posts (trust me on that one). 

I think I got lost in the Dear Violet letters, the 2012 recap and baby's first holiday posts. I felt as behind here as I did in the other areas of my life. And, as any good blogger knows, this should be fun. It lost its fun for a minute there, as a lot of things did, I'm afraid. But I feel a change coming on, personally and here in my little backyard of the blogosphere. And fun is a big part of my comeback. So, although I'll keep writing my own Dear Violet letters and tucking them away for the book I'm making my daughter, I'm not going to worry about catching up on posts any longer. In fact, I'm not going to worry about a lot of the things that have been taking up my time, my energy and my heart the last few months. (How's that for a new attitude?)

If I've learned anything in the last few weeks, it's that there's no going back. From now on, we're only looking toward the future and it sure looks sparkling from here.

So, if you've checked in here recently and heard the crickets, thank you. This blog is part of my heart, as is this community. But for now, the blog and the girl are under construction...
