As you may have noticed, I've taken a bit of a break from blogging this summer.  Now that our family has changed, Corey and I are figuring out our routines and tricks for basically functioning as adults and getting Rudy fed, diapered, clothed and all the other good stuff new parents need to learn how to do.  Rudy is a really laid back baby (she sleeps through the night, doesn't cry at daycare... basically cue Wayne's World "We are not worthy" GIF and yet we still find that there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything we want.  I seriously don't know what people with multiple kids, single parents or even parents with more challenging babies do!  We are two on one and this is hard!

That's not to say I have nothing to write about.  Au contraire!  This summer has been filled with blog worthy moments and renos and I promise I've been taking notes and photos!

I think my hiatus (or blog-cation, as I call it!)  had more to do with my having a very busy spring at work and really wanting to stop and smell the flowers with Corey and Rudy this past summer.  I'm once again busy at work, and we're up to our elbows in home improvements, and Corey returns to work soon so I'm really glad I spent my first summer as a mom not taking photos and writing for my blog but just being in the moment with my amazing family!

Today is my 33rd birthday and it marks my return to blogging.  Last year at this time, Corey and I had recently returned from our honeymoon and the third trimester was kicking my butt!  This past year has been my best year yet at work, Corey and I have tackled even more projects around the house and (most importantly) it has brought us this big wump!

In 2014, we added a dog and a baby to our lives.  I don't expect any more additions for a few years.  I'm hoping this year, we can work on our parenting routine and tackle even more  projects around the house.  After all, we'll have help as soon as Rudy can safely wield a hammer! ;)

This year, more than ever before, I'm spending my birthday counting my blessings... and I can't stop smiling.
