Better Late Than Never?

Oh hey, so remember when I had a blog where I wrote words? Yeah I don’t either but my husband assures me it was how he kept track of our family so I should post again. True story.

I’m not doing New Year’s Resolutions because it’s way past January 1st, nothing I’ve “resolved” to do is special and…well, I don’t want to. I never keep them, I’m totally bored with reading everyone’s “word of the year”, and you don’t really care if I want to have a garage sale this spring. Which means this is not a New Year’s Resolution post. But I do feel like I should admit this SOMEWHERE, if only so I don’t let it happen again, so here goes.

I’ve gained 13 pounds since December 15th – most of it in my arms and face, but somehow my jeans don’t button either. I’m not pregnant. I don’t have a thyroid problem. I just ate a ton of feelings – the Newtown tragedy, Caroline turning 2, the holidays, E’s stressful schedule, blah blah blah etc etc etc – and they all tasted like pie and spiked hot chocolate. Plus I did zero working out (or any sort of moving, really, my couch has a permanent butt imprint). The whole thing is entirely my own stupid fault so now I’m paying for it.

Lucky for you, I won’t be blogging about trying to lose weight (again) because it’s boring (again) and I’ve done it way too many times before and I don’t want to fail publicly (again). I just hope in a couple months I’ll be writing another (boring) post about how great I feel now that I’m 30 pounds lighter (boring AND annoying).

The second way you can tell this isn’t a New Year’s Resolution post is because I’m not going to vow to blog more. In fact, I’m probably going to blog less. Or at least post fewer tutorials and crafts and time consuming stuff and a lot more photos. I’ve discovered I really like taking photos and I don’t like worrying about blog traffic, so it was any easy call. I can’t promise I won’t bore you with photography talk, but I hope you’ll at least stick around for the ginger pictures.

Here is a photo of Caroline looking at an iguana. Happy 2013!

    I will still be here.

    Because I <3 Gingers. And you. Obviously.

    You’ll get no objections from me!

  4. Misty says:

    I feel you on the gaining weight thing. And I will continue reading for pics of the tiny gingers. ;)

  5. Joanna says:

    I’m not going anywhere. Your blog is one of my favorites in the universe.

    If it makes you feel any better, I gained 22. Fortunately I think a ton of it was water weight as I’ve shed half being quasi-Paleo (I needed that Diet Coke damn it!) for three days. I feel ya sister!

    On your second point, YAY! I love, love, love pictures of your gingers AND your photography stuff. My boyfriend has completely commandeered the camera he bought me as a gift so I’ve basically decided to let him hog it now so I can hog it when we have kids (at which point he’ll have finally purchased the D600 he won’t shut up about and I can have my camera back!)

    You make me laugh. And yes, I’m trying not to care about blog traffic. It’s hard but here’s what I keep telling myself . . .

    When I’m ninety years old on my death bed, will it really matter how many people saw my post? Nope. It won’t.

    Your pictures are lovely. I, for one, and all for more of them. :)

  9. Sarah says:

    I’ll totally be lurking around for pictures of those sweet gingers.

    I read your blog because I love your pictures, think we would be really good friends in real life and find your posts an “easy” read for me! Seriously, it is one of my go to blogs. Don’t change what you are doing…blog when you want! I am so tired of reading the ones with sponsored crap etc…
    I think the photography stuff would be interesting- maybe your settings once in a while or your edits? or workflow?
