Where to even begin?

I honestly can’t even believe this blog is still here. Like how has the internet kept all these posts and pictures since 2009?! It’s crazy and amazing! Looking back at this blog I remembered WHY I blogged in the first place — the memories! And the outlet it was for me! And the incredible community we built.

I was doing so well with this blog when my littles were… little and it was called Mama Notes. Oh how I loved it here. I didn’t realize at the time how magical my little spot on the internet was. Along with the community, I had sponsors and was partnering with other business’s. It was so much fun! I took a break because I felt like it was the right thing to do at the time…

… now I feel like the right thing is to start blogging again!

Gosh things seem so different — yet exactly the same — then they were 4 years ago. My kids are now (almost. almost. like still four basically) 6 and 7.5 years old. I’m still living in Anchorage and I still eat too much chocolate and am obsessed with books and being outside.

Although I took a break from publishing my writing publicly, that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped writing.  I figure instead of putting “blog” posts on Facebook and writing in my online diary, it’s time I share it here again.

So, thanks for being here! I am glad you’re here and hey – if you’re bored, feel free to read back on some of my super old blog posts and see if you can find your comment in the comments section! 🙂
