I think it is time to return to this space. I had a really, really good break. It was a good thing. And it's good to remember what you love about something you've been doing for (exactly) five years.
I don't think I'll spend a lot time with what we did. I'll just jump back in with what we're doing.
While I was away from here, I kept a private space online, all my own. No one knew about it. I shared it with no one. But it was an experiment. I wanted to know what it would be like if I had a space for only me.
And I learned that I like marking time. I like writing things down. Remembering. I like to-do lists, and favorite quotes, remembering how I canned the tomatoes, and how much drama went in to losing that big front tooth. Sometimes, I like to post without pictures. Sometimes I like just a few words.
It was refreshing. And I hope to bring a lot of that back here.
So hi! Hello! This is me waving over the fence. Letting you know I'm back from vacation. And I'm feeling good.

So glad you are back!
And it’s so good to have you back–you’ve been missed. But kudos to you for knowing you needed the break and taking it!
Missed you and glad I cought you on BC. I took my connection down to 3-4 times a week (sometimes less) and it was great and refreshing. So glad you had sometime for youself.
Just wanted to say welcome back! (I started following your blog a few months ago when I was just a couple of months preg with my first child-I’m due any day now!) Hearing that you are doing great and refreshed after a couple of months off is encouraging that I will still be able to blog after having the baby. Happy for you (=
I did the same thing! And I am hoping to bring some of that energy back to my public blog. Good to see you, Molly. xo
(this is me, handing you a peach cobbler over the fence.)
Hi Molly – I tried the whole break thing, decided I really missed it and came back early. But it’s lovely that the slow summer blogging season is over and good to see you.
Welcome back friend. This is me handing you a jar of freshly canned tomatoes and basil.
this is me. smiling.
Welcome back, I missed you!
Welcome back! It’s good to see you this morning.
Welcome back! I missed your posts.
Welcome back. Just wondering how you did that private journal off line. Do you use a blog host and keep it from being viewed? Just wondering and thinking I would post more but unsure that I want it on the web for the world to see. I’m glad you will be in this space, it’s friendly here:)
i’ve missed you! xo.
