We have just arrived home from the funnest family vacation we’ve ever had. I have so much to share with you and I am getting OVERWHELMED. I thought I would be writing so much more in this stage of my life, but I just haven’t found the time or the words. I have wanted to be fully present during this wonderful newborn stage and for me, this time, that has looked like a lot of time away from the computer. I’m getting there, though. I have been shown so much love in this chapter of my life. I am so grateful. I had started to think no one read this little old blog anymore and I’m realizing there are a lot more people waiting to hear about our story as it continues on than I realized. This community is so special to me. I know it has given more to me than I can possibly offer to any of you who read along. Some of your comments (and emails!) have changed me to my very core. I am so happy to have made connections through this special place of mine.
ANYWAY, I know you are waiting to hear about Grae’s birth story and it is pretty much written but long long long and I am trying to figure out the best way to post it (a week’s worth of posts? a super long post to just get it over with? a new weekly series??). I also want to tell you so much about our new house and how excited we are to be here but that is turning out to be a super personal story and I’m feeling a little self-conscious about posting that. I’ll be praying for clarity and courage in these next few weeks and hope that this place of mine becomes a daily ritual again. I love it here and it helps me so much to write and process and share and live through here.
I am going to pick up from where we are now, and go back and forth a bit until I get caught up over the next little while.
So, I’ll be around. I promise. And keep the emails and comments coming! They’re so encouraging to me and I love hearing from you.
Oh, I also seem to have found my groove with instagram again, so if I’m not here, still check there! @cassmiller
And speaking of instagram, here is a super easy EASY way to get a cute new (and customized) background for your phone…
