Hey there, it's Jess.
Apologies for how MIA I've been. What was once a passion for me to write my thoughts down in pictures and words suddenly died in a flicker once my second came along in February. I don't want to say it's because I didn't care about it anymore because I did. I thought about this blog all the time but I couldn't get myself to spend time writing in it until today. I needed to soak in everything that was happening like a sponge and save every bit of energy I could gain towards my family, especially my babies. The month or two before I had Isla was focused on loving Riv and making sure she knew it. The two months after Isla was dedicated towards adjusting as a family. Loving Isla. Loving Riv. Loving Ray. Loving the pups. Making sure they were all OK.
Motherhood is hard. I've said it before and I'll keep saying it. It's heartbreaking. It's tiring. It's sweet. It's joyous. It makes me crazy. It makes me laugh. It's scary but above it all, who would've known that love could be so big?
Anyhow, here I am. Slowly but surely getting back into action. I'm sure I'll have more stories to share with you so I hope you can stick around.
