Stupid Mistake + Where Have I Been???

Have you ever made a stupid mistake?

Or is that even the word I’m looking for?!?

Not like picking your kids up late from their practice or putting on the wrong shoes or putting salt in your coffee instead of sugar.

Maybe the word I am thinking is irresponsible, foolish, “mom” brainless, the other kazillion of words that could be the right word.

I almost lost my blog a while back and it was my OWN fault. I know I haven’t even been writing on here in a LONG time but these are still memories I have, things I still want to keep and for a moment they vanished, never to be found again… recipes, heartfelt topics, birth stories, and so much more.

But just like Christ can redeem us in our mess, I was able to get this blog back up and running…. THANK YOU JESUS, for real!!

(the real reason my blog was down, again a STUPID mistake, was that I let my hosting expire and the card I had attached to my account had been lost a year ago, plus the hosting had an old email)

Then on top of that, this blog had been hacked and the bot as they’re called kept of publishing posts that didn’t make any sense, you may have noticed if you saw any come through in email. But thankfully, I *believe* I have that all sorted out now! 

So where have I been?

I know I kinda left the 1500+ of you who have subscribed to this blog hanging back in August. We started homeschooling and I knew I would need to be focused on doing that. Which has been going well, but definitely has its struggles.

For me, blogging took up a lot of my time, however, I missed the community feel after a while, interacting in comments and getting to know y’all, my readers. I then decided to start a YouTube channel to be able to be a part of the online community once again… You may be thinking how did I have time to make videos but not blog? And the answer is this, making videos is much more simpler for me… I can record one real quick while my littles are napping and my bigs are doing independent work or having free time. And editing it real simple on iMovie!!

I have been having a lot of fun getting to know the subscribers over there and would LOVE for you to stop on over and even subscribe if you’d like to keep up with me! I hope to post once a month, if not more on this blog but to keep up with me weekly, make sure you check over there because I post 1-2 or more videos a week, depending on my time I’m available to make videos. 

Today I just posted a new video featuring my favorite things… you can check to out by clicking here. And below I share a couple recent videos. 

I look forward to reconnecting with y’all and hope you are enjoying the beautiful Spring that is approaching! 

Shameless plug… be sure to check over on Youtube on Friday for a “What’s in my kid’s Easter baskets” video!
