Sorry for the delay everyone! I know I’ve been MIA for a few months. We’ve had a lot of changes going on in the Gill household so I had to take a little break. But I am back now and boy, do I have some news to share!
So I’ve been gone for a few reasons. First, I ended one job in October and went through a short period of unemployment before starting my new job in December. That caused a lot of fluctuation in our household. I do not do well with being bored and unproductive! Additionally, we had the holidays going on which included a lot of traveling and family visiting. It was a hectic couple months! BUT, the biggest reason I have been down for the count was because I have been going through a rough transition and not feeling very well for the past couple months, because we found out we are expecting!
That’s right! There’s about to be another fish in this pond! My husband and I are excited to announce that we will be having a bouncing baby boy due July 26th, 2017! I guess our gender prediction test was wrong! We could not be more excited! We were trying for about six months prior to receiving the wonderful news and we can’t wait to meet Baby Gill.
Now I want to address what this will mean for my blog. I know I haven’t been at this blog thing for very long, but it is something I have always wanted to do and that has not changed. That being said, I do not want this to become a “mommy blog” so to speak. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the mom blogs out there – in fact, I religiously read quite a few, especially now! However, my intention when I began this blog was for it to be a diary of sorts, a place to document the ins and outs of my life. Therefore, there will be plenty of baby posts, mom posts, etc. However, I want to make sure I’m still being me and including the other aspects of my life that I find important. So that is what I am aiming to do going forward!
I am always open to change and this is a mighty big one! If anyone has any advice – I’d love to hear it! As a first time mom, I am quite nervous so I appreciate any help I can get. Additionally, I have A LOT of ideas for this blog over the upcoming year, but if anyone has anything specific they’d like to see, please let me know! If you’d like to follow our progress more closely, check out my YouTube channel!
Thank you to everyone who stuck around with me! I can’t wait to share this next chapter of my life with all of you!
