Getting Back to Home

by Rachael on March 1, 2013 · 36 comments


This place, which was essentially my second home for so long, has been quiet for the better part of a year now.

And if I’m being honest, it wasn’t very loud in the months leading up to that. A pitiful smattering of (unintentional) teasers, vague-isms, and a few brave moments I probably shouldn’t have published (but am ultimately glad I did, and not just for the e-hugs I so desperately needed at the time).

I’m surprised at how that stretch of silence has ticked on and on, honestly. I suppose the past year was just such a roller coaster, it was all I could do to live it, never mind find the energy to share it. I’m not sure yet if I’ll regret how much time I missed getting down on paper; how many memories will disappear because I couldn’t find the wherewithal to save them here.

But it is what it is, right? And I can either continue to sit on my ass and ponder that, or I can shut up and start to hit publish again.

Fortunately, I was handed a fun shiny new project out of the sky today – something that will require posting somewhat regularly for the next couple weeks. It’s one that I’m actually excited about, so I think it’s the perfect excuse to get back into the habit of sharing, (Or over-sharing, as we all know is much more likely with me.)

So that’s it, for now. I’ll try to play catch up over the next couple weeks, and get back to a place of normalcy here, so that it’s no longer this big, fat, bully of a blank page that stretches on for eons and can’t possibly be filled. Instead, it will just be my little old life, day by day-ish, again – a place I once again love to call home.
