Where I've been...

Where to start? I don't usually like to mix my personal life with my "professional," but alas I feel as though I must explain my absence from this blog. And really, who am I kidding? Everything about this blog is personal! How many times have you all seen my kitchen and wedding pics?

Long story short (operative word), it all comes down to having a little one. For about a year, my husband and I have been struggling with infertility - daily doctor's appointments, injections, and other sordid procedures. It's been an adventure, to say the least; and I've been hidden in this scarred and worried little world, unable to break out, unable to see the light.

I will save you the details of the ebbs and flows of this "journey," but suffice it to say I am learning and growing a lot. I've been very open about this, telling almost anyone who will listen, because I just don't think that people talk about it enough. We are extremely hopefully that good things will happen for us, but that is now out of our control.

So, I hope you will understand why my blog roll has been crowded with fertility blogs lately and why, though I've drafted a million and one posts, I haven't made anything live since Thanksgiving (pathetic, really.) At the end of the day, the bottom line is that blogging made me happy, and I'm trying - very hard - to get back on the horse. I hope you all will forgive an occasional rant, and that I can fill in the space with wonderful finds for the home, kitchen, baby, bride, you-name-it!

(My husband just saw that I was blogging and screamed "YAYYYYY!" Cute, right? Also, he said I should post a picture of my new computer ... another motivating factor to getting on here again!)

I'm so glad to see you back!

You're on a tough road, but I have seen so many people go through it and come out the other side very, very happy. Is that too cliche to even make you feel any better? I know that telling people things will get better doesn't make it any easier in the present.

Feel free to rant. Everyone is here to listen.

You're an angel, and I'm getting over my little pity party :) But it does friggin' blow! PS - those scones look amazing! I was drooling at work today when I snuck a peak!

Welcome back! I was going to say pretty much what Rachel said, so instead I will just offer up sympathy and support. We're all glad you're writing again :)
