Well well well. Here I am again.
Starting a blog.
Almost 10 years ago, I started my first blog- Yeh Family Happenings. It was a little place to keep family and friends updated on our life as Justin and I started our family. I kept it updated off and on for a couple years but then I decided to start my second blog- playing with words 365- and the poor Yeh Family Happenings (which later was moved/renamed to The Yeh Life) sat alone, abandoned. I just never found the time to keep it updated once I had 2 kids and was becoming a professional blogger with pww365.
Fast forward a few years…another kid added to the mix and the demands of motherhood left me little time on the side. It was either I blogged or I spent time with my family so…I chose family and have spent the last couple years concentrating on..well… surviving.
(That’s us surviving parenthood with three. Just keeping it real people)
However life has, as it often does, thrown us even more curve balls. We had a 4th child, which wasn’t in the plans but HOLY CRAP I cannot imagine life without her. I mean, just look at her..
…and now I have found myself homeschooling (um, WHAT!?), pursuing my love of photography more seriously, and spending a lot of time working on myself to be a better mom & wife.
Also- the last year has really pushed me to think about what is truly important to me- to US as a family- and made me realize that I had been simply SURVIVING life and not LIVING life. Rather than surviving it- I am now EMBRACING it. Embracing the good and the bad. The chaos, the mess, the joy, and the pain. The beauty.
And so, in Katie fashion- I decided I had to start blogging about all of it. About my journey- past, present, and future- of learning to embrace ALL OF IT and not just surviving it.
So….grab a cup of your favorite good stuff (coffee? tea? wine? beer? ice cream? I love it all as long as it’s gluten free) and join me here in my new little corner of the inter webs.
