Blogging has seriously been on the back burner in my life lately. I love blogging and the community I've found through it and the way that it allows me to capture life and record memories. I have missed it, but haven't managed to prioritize it. Another problem getting in the way has been my camera lens. It stopped focusing last summer and I just got around to having it fixed last week. For me, having good pictures pushes me to blog. When I don't have pictures, I still have all the same thoughts, but have trouble making the next step to writing them down. When I have pictures, I find writing easier. So, this is me hoping that by having our good camera working again, I may actually be back here more frequently. Also, the guilt over not documenting Mattias's early life as well as I did for Meredith is getting too heavy.
