A moment of honesty

I have a confession.  I have been in quite a funk lately.  For those of you who have read the blog for awhile know, my mother in law passed away unexpectedly in September.  Although I'm 29, this was the first time in my life that someone close to me had passed away.  Add to that the fact we moved to a new area where I  hardly know anyone and the fact that it is winter and well, there you go.

I have mainly kept it to myself because I haven't wanted to be Debbie Downer.  I'm one of those people.  You know, those people who keep things bottled up and explode all over everything.  Yup, that's me.  I'm not proud of it.  I wish I could express my innermost feelings better, but it's just something I must work on.

On another note, I've been blog hopping lately.  This something new to me that I have not really participated in before.  It is a lot of fun and I've found some really cool blogs and bloggers.  I have been noticing things going on with blogs now.  It's not just about writing about your family, life and what not anymore.  Everyone is PR friendly, doing reviews and giveways, and everyone is kind of branding themselves.  Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with it.  I just hadn't realized just how many bloggers were taking that direction.  It's really a changing blog world out there.  However, I really don't think it is for me.  Maybe I just don't feel up to it.  I don't know. 

For me, I just like doing posts about our life.  To me, that is what I started this blog for and that is still my goal.  Please don't take offense, every blog is different and that is what is so great about the blogging world!  So, with that said, I love new visitors and meeting everyone and I enjoy that people want to follow our blog.  Hopefully, I write posts that are encouraging and fun. 

Back to my original point.  If you pray, please say a prayer for me.  I need prayers right now and encouragement.  I'm hopping spring will put some more sunshine in my soul and help get me out of this funk! 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!  I appreciate all of you guys and your comments!  Blessings!
