updates + stuff

Hi! Yes, we are still here. One computer crash, a family virus/head-cold/stomach bug-thing, and a few weeks later and we're not only surviving but thriving over here!
We're back on your radar and better than ever, BUT not without some major changes. I've had some time to think + pray + ponder the future of this space I love so much, and here's what I've come up with for now:
  • 1. No more asking for "votes". If you think we're great and want to show some love that's AWESOME, the opportunity will still be available to vote for our Blog on Top Baby Blogs + Top Mommy Blogs via links that are floating around. However, I will not solicit votes from you from now on. I promise. (Feel free to call me out on that one, please!) It's just not important in the grand scheme of things and I can see that now. The glare of a newbie blogger trying to find her way can be blinding at times, and no hate to Blogs that survive in that way, either - I support those that do AND those that don't. It's just not for me anymore.
  • 2. Switching focus from "life with twins" (which is awesome, but not the be-all-end-all of life) to just plain old being real about how we're evolving into a family of strength + integrity through our faith in God, as well as a desire to live simply and intentionally. It's been a pretty awesome process so far.
  • 3. Less Blogging, period. I set some pretty unrealistic goals for myself with three toddlers + a baby on the way. I was trying to Blog every. day. and that just wasn't working. From now on my plan is to Blog only when I have something significant to share, rather than trying to fabricate material for the sole purpose of creating a post. That will, I hope, allow me to be more authentic and sincere in my content. 
That all being said I do have prior commitments and arrangements that I do need to hold true to. For the next couple months I will be in transition from the old way I blogged, to the new goals described above. Please bare with me as the dust settles and we can together see what will take shape. 

For all the latest please subscribe to our Blog via the "Follow by Email" box on the right-hand side over there ---> 
you know - like bump updates + stuff...  you noticed it above, right? 12 weeks strong!

Also, if there is something you'd like to see covered/discussed/cooked or created in this space, please feel free to leave a comment in the spaces below, or drop me an email: handsandheartsmorethanfull@yahoo [dot] com
... and thanks for hanging in there, friends!

  1. Welcome back! I've missed you. We were hit with an awful virus over here, too. So glad you're back to thriving and I'm excited to see all of the changes up & coming around here. <3
