Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time I was a blogger. I blogged every day like clockwork.  I discussed life, I did weekend updates, I even did my monthly bump updates while I was pregnant with my daughter. Blogging was my daily ritual, my little place to unwind and let go. This was before blogging became so commercialized and a job.  Before sponsored posts, click-bait, and basically professional bloggers.  I used to have this wonderful group of faithful followers who read every day, commented and even became some of my closest friends. And then life happened.

First, I got a job that did not want me to blog. So, I started a new one.  And sure, I tried to keep up, but it was never the same. Then I had a baby, and posts became fewer and far between.  Then I left my job a year ago. Yup, left private practice and tried to figure out what to do next.  I made a foray into family law for a week.  It just wasn't for me.  Then I found a wonderful firm that did insurance law and well, was awesome.  But, the job was not.  And then my mom's health took a small turn for the worse and I had to leave this wonderful place.  This time last year I was not in a good place.  I was lost, tired and looking for something else.  I thought about leaving the practice of law.

But, life must go on, right?  But life did not include blogging.  Somewhere between raising a daughter, finding a new job, and finding myself I lost the will to blog.

But now here I find myself missing it.  The daily outlet it allowed me.  And I miss the friendships.  I never truly felt more connected to women in my same walk of life as I did when blogging.  So, here I am again, in this space blogging.

For those of you who have followed for years, I hope you will return, and for those of you just finding this space, I hope you will hang in there as I find my voice again.
