Where’s Waldo? Where’s Alyx?!?!

Portrait of Self

Where have I been? Good question.

I’ve been laying on a beach in the middle of the Caribbean,  climbing mountains over in Europe, oh yeah and I took a quick shuttle ride to the moon! Ok that may be too unbelievable of a story to satisfy you. How about this: moved into a new house, again; rodeo two weekends in a row for a total of four non-stop days; another wedding; another trip to the beach; baseball games; happy hours; and lots of miles traveled. No not near as exciting as the first story I told but 100% the truth. It’s been a great ride. Not to mention, my lunch hours have no longer been filled with writing blog posts, but rather getting some real work done. You know, the kind I get paid a salary for!

It really has weighed heavy on me how long it has been since my last post. It has bothered me, but I just couldn’t seem to get fully motivated to pen something on paper or get a draft started on the computer. And I really don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I was too busy being insanely happy with every aspect of my life. My work has been going well; my new house is awesome, not to mention my new roommate, my sister, is pretty legit; my personal life couldn’t have been better; and I am back living in the beautiful country where I wake up to cows outside of my bedroom window and the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets are a regular occurrence.

At some point, you’d just rather sit with your parents or grandparents and drink a beer instead of firing up the computer to do some posting. Funny how now I realize the last year of my life, living in town, with all the activities I could ever want at my fingertips, I spent most of my evenings at home with Ellie watching Murder, She Wrote on Netflix, drinking a glass of wine, editing pictures and/ or posting on my site.

But my lack of involvement on my site has taken its toll. I haven’t been near as motivated to take pictures. If I’m not going to take the time to share them with y’all, then what really is the point? My writing and vocabulary skills have become a little rusty. I should specify, my word choice has been less than optimal. I’ve caught myself using legal or professional jargon in some of my most personal text messages… ahh!!! That’s no fun. Most importantly, I feel like I was losing one of my most favorite hobbies.

So with all that in mind, I am not going to try, I will get back into the rhythm of things and keep this site worthwhile. So I’m giving you the opportunity to hold me accountable. Feel free to comment here on my posts, or email me. Give me a hard time, type in ALL CAPS, use bolded print, do whatever you feel necessary to make sure I know you like reading my content and will be disappointed if I don’t keep it up.

Earlier today I posted my Fave Photo Friday. Tomorrow, a chocolate cake recipe will be posted and then hopefully on or before Sunday, I can have my post Big City Turn Me Loose, and Set Me Free up including lots of pictures of lovely livestock :)

Thanks to anyone who finds themselves reading my randomness here on sheerheart.org. It really does mean a lot to me that I have so many friends in the real and virtual worlds.
