It's been a while since I've sat down to write a blog post that contained of any sustenance. And if I'm being honest, it's been a long while. 

The truth is not really that much has been happening that doesn't happen to other people. The normal and mundane life. I mean I can write everyday that we did homework and had either football or basketball practice. I can write what I or Hubs cooked for dinner. But unless I had a cooking, which I do not, no one wants to read that.

I took an unintentional break to be present in my family's life. As much as I want to chronicle the lives of my family, I decided being present mattered more. I wanted to be there and involved. I wanted to live in moment with them. I wanted to be there with my camera in hand to capture the moment they would one day look back on and remember that millisecond of time.  

I've also learned how to say no to things I felt took to much time away from my family. I've learned how to not feel bad about it either. My family is my first priority and they are the ones who I want to spend my time with,even if we are sitting around watching Harry Potter for the 985412637 time. My time with them is something I'm just not willing to comprise on. 

So I hope you enjoy Thanksgiving with your family. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. And maybe I'll drop in here and there but for now, I've given myself permission to be with the ones I love the most, my family.
