There are a million reasons I've been scarce around here lately, but we won't go into them. I reminded myself today that the purpose of this blog is to one day be able to share our photographs and stories with Lily. I have decided that although my blog doesn't come with a ton of bells and whistles like the bigger blogs do (giveaways, how-to's, sponsors, etcetera), this is our space to share the life we are making for our baby girl and I don't want to not update it because I'm overwhelmed by the idea of an editorial calendar for our blog.
Sure, overtime, I'd like to grow the blog into something a little different, when I can invest more time into it, but for now, I'm going to do my very best to honor what I had originally set out to do: celebrate Lily and remember the little things. She turned nine months old on Friday and I really can't let any more time go by without documenting it.
With that said, here's a little overview of the past month (plus) around here (thank you, Instagram!).
