I feel like we graduated from college

   Oh hi! Remember me? I used to blog here. Now I have three kids and am moving. I've been thinking about writing this post for awhile now but doesn't seem like there is ever time for this old hobby of mine. It seems like a lot of us are feeling this way. I've noticed a lot of bloggers having their second or third baby and slowing down on the blogging. Some people also say instagram is to blame. Whatever the reason, I MISS you guys!
   I feel like we graduated from college. I feel like a lot of us started blogging 5 or 6 years ago when we were engaged or newlyweds. Back when some of us worked in office jobs that allowed us the time to sit and read and type. We had the time to recap our wedding detail by detail or our weekend or vacation. Even after we had one baby and we had time to write about every milestone every adventure every question.
   I miss those days. I feel like we were in college and had all the time in the world to sit around chatting and staying up late sharing stories. I shared a lot about our miscarriage. Plenty of my friends and family don't even know we had one. We have all shared a lot. A lot of us have been through a lot together. We have prayed for each other. Some of us have met, are facebook friends. But we don't share like we used to.
   We've graduated. We've moved away. We are busy. We would rather instagram. But I miss you guys! I miss when we had that time to get to know each other. We still share the big things. But I haven't really shared any where that we are moving. When we bought our first house I told you all when we put an offer on it and when the offer was accepted. Now we are like a week from closing on our first house and moving to our dream house and I haven't shared any of the process with you guys.
   Unfortunately, there just isn't time any more. But I wanted to take a second while Chase was at swim lessons with my dad, Kyle was napping and I was rocking Austin to sleep to say I miss you all and the blogging. You are in my thoughts and some times at 2 or 3 in the morning when I am up nursing the babies I catch up on your lives on instagram. I'm glad we can at least stay in touch. Hopefully we will have time soon to blog again and visit and share like old times.
