Hello. It's Me.

Well, stop the world. 

I am writing a blog post. 

Two years to the date of my last blog post, which I wrote less than a month after Faith came home from the hospital in 2014.  2014 was TWO years ago.  Oh. My. Word.  So much has changed! I use emojis and hashtags in everyday dialogue, had a baby, and drive a minivan!  #allthehearteyes

And, how pretty are things?! Things being the little facelift sweet Becca gave Babbling Abby, of course.  She's a doll and I highly recommend her.

At one point, I said I was going to close this space and print it into a book for posterity's sake, closing this chapter of my blog life.  I didn't do either.  And, I'm glad.  (Though I really would like to print and bind it all someday. Have you done that?)  I have continued to write about life and school-related fare over at The Inspired Apple, so I haven't been completely gone.  It just became a little overwhelming to maintain two blogs.  

But, here I am with good intentions to set the bar very, very low for the upkeep of online journaling.  Low expectations are everything these days.  Helps me cope with the massive amount of crumbs throughout the kitchen (but the dishes are clean!), piles of laundry (again, clean!), and normal days (turns out I love normal!).  
Here's to more random babbling!  Happy Saturday, friends!

Hello Abby and Family! I retired from first grade teaching 2 years ago and I thought I had lost your posts. I was just thinking about your family this evening! :) I had no idea you had left for 2 years. I am so happy I found your blog, again. I am so happy for all your blessings!

Sincerely, Carol Sunday

Welcome back! I so love your blog about your lovely family and life's every day ups and downs. Yours was the first blog I read about 5 years ago as well as The Inspired Apple. You have been such a constant source of inspiration, joy and encouragement in both my personal life and walk with God and in my teaching life. Thank you from my side of the world, Australia, to yours, God bless you! Jx
