I'm Still Alive!

I feel like I should give myself a great big hug and say, "Welcome Back, Sista!"

Not so fast, though. I'm certainly not going to make any promises that I can't keep.

Truth is, it's been a hot minute since I've been here in my little space on the internet. WHEN I thought about blogging, I sometimes felt guilty for not and other times, I had a peace about it. Peace that I was living life and enjoying my time with family and friends and not feeling like I had to write about every. single. thing. And guilty because I didn't. How could I go from blogging for nearly sixteen years and not even mention Baby Girl's Sweet Sixteen birthday?

It's coming. Later. 

We've had a wonderful summer, but the truth is, I kinda lost my mojo for writing. And when I DID feel like writing, I had nothing to say and didn't have the heart for a recap post. I filled that time with awful books - except the Bible, of course! - podcasts, Life 360, and pool time. I have thoroughly enjoyed my summer. 

It's hot now - very! - and I'm over summer. Bring on fall and sweaters and boots! Soups and Christmas! Pumpkins and candles! 

I'll be back soon. 


Hi there, I'm Laura, I'm the happiest wife, the loudest cheer mom, and the craziest girlfriend you'all ever have, I'm a Southern Belle living in a Southern world!


  1. So good to hear from you. I'm sure not blogging as I once did but I'm happy with the amount I am blogging. It had become a chore and that's not fun. Glad you have had such a great summer. Blessings!

  2. I've been missing your posts but glad to still have followed you on IG

  3. I can relate 100% to everything you just said in this post. I stopped blogging, it looks like right at the same time as you, and I want to come back but don’t. I’m glad you checked in. I will soon I’m sure.

  4. You have been living your life and loving your people - that's the best reason to not be blogging!

  5. Welcome back! It is nice to hear that you have been enjoying your life with your loved ones! Blogging will always be here, but living in the moment is the most important thing!
