I have taken a brief hiatus from the blog. Honestly, I've been re-evaluating my purpose in starting this. Originally, it was to leave stories--both serious and funny--for my kids to have when they get older. Then it turned into a place where I felt like I needed something great and inspirational to say. Then I started to feel a pressure to find blog posts from everything I did and once I feel obligated...that's it--I'm done.
Life in the Royal house is good--not easy, but still good. We have our ups and downs--many of which are private and I don't want to share with the world. The blog in itself, was a big step for me--and I'm not saying I'm done, but I am being cautious with what I share. I tend to have loose lips and while my intention is usually not to spread gossip, I really want to have others know that anything shared with me is safe. I have been working hard to be trustworthy over the past few month--not that I ever shared things people told me not to, but I just talk to much.
So, in the same vein, I want to make sure that what I say on here honors my family and does not embarrass or tear down. So, if you follow this blog, bear wth me as I try to get my bearings again and figure out how this plays out for me.
