the prodigal blogger returns


Hello Sweet Friends!

In case you've forgotten, my name is Trista and I've evidently been on sabbatical for the last eighteen months.

When I logged in, I was honestly kind of shocked to find my blog still intact. I had forgotten how much I loved the design and the layout. How I had worked tirelessly on getting it just right. Funny how you can work so hard and so long on something and then just walk away from it, huh?

In the most simplest of terms, life happened. You can only bare so many burdens and responsibilities and stay afloat for so long without taking stock of what's important to you and consistently balancing and re-balancing. The failure to do so leads to unplanned disappearances from the blogosphere for extended periods of time. This isn't my first offense, and yet I'm still unsure as to whether or not I have learned my lesson.

If I'm honest, I'm a little uncertain about being here. The only creative bone in my body is writing and I've missed using it. I suppose you might say I'm testing the waters. For one, are you even still out there?! And two, can I balance the time I put into this little space with everything else vying for my time and attention?

I want to. I really do. I have so much to share with you. I mean, I could blog for days - I have 548 days worth of life that I haven't shared. Not to mention, I'm sitting here thinking of so many of you and wondering where life has taken you. So, here's to a reunion and a restart!

I hope you'll say hi - your presence would encourage me to continue. And if you have any wise words of advice to share on how you balance it all, bring it on!

Happy Saturday!

~Trista~

    1. Woohoo! We can do this. Moderation is key! I tried to leave a comment on your latest blog post... I couldn't find where to comment. I'm out of practice I think!

  6. Hi! Welcome back! We all have to take a break every so often. Blogging is a great outlet but it is definitely the easiest thing to cut when life gets hectic! Looking forward to seeing more from you!
