The other day, while on the phone with my mom, she asked me if it was time to bury the blog. To be honest, I'm not really sure what to do about this little corner of the internet. When I started this little space, we had just moved to Belgium and it was a way to document our adventures abroad and keep in touch with friends and family back home. Then, after we returned and settled in here in LA, it was a way to share pictures of a rapidly growing baby... But now, the mundane details of our day to day life seem too boring to share (we went to the park! we took a nap! we ate broccoli! we went to the park again!) and any photos I'm able to snap of the little tornado are on my iphone, which are easily uploaded to Instagram while on the go. And if my options during the only free moments I have (during Ina's nap) are: write a blog post or take a shower... shower trumps blog every time. Plus, there's dishes and cleaning and laundry and... all those other things that never seem to come up in blog/insta/social media world.

So friends. Here we are. I'm not ready to be done with it completely. But I'm not inspired enough to dedicate extra energy to it right now. Maybe it will make a big come-back? Maybe as I start drawing and painting and creating again I'll want to share what I'm working on? Maybe as Ina can entertain herself for more than 30 seconds at a time I'll have more spare moments to spend here? I'm not sure yet.

So no, mom. It's not time to bury the blog just yet. I'll let you know if/when it is. Sorry to leave you hanging since the new year, and just bear with me until I figure out what to do...

Happy February!

Last night Ina got to ring in the New Year with her two favorite guys:

She stayed up way past bedtime, made a mess with a whole lot of spaghetti and an even bigger mess with confetti (sorry, Brigs, we can come by later to help you clean up...)

This morning we went out for pancakes (and a lot of coffee), and we'll continue the fun at the park, and then a much needed nap.

Hope your year is off to a great start, too!
