Madelyn turns 7 months today

I often think about this blog, and you, my readers.

I keep telling myself I’m going to set aside a few hours to write a lengthy personal essay, but then motherhood and work fill up my days and I find myself scrambling for time. I’m going to change my approach and start posting shorter pieces here more frequently, the idea being that it’s better to write short pieces than to not write at all.

I have a lot of longer essays in mind, so I’ll write and publish them here as time allows. But I’ll also experiment with shorter posts in hopes that the variety of writing will help tone my writing muscles and keep them strong.

With that in mind, I’m going to close here with a few photos of Madelyn, who turns seven months old today. She’s my little bundle of joy, my daughter! Here are some of my favorites from the past month …
