I know I haven't been blogging much and I promise that will change.
I have been working out in my own head and heart how I have been feeling about this little blog world that I have come to love so dearly.
When I first started blogging I was mostly writing for myself to journal and see how I was growing and changing and document all the funness of planning a wedding and being a newlywed.
Now my blog has grown to a little over 100 followers (whoo hoo!)!!! I am still in shock and still no incredibly honored and humbled.
But I started to feel..... pressured. Like I NEEDED to write because I had people waiting to listen. Not that I think any of you stare at your computers or smart phones anticipating a new Captivated By Love post but there was that sense of pressure now.
I felt forced... like I needed to say something to fill the silence. I didn't like feeling like that so I took a short hiatus.
WHY do I blog?
What is the point of it? Am I having fun and is it giving my joy? Do I have something to say?
Those were some of the questions I asked myself this past week.
I blog because I love it. I love writing my thoughts and feelings down. I like sharing with others the ups and downs of being a newlywed and what its like in my little home.
The point of my blog has always been to give me smiles and hopefully give you all some too. I want to be inspired and to inspire others. I want to hear your stories and how you met your husbands. I want to listen to how you are doing and show you that you can get through your difficult situation.
I want to laugh while I show you my silly puppy and even sillier husband. I want to share with you what the Lord is showing me in this current season and hear what He is showing you.
I am still getting so much joy from it. As long as I am breathing.. I have something to share.
Happy happy thursday to you all!
