So I’ve been away and obviously a lot has happened. Last time I posted a personal update we were pretty newly pregnant with our twins and honestly, I think I still didn’t totally believe it myself. Well, on July 21st at 10:13 PM at 38 weeks exactly, we welcomed Vaughn Anderson and Harrison Otto into the world and have been getting to know them ever since. They are perfect and amazing and life is very different. In the next few weeks I plan to do a little write up about the end of my pregnancy and our delivery.
This does mean a change in direction for Lost & Fawned. While I was dealing with the pain of infertility, I vowed I would never become a “mommy blogger” if I was lucky enough to have children. I still don’t want to blog exclusively about child related topics, but the reality is that I am now a full time mom and these little guys are my life 24/7. So Lost & Fawned will become a blog that covers parenting related topics. I will still be blogging about crafting, backpacking and design, but I have to blog about things I know and right now my life is all about diapers, spit up and soothing two tiny humans. I understand that this won’t be relatable to all my readers, but I hope you understand. I plan to keep my parenting posts pretty real. I wouldn’t trade my boys for anything, but it hasn’t been sunshine and rainbows and I appreciate bloggers who are honest about their experiences, good and bad.
So with that, things will be resuming here. I’m not sure what my posting schedule will be. The babies are very demanding and my days are unpredictable. I have lots to share and have been bottling up ideas for posts. Thanks so much for your support over the years. Looking forward to sharing this new phase of my life and the blog with you all.
