Dusting off my keyboard

Wow, I forget about this place sometimes. I was just looking back at some old posts and it reminds me of how little I write these days. I write descriptions for my Youtube videos, emails to friends. captions for my Instagram photos and posts to my co-workers about style and program tips. I guess it adds up as writing, right?

I'm turning 40 in a few months. I started this blog in my 20s! It is so crazy to think how time has flown, of all the places I've been, people I've met, ways I've changed. Hitting a milestone always makes me sentimental and ponderous. I want to make lists of things to do, fix things around my house and in my life, learn and read and travel, and yet, because things haven't changed that much, I'm still an expert in procrastinating.

It happens to be my niece Taylor's 13th birthday today. 2003 was the year we lost my grandmother, the year I ended a terrible relationship that still haunts me, the year my money problems got out of control. But it was also the year I became an aunt and we brought Rocky into our family, too. Like I said, I'm feeling sentimental. Even just thinking about being an aunt melts me into a big pile of goo. I haven't blogged in so long that there's an entirely new person in our lives, my newest little niece who is turning one in a few weeks. Best job ever.

I gotta go! Maybe I'll write more soon or maybe I won't.
