Now that we’ve been in Pikeville for four full months and have two full months of medical school behind us, I think I’m starting to get back into a routine (maybe as routines tend to be short-term things for me) so I’m taking some time to clean out and refresh ye ol’ blog. You might notice that it got a bit of a facelift last week. I also did a little behind the scenes cleaning out by going through my drafts folder for possible posts. I decided that I should probably give up on some of them (like a recap of my internship from Summer ’12), but some of them will finally see the light of day.
Things you have to look forward to… some Paleo recipe experiments and a home decor DIY, an update on my new job and maybe even a tour of our house.
With this new blog design I have the option of posting things several different ways. One of those ways is to put something up as a quick note and not a full post. Don’t worry, I’m not going to turn this into a second Twitter feed (check the social icons on the top right if you’re interested in that). I’ve decided to use that kind of post to put up things that I’m thankful for. Just quick snippets of thankfulness for everyday blessings. I think it will help me keep a good perspective, and maybe you’ll get something out of it too.
Every time I refresh the blog I spend some time thinking about why I blog and what the point is. One part of it is sharing our everyday life with our friends and family who are farther away than we’d like them to be. Another part of it is simply that I enjoy writing about things that I’ve been thinking about. It can help me process and clear my head. Lastly, I write in the hopes that others, people I don’t even know, might read it and be encouraged. I don’t have a lot of readers, but I enjoy the chances I get to interact with those who wander virtually by.
I’m excited about breathing some new life into the blog and I hope you are too!
