I don’t normally follow craft or fashion blogs, but something about Wanna Be Sewing Something caught my eye. I read Najah’s post, How to Return to Blogging with a Vengeance, several times before commenting. It seems that, like me, she had a long hiatus from blogging due to a new family addition, and like me, she’s working to get back into it.
Her post got me thinking about how radically different our lives become when our little ones are born. How suddenly things we once cared so much about and spent so much time on slip away. And, you know, that’s okay. There’s something powerful in babies and children that reset your life perspective forever.
And that growth isn’t a single moment, either. Both of my girls help me to grow and change each day. Priorities shift and change. What was once important becomes less so. And yet, as I grow and change as a mother, I still maintain the core of who I am. Writing is still a passion for me (rusty though I am) just like sewing is still a passion for Najah.
I am eager to continue reading Najah’s blog and fantasizing about what I might like to sew. She seems like the kind of person with whom you just want to sit down and have a cup of tea and a good chat. Her fashion sense has incredible flair. And I can’t wait to see what comes from her next as she, like me, rediscovers blogging.
