Behind the scenes.

Recently, I broke down.

You know those days where it's raining, you make your coffee too sweet, your favorite pair of jeans rip, your child doesn't wanna nap, and all of a sudden everything else in your life seems to fall apart. Yea- those.

Deeper than that, I began to reflect. So please be advised that from this point forward there will be zero disclosure- kids, go to bed.

Originally, I had started this blog to share with my friends, family, and the interested public. I wanted to share with everyone checkpoints in Landon's life along with mine as a mother and elaborate on small precious moments and milestones I felt were of importance or simply just my favorite memories throughout this journey.

Lately- it's become something other than what I intended, a chore. Now, I don't know if this is due to my focus on what I post, how busy my life is, or my interaction with social media and my followers. I guess you could say it's a mix of everything- like I told you, one of those "everything falling apart kind of days".

So, as would anyone, I immediately thought to shut the whole thing down and destroy the site. I figured if it was becoming so daunting that getting rid of it would make me feel better but...this is mine, my space, my thoughts, my originality: mine. 

So I dug deeper down to where no one wants to go but knows they must visit one day: the core, the heart- what was it that was really bothering me? & I found it. The truth- it's the truth that was missing. 

So here it is- the why, the how, the when, and the what's next. I've never personally introduced myself to you, the woman behind the signature "Landon's Mom", but I'm here now. Attendance: present. 

To be continued...
