A Year or so Back…

My friend, Kristy, had started a blog about her baby, who at the time was no bigger than a grain of rice (by the way, if you get the chance, read her blog. It’s awesome. Seriously, what are you waiting for, click that link right now! do it! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I was impressed, and wanted to follow in her footsteps, but whether it was circumstance (I went from part-time to full), fear, or just good old procrastination, I did not do it when I had become pregnant a few short months later. Nor after the resulting birth.

So why now? I don’t know. 2013 seemed like a good year, and I had a few essays banging around in my head, so I figured “Why not?”
