Moving On

This blog was started as a way to document my journey in Seattle and through infertility.  Three years later it has grown into so much more.  It’s a place I can think through issues I face as a new parent, a forum for sharing my favorite recipes, and a place to remember my adventures in eating and travel.

If you know anything about me, you know that I love blogging and I am constantly creating new blogs.  It makes me a little sad to think I’ve outgrown this blog, but I think it is time that A Neon Princess be retired.  I am ready to move on to my next diary.  This new place will hopefully last me through many years to come.  I will be sharing more about the things that make me smile, and of course the things that make me think.  I hope you’ll join me over at Mary’s Loves. I haven’t posted anything quite yet, but it’ll be coming very soon.

See you there!


This Moment

Life is full of ups and downs.  I tend to talk/write about the downs.  It’s how I process problems, work through stress, and deal.  I realize that maybe this is painting a lopsided picture, because in actuality life is pretty grand.  But then, is it okay to say that? If I do say it, is that a humble brag, a brag, or just obnoxious?

This morning we went for a walk through the park.  It was sunny, the birds were chirping, R was happy, I was feeling productive.  Then I saw this door…

Someone had the foresight to make this lovely door face a public park and remind passersby to be at peace.  While my daily grind is jam packed with planning meals,  cleaning, entertaining/educating a child, this moment was one that reminded me how lucky I am to have the chance to do all of it.
