I am quietly returning to public view. No announcements on Facebook, no bells or whistles. It's been long enough since I've heard from the police that I feel safe coming back around again.
That being said, I will definitely be limiting the identifiable information I share, as well as info about the kids. This was enough to scare some reality into me about how I may be jeopardizing my family's safety by sharing about them with something completely unrelated to blogging. It's so hard since I think blogging is a great way to connect with others, and because of that I value transparency. I'll probably keep my Instagram locked down since I'm most active over there, but if you want to follow that I'm happy to let you. I just like having control over who exactly is seeing my pictures each day.
In other news, I was offered a new job in the suburbs of Cleveland so there is a move in our imminent future. We are scrambling to prepare the house for listing--including finishing our kitchen renovation--and once we sell we will hopefully be moving about 45 minutes away from where we live now. So there are lots of changes going on in our lives and this is truly a season of chaos. We are super bummed to leave this city and especially our church behind, but too much has happened to question this relocation. Things have fallen into place in a way I could only dream of. We're anxious and excited and can't wait to start this next adventure.
