Some big BIG changes on the horizon for Lacquer Land!

I know I've mentioned on here a few times that I have lost my blogging mojo and how tired I am. Well, there's been a very good reason for that-- my husband and I are expecting our first child... and our second! Yes indeed-- we're having twins! It was certainly a shock to learn that there were two of them, but we're very excited and happy! It will mean a lot of changes, but it's going to be wonderful. Eventually, hah! But seriously, we're over the moon and even though there's a lot to in the meantime, we're looking forward to starting this next chapter in our lives.

 Obviously, this will mean some changes for the blog and probably some down time for the blog when the babies come home. We're due in late October, but with twins it could really be anytime before that. I haven't quite decided how I will tackle the early days/months yet, but hopefully I can get some marathon swatching sessions in before the babies are born and get some posts lined up for moments when I can keep my eyes open long enough to actually post. I suspect there will be some time that this blog will be "on hiatus", though I may try to set up some of guest post schedule (maybe 1-2 per week to keep things from going completely dead). As we get closer, I'll figure out what I want to do.

I promise that this won't turn into a pregnancy/mommy blog (though I can't promise I won't ever talk about it, sorry). I will be back to posting regularly soon-- I hope! I'm still having some bad days, but I think it's starting to get better. Additionally, even though the experts say that the being exhausted part of the first trimester is supposed to let up, I still feel pretty tired after working a full day and it's hard to work up the energy to post. Honestly, this post has been sitting as a draft for almost two weeks! But I am trying (hoping) to get back into some sort of rhythm. I am floating ideas for a couple different types of posts, but haven't made any headway with actually doing it.

Stay tuned for new posts later this week-- I will make it mission to get something new up on the blog!

    1. Thanks Liesl! It's going to be amazing and probably a little scary.

  3. Wow, congratulations! How exciting (though, the sounds of twins scares the crap out of me....just one at a time for me please! lol).

    And no worries about baby talk on YOUR blog. Honestly, I LOVE blogs that are personal! Makes me feel like I can connect with them more.
