After a few weeks of craziness with tons of blogging, I’ve taken a few days off to enjoy some time with my family. It’s felt a little strange because I’ve become used to a hectic blogging schedule, but it was good to take a break. I’ve been spending time with my kids, baking Christmas cookies, sending out Christmas cards, and finishing up the shopping. It’s been great. I have a bunch of recipes to share with you all too!
I absolutely love my blog and I am so thankful for all of you wonderful readers. It’s because of you all that I’m able to do these great product reviews and giveaways! I love this and plan to keep on doing it. However I’m going to slow down because I simply can’t keep up on the pace I’ve been.
I’m not the next Simply Stacie. Or Dear Crissy. They are both fabulous bloggers that I love and have aspired to be like them. But I’m not.
I’m Erika. I’m wife to a wonderful man. I’m a stay at home mom to 4 kids ages 8 and under. I homeschool my children. I’m a daughter/sister/friend. I’m someone who loves her church and community and wants to be more involved.
One of my downfalls is that I compare myself to others too much. And that’s something I’ve been trying to work on. Because God made me me. It’s one thing to try to improve myself, but it’s another to hold myself to an impossible standard, which I do far too often.
I’m trying to keep perspective and priorities straight. So I will continue blogging and I will continue doing giveaways. But I won’t be doing quite as many.
I hope you’ll stick around and continue on this journey with me as I know it will still be a lot of fun!
My sweet children – I love them so much! :
