Back At It!

I can't even begin to tell you all how excited I was to click on the "create new post" button this morning! I haven't written a new blog post in just over a year and I've really missed it. Once Barrett was born (3.12.15), blogging became one of the lowest to-dos on my list and eventually just fell off. I took advantage of every last second of my 3-month maternity leave and then jumped right back into my fulltime marketing job. But once I was back at work + had a baby in MDO/daycare, Luke started a new job, I started a side business, we took on leadership roles in our Sunday school class, life just...happened.

But a couple of months ago, I started to realize that I'd done exactly what I told myself I wouldn't do. I forgot to make time for me. I got wrapped up in being a wife/a mom/a marketing manager and a restlessness began to stir in my heart. I had no outlet. My life was diapers and cooking dinner and email marketing campaigns on repeat. And then one day, my sweet husband said, "Babe, why aren't you writing anymore?" Y'all, this is why God gave me Luke. He just gets me! So, here I am. Back to writing and putting all of my thoughts and stories on virtual paper so that they don't stay all cooped up inside. I'm so excited I can barely stand it!!

I can't wait to document more of pregnancy #2 (YES! For those of you who haven't heard, baby #2 is on HER way! We couldn't be more excited!!), recap Barrett's first year, and loop everyone in on all of the Hinton happenings these days. Thanks so much for following along!


  1. So excited for baby Hinton #2, and for Barrett to have a baby sister! (Also, the poet in me really wants you to name her Elizabeth so you have an Elizabeth and a Barrett, and all you'd need is a Browning or two!) Sending hugs and thoughts of an amazing pregnancy!

    So glad you're back.

    1. Thanks so much Sarah!! So happy to be back! You are the sweetest. :)
