Menu Plan: May 28 - June 3 {and Turning a Corner}

Looking for dinner inspiration? Here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week!

Let me start off by saying thank you to those of you who offered advice after reading my last post. I've taken some time to think about where I want to take this blog (again) and how I want to get there (again).

It's clear to me that I don't want to give up blogging. But I still have to work on not putting so much pressure on myself. As I continue to juggle the various areas of my life, I must accept that the juggling will affect what I can do here.

Here's a taste of what has happened in my world over the past few days:

  • Some of my responsibilities at work have shifted. Somehow, my workload has both lightened and doubled, and that has taken some adjusting.
  • Early last week, I endured a scare related to my pregnancy (more on that later) that took a toll on my emotions. While I'm fine now, I haven't been able to shake off the experience yet.
  • Stephen is in the middle of his busy travel season for work right now. That means I'm handling most of the household- and family-related responsibilities by myself.

Any one of those situations would be enough to pose a distraction from blogging. But I pushed through and managed to get through the week. And, more importantly, I let go of the guilt I was feeling over not blogging.

I gave myself what I needed -- time. Time to focus on work during the day. Time to focus on my health. Time to focus on being a mom and enjoying what little time we have left as a family of three. I even managed to make time just for me.

Doing that allowed some blog items fall into place, including a new brand partnership. (More on that soon!) Things are definitely looking up, and it feels as if I've turned a corner... So, I do hope you continue to stick around. There are some exciting things on the horizon that I can't wait to share with you!

In the meantime, why don't you check out this week's menu plan?
