It has been a long time since I blogged here. I will give you two reasons, (because a lot of you have asked) and then I will give you a promise.

I have been INSANELY busy the last 5 months.
I have been in language school every day from 8-12. I have a toddler and preschooler. I have a husband and an apartment, and various other vague and mystical responsibilities, plus, living here in a foreign country is a LOT OF WORK!!!!

I have been coming out of lonely and somewhat dark place in my heart and mind. The Father is loving me, and giving me what I need. He is meeting me. HOWEVER, as I have heard many times over the course of my life, “when you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all”! In that case, I have chosen blogging silence!!!

I will always be honest on here! I will not post blogs out of duty, I will do it because I WANT to share something with you! So if there is a loooooooong silence, it just means I don’t have anything worth sharing for that time!!! And, I will always do my best to think about what I write before I post it. I want to honor my Father more than anything, and I realize a blog, (at least in my case) is NOT a private diary!
I love you each so much, and I am thankful for this forum to share my life with you. Thanks for reading, and thanks for caring!

Love, Hallie

ALWAYS. I entirely relate - I was publishing three blogs twice a month, and then fell off the face of the earth. Funny thing is, I felt poorly about it.

When you need to step back, do so without concern. I love you one million, and any words that are nice to share would be lovely.

I have also spent about 1.5 years abroad and understand these unique struggles. Some of the struggles would be awesome to share with the blogging audience to help people understand the nuances that you must deal with that we have no capacity to imagine. These can be quite interesting, even if they are resulting from your misery...

I love you no matter what-
Miss Rose

Dear Hallie, I understand. You are one busy mamma and wife and I appreciate how you still always take the time to be a friend (especially to me) now and over the years. I love hearing what you have to blog about - thanks for sharing what you do. <3 Annie
