For the last week or so, I feel like I've been totally second guessing myself about everything but, specifically writing. I question if blogging is "safe" and then I question how other people write even more transparently than I do and how they aren't worried about people stalking them, or endangering their families. I know, I'm bringing up scary stuff here but, this is real and this is what's been streaming through my mind.
I'm praying on this and trying to figure it out for myself. I know that one size doesn't fit all but, I'd really love to know what your thoughts are on blogging and if you think it's safe. Maybe send me an email or just post a comment with your thoughts. I feel like a lot of bloggers talk about their home town, they Tweet that they're going to WalMart and they even say the name of what church they go to. I never mention any of those things but, even with the amount of privacy that I try to keep, I'm still struggling with this a bit.
On a much lighter note, I need to mention that I'm getting so excited for fall! Yes, we are still in August and the temperatures are hotter than they've been in a long time but, I'm already dreaming of all things pumpkin spice, cinnamon candles, boots, scarves, leaves and pumpkins. Yesterday I bought a fresh container of Pumpkin Pie Spice and I intend on using every last bit of it.
Over on Dashing Dish, I found this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Granola. Doesn't it look amazing?
The last few mornings we've had a great time playing outside with friends. Yesterday we went to a splash park with our MOPS friends. I think I enjoyed the water just as much as they did. Staying cool helps so much with nausea.
Today we met some friends at the lake. We played in the water and it was great except my little sunshine girl wasn't too happy. She isn't used to wearing a life jacket and I think it was cramping her style a bit. All it did was show me that we need to go to the lake more often and get her used to wearing a life jacket and playing in the water. You'd think that I would have taken pictures but, I didn't take a single one. I'm telling you, my game is slightly off lately, I've even been slacking on picture taking!
So please, share with me your thoughts on the safety of blogging and then tell me what you most love about fall. Summer is great too, but one of the most beautiful times of year is just around the corner and I'm so ready.
