Here we go!

a few months ago I came across this SAHD’s blog while researching warm weather  types of baby carriers. I live in Puerto Rico. It’s bloody hot here. Anyway, this dad gave a review of the ergo ventus that I was eyeing.

I was actually drawn into his blog and began reading older posts and quickly began liking what I was seeing. And not to mention his daughter is a doll! Aside from him being uber athletic and a great runner , who ENJOYS running – sigh- he was very relatable. 

I think what intrigued me most about him was that he blogged everyday. Every. Day. Who does that? What parent has the time? I even have help with my ONE and the last thing I think about is blogging. My to-do list just keeps getting longer and longer of things I THINK I need to do. 

So in thinking about this, I’ve decided that I’m going to do the same. Going-dad has certainly inspired me to not only blog more and enjoy those fleeting moments but to maybe also embrace running. So. Hard. 

So here’s the deal, I’m going to attempt to blog daily (though only having a hotspot on my phone and no wifi in the house, internet access gets tricky). But that’s just another excuse. This was supposed to be an exploration of the world around me, my thoughts and experiences, and my passion for food to intertwine with everything. That part has been lacking. 

So stay tuned for musings overload as I invest back into cooking! Added bonus: gabriela is getting to be such a little lover of food (I’ve been making her food since we started solids— FUN)! 

And YES… More Julia to come!!

And go check out going dad, going mom, and Avery!

    Wow, thank you so much for the kind words! Glad I could be an inspiration! Reading this is what helps to keep me motivated to keep blogging as well.

    That said, don’t force it, I’ve been victim and still struggle some days with that feeling that I “have” to blog. But then it becomes work, and that takes away from the whole thing. Lately I’m trying to reduce the amount of time I spend writing since that’s when I should be playing with Avery, hence the videos I’ve done now.

    Anyway, I’ll be following your blog now and am sure you’ll do fine. Plus, your little Gabriela is quite the doll herself! 🙂

      Aw thank you! And I totally get about what you mean when it feels like a ‘have to do’ sorta thing. Hopefully I can find a balance! And the vlogs are too cute. 🙂
      Thank you for your encouragement!
