Are you out there?
Can you hear me?
Can you read this?
Is it working???
Hopefully you read that to the tune of “Into the Unknown.” Or maybe you didn’t because your life doesn’t revolve around Frozen 2 like mine currently does!
Welcome to the new Belle and Roses blog, where I currently have ZERO idea of what I’m doing! Change is hard, but it’s also good for you. I love the new look, but I’m currently frustrated/annoyed with myself because I can’t figure out how to do anything here! It would be so easy to just revert back to the old blog and posting platform. But I won’t.
There is still A LOT for me to figure out, but I wanted to do a quick post to overcome my fear of doing them at all.
I know I don’t usually post on Wednesdays, but my anxiety over wondering if I could do it or not was getting too overwhelming so I had to jump on in and give it a try. If you are reading this, know that this is my
second, third, fourth attempt at doing this tiny little post. Yep, that’s correct. I could have done this in two minutes flat, with my eyes closed, on the old blog.
Ok, here’s my first attempt at posting a picture. Can you see it? Our neighbor got a guinea pig for Christmas, and Matty made the fatal error of mentioning to Lucy that we were going to go see it . . . about three hours before we were actually able to go see it. Have you ever wondered how many times an excited four-year-old can ask if it’s time to go see the guinea pig yet in a three hour period? The answer is . . . a lot! It was later than we anticipated, but we threw bedtime to the wind and went to go meet Ginger the guinea pig! Lucy was smitten. Emmy was unsure at first but warmed up to her eventually. I sat there and wondered how one tiny, furry animal could poop so much . . . on my children no less. (My sister-in-law Carla is dry heaving right now, I’m sure of it! #animalhater)
Ok, I’m mentally exhausted from trying to figure this out (kidding, sort of), so that’s all for today. I’m honestly not sure if you need to sign up for the email again or not. If you didn’t get one notifying you of this post, please enter your email again in the form on the right side of the screen.
Also, I need to figure out how comments work. So, if you have a minute, please try to comment on this post so I can see how it all shakes out.
Thanks so much, and may the blogging odds be ever in my favor!
