Help a sister out.

My, my, my SO much has happened since I was last a dedicated, daily blogger!  It seems I have missed so much.  And yet, there is this whole social media thing that keeps folks abreast.  Today, when I sent out my Monday Motivation, I had a question sent as a reply to me via email that simply said, "Are you going to update your blog anymore?"  Honestly, it was nice to have been missed.  I replied, "I think I will.  Just for you.  Check tonight."




So... here I am.  Honoring my commitment.  And asking you to help me get back in the groove.  I even printed off a few of my pins from Pinterest regarding blogging to help me get rolling again.  Unless I get some fabulous suggestions from you, I'll just start with those.  Otherwise, I'd be happy to answer any burning questions you might have regarding my life and perhaps curiosity around what I have been doing career-wise or motherhood-wise or great places I've travelled, or whatever in the world might be swirling around in your head.  Just shoot!  I need the uumph to get back on the horse! Help a sister out!


MO

Also, yay or nay to pics in the blog?  I have to get back in the swing of things.... and figuring out how to get pics to computer, then to blog is one of those things that needs the cobwebs cleaned out!

Yay! I always checked your blog first thing every morning! Remember when your blog was so complete that you would have it printed and bound at the end of the year! I love pictures! Looking forward to you being back! You're just so darn good at so many things it's hard to pick. DaVinci curse! Love you! Holly & JakeDog

Welcome back!

I would love to see updates on the extended family and your entourage!!

A good portion of fb is devoted to John maxwell business, I would like to see more personal things here. Old fashioned stuff like house decorations and people that are part of your everyday life. We used to see sitters and dance photos and pics of Lizzie and twilight sparkles.

Less business, more mo I guess lol

And even though you shared some on fb, I would love to see the story of Jin Jin come to life on the blog. That story is a blessed testimony to faith and believing!!!

I have missed you. I am glad you are back to your roots. Do you ever scrap anymore? I miss the tutorials, and kits. I miss the Melanie the person!

Pepper said...

I agree with Kimybeee. I miss hearing all of the personal life stuff. Like how are the girls and you, for that matter, doing with Stacy moving? I am still blown away that she moved.

How is Gabby's hand? I assume it has healed with no lasting issues. How do the girls like school? Your Ellie is the same grade as my middle child. I love to hear how school is done in other parts of the country.

I agree with everyone else! We enjoy reading about you and your family...Todd the Bod, Ellie, Gabbi, Jin Jin, Stacy, Madi, etc. I live wayyy back in the Appalachian Mountains of SW Virginia, with not much opportunity to travel. I think it's neat to connect with you, living wayyy over there in Louisiana! ;-)

Just tell me everything you did that day and pen me as your imaginary friend that is always there so I can read what fun we had that day changing the world. I like the pics. Love ya girl! Can't wait for 11/11!!

Heidi Foster said...

I agree with all the above - I love hearing about your life, your family, your girls, your home. Stacy moved, how did that come about? How far is she now? His Gabs hand healing? How is school life for the girls going? Are you decorating your house for Fall yet?

Love, love, love hearing the adventures of Ellie and Gabbi as well as the rest of the Groves/Massey families!!!

So happy to have you back! Wish I had thought to send that reply to a Monday Motivation email. You were definitely missed. :)

I've been thinking about you a lot lately; I always say to myself that I should write a little message to you, and I think now is the perfect time.
When you came to Paraguay on last February, I met you the last day of the trainings and since then I really got connected to you. Although we did not work together and we only shared very little time together, I assure you that it was enough to deeply absorb everything we talked about.
I follow you on Instagram, I see your posts on facebook and really admire you as a person, as a Mom, as a professional; you inspire me and I want to learn from you. I would like one day to be able to participate in one of your art retreats, meet your clinic, meet your beautiful family and learn from you somehow.
I like the collection of quotes that you paint and the tutorials that you do, if you can share some of that in your blog I would be very happy; and of course I enjoy everything you share about your girls.
Receive from Paraguay a big hug full of affection and a great blessing for your life and your beautiful family.
P.S.: Please excuse my English if I used a term incorrectly.

So many things I would love to see full your blog. Here are some ideas that top my list:
I know you talked and reflected on Jin Jim miracle but would love to see a blog of the whole journey.

I live by the saying 'it takes a village to raise a child'. Would love to hear about your village.

I love when you would reflect on the days of your art retreats.

I'm still a fan of your random blogs loved seeing what things required a picture, what books you were reading, and some of your current motivators and ideas.

As we get into fall and the holiday season I look forward to see the decorations, parties, and goodies you create.

Most of all just looking forward to your blogs. You are always feel of ideas, insight, and great adventures.

So glad to see you back. I have missed your blog about your family and your life. I became a fan of your blog years ago before your Jake passed way. Have checked your blog frequently and hoped your would update.
