My dear friend,
I cannot thank you enough. Every time I see a comment with your name or chat with you on social media, it brightens my day. Without you I know this space wouldn’t be here.
But now I have to share something with you. The last 6 weeks I’ve been struggling. I feel as though I’ve lost a bit of myself, and gained a huge new part. I’m so honoured and grateful to have been blessed with E joining our family but now that I’m coming out of the newborn haze, I’m trying to remain myself.
The tough part, I’ve come to realise, is that ‘myself’ is an evolving thing.
This is where you come into it. ‘The Life of Clare’ has been predominantly about our cooking, gardening, about living locally and Eco adventures, as this has been our life. As you know, things have changed a little, and on top of those things our life now involves parenting E and building a house.
I’ve been finding it tough to write for you, my dear reader, because the things I now want to write about (Eco friendly baby bags, cloth diapering and our struggles in getting the loan approved) don’t necessarily fit with what I think you want to read.
But I’ve come to a conclusion, I need to be true to myself. I’m going to write honestly and openly about my life, The Life of Clare and I sincerely hope you’ll stick around for the adventure.
Yours with tears of honesty in my eyes,
