#BLOGMAS RECAP :: 2017 / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!


Well my darling dears, let me start off this post by saying MERRY CHRISTMAS -- I hope you had a wonderful day with your loved ones. I sincerely hope it was filled with joy and all the sweet, merry things.

As you may have noticed, I stopped #blogmas unintentionally at Day 19. I say unintentionally because I had every single intention to keep going. The entire month of December I was a week ahead of my posts, until about the 14th, where I stopped writing for a weekend because I flew to Texas for a family trip.

While that trip was only three days, I came home with some bug and have been sick since then. This year was a strange one because I'm also pregnant -- and that put Christmas shopping on the back of my mind which is SO not like me. Add being super sniffly, exhausted from flying and a toddler who just recently learned to walk, I was doomed once I stepped foot onto Pacific Northwest soil.

The interesting is that when I came home on the 17th, I didn't even start to scramble. I waited until the last minute and I was wrapping gifts at 11:00 am on December 25th. I cannot believe I fell so behind. I'm feeling rather disappointed in myself, but at the same time, I am cutting myself some slack -- I'm not super woman. I'm 18 weeks pregnant, wobbling around like a penguin already and trying to chase my super independent toddler around.

When it came to blogging lately, as well as most of my social media feeds, they've have all taken the back burner because I've been so worn out. #Blogmas has helped rekindled the fire and given me that push to get back into the swing of things. And because of that, I'm super happy I got to day 19 even if I didn't make it all the way to the end.

Here are the posts I missed:

  • My Christmas Tree + Home Decor 
  • Felix's Christmas Pajama Haul 
  • Christmas Pet Peevs 
  • When We Open Presents 
  • The True Meaning of Christmas + Favorite Holiday Verses 

If you're still curious about these posts, let me know and I'll figure out a way to blog about them while still being relevant. When it comes to #blogmas all I can say is maybe I'll participate again next year, maybe I'll set smaller goals next time around, or maybe I'll make it all the way to day 25.

I definitely had great time this year. Thanks for reading along!
