Welcome to DoubleyouDot!

Hello friends!

I’m back!!!!!!!!!

And do you like the revamp? DoubleYou Dot is an evolvement of LoveChugs, and more me this time around.

Just as I had nailed what I thought was the last nail into my blogging coffin (really everyone, I was done…deceased….no more blog….ever!)  the girls over at Blog Doo recreated this whole new, beautiful space for me—and then those damn wheels starting turning in my head again–and it happened.  I’m officially back on board.

I’m a blogger.

(WHOA. I felt a little alcoholics anonymous typing that out. So, weird. -I’ll have to explore on that issue more later.)

Sooooo. What’s up? Where have you been? you ask…

I could start by spilling all my guts about whats happened over the last 3 years.

The juicy details like:

How I had my third baby, put on the RISE Festival, got life altering surgery on MY FACE that had some pretty horrible and annoying post op problems, or how Bronson almost died in front of my very eyes one night, or how we ended up homeless, jobless, and possessionless all within 6 weeks.

Yes, guys… alllllll that. All .of it.  Within 6 weeks. Then we have  to add my daughters diagnosis of being allergic to basically all good tasting/edible children food, plus animals, trees, and grasses…. To my other daughters development of crippling anxiety…To moving 3 times. Did I mention I just had a newborn baby? Oh yes! I did. 

Inevitably,  all this together lead up to my ultimate physical, mental, and spiritual shut down of 2015.

Whew-its a lot.

And like I said before, it’s juicy, too.

But that will have to come later.

For now, I thought the best way to comeback would be to show you guys what my day to day life looks like at the moment. It’s this: 

We moved to the beach and I’ve done nothing but mother these beautiful babies for the past 2 1/2 years and watch Netflix with Bronson at night. We go to the beach, and eat at the same 3 restaurants in town over, and over, and over again.  We don’t go shopping anymore because for the most part we stopped wearing clothes.  We switched them out for bathing suits and coverups. And Ozzy, is, well…Ozzy is just naked all of the time

I’m telling you this now as a heads up…Our life is not all glamorous. It’s not fancy, and it sure as hell wont be curated. It’s not even interesting, really, but I’ve realized it’s my calling while I’m here to share my life.

So, that’s what I’ll do. Share.

No matter how much it sometimes makes me uncomfortable, or makes me feel like a “me-monster” (you know the type:  Look at me! Look how I eat! Look how I shop! This is what I wear! Me! Me! Me! My! My! My! Blah… Blah…Blah…), I feel a need…meh.. more like a knowing, yup, a knowing that I need  to document it all.

It feels good to back.

-W.

P.S. Did I mention that I missed you. Cause ohhhh boy, did I miss you! I can’t wait for that online friend club to be back in full swing.

P.S.S One more shout out to Lauryn and Erica over Blog Doo for creating my new space—I wouldn’t have done this without their talents and encouragement!

Man oh man did I miss your blogs! Love Chugs found me at the perfect time on my life when I needed a huge dose of someone else’s life to give me perspective and remind me of the important things. And I’m so glad you’re back! I love the way you approach the world, the way you let your kids be themselves, and the way you and Bronson are so in love that it shows in everything you do. Welcome back to the blogging world! <3
