Hi Everyone! I’ve missed you and this blog!

I’ll be honest, a LOT has changed since I’ve last blogged.

Well, of course the obvious is the whole pandemic issue… damn Covid. Like most of you, it’s completely upended our life over here for the past 2 years or so. It’s given me a very different lens on priorities and things that need to change in my life. There’s a lot there, but the gist of what I’m saying is, I’m not the same “Fenced in Momma” I was before.

Don’t get me wrong, I am still the same person; just tweaked a bit.

For starters, I still know blogging brings me joy. It’s my outlet. A much needed outlet these days. The problem is, I’m not feeling like sharing all the ins and outs of everything the same way.

Over the past 2 years my littles have gotten, well, not so little. They are basically little mini teenagers who will then become full grown people, and I’m feeling more private about them the their struggles now. It’s more their story to tell, not mine to really share with the world.

I do still have things to share- but they will be more about me and my “momming” and soon to be 40 year old self (right, where did the time go??).

I am hoping most of you will understand and will want to continue to join me on this journey of motherhood, wifehood, adulthood, basically all the “hoods” still that I will blog about.

A few other changes to note since my time away includes:

  • We got a new puppy, Randall the boxer. Sadly, we also said goodbye to our first pup, Carter the boxer.
  • We moved… in the with in-laws for now while we build our home in a new Chicago suburb. Along with this, I have a lot of useful information on moving I will be sharing with you all very soon!
  • I started working with a couple new passions that include organizing, writing, and books.

Basically what I’m saying is,

“Hi, I’m still Emily aka Fenced in Momma, I’m glad to be back, and I’m glad you’re still here!”


I’d love to hear how you are doing in the comments below. How has all things Covid affected your life and how are you managing. I’m here to entertain, help, and grow right along with you!

Thanks again for peaking over my fence and welcome to a bit different type of blog from here on out!
