I left my blog hanging rather abruptly last fall just after we found out that Big Daddy was deploying again. Sorry about that. To be honest, I felt like I was juggling a thousand balls that had set on fire and the thought of just one more thing to keep up with was overwhelming.
So, I walked away.
It wasn't a conscious decision so much as a "no time to blog today" followed by a "gosh, I'm just so tired, I'll do it tomorrow" which led to opening up my blog and not knowing how to begin again with so much time between us.
Like an old friend you haven't seen in ages, this blog was never far from my mind and heart. So often, I'd compose a post in my head but couldn't move past the awkward stage to make it real. I'm praying that just like that old friend, I can jump back in here as if no time has passed and catch up on all the things I've missed while I was away. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED, you guys! Small things, big things. The updates are coming very soon. I'm determined not to let this space go to waste.
