I'm Back!

Well hello and a how do you do?  It has been so long since I created a post I found it challenging to navigate my own blog!  

I never expected to be gone this long but life is life and sometimes we have to just sit back and take a break, let things follow their course and hope to land somewhere great. 

So much to catch up on but before I do that I must say that I had planned on 'coming back' last Friday however in light of the devastation that occurred on that terrible day, I just couldn't bring myself to post.  Those precious innocent children and their parents will forever hold a place in my heart.  

Let me first say that I have been following all of my favorite blogs the entire time I was on sabbatical from my own.  They make me so happy and inspire me everyday.  Pinterest has become a part of daily life, I have discovered new blogs and made a few more blog friends along the way.  So even though I haven't been posting, I have been bloggin'!

My plan for this post is to keep it short and sweet.  Sort of ease back into it...

The most wonderful thing has happened when least expected.  Let me give you hints by saying Christmas this year will be a blur, it will be the first time in my adult life I have not gone all out and decorated, it will be the first year we do not have a tree (heavens to Betsy!!!), first year my house is complete chaos with lots of cardboard floor to ceiling.   Did you guess yet?  Well here are few more hints...

Hope that helps.  Talk to you soon.
Lot's of love
