I have this nasty, nasty habit. When life starts to overwhelm me and I start feeling really behind I don’t even try to get caught up, I just let everything go. That’s what happened with this blog this year. That’s why I love the New Year. A fresh start, the slate is wiped clean, new beginnings.
I love blogging. I love sharing a little bit of home with my brother in California. I’ve not done that for months and I’m feeling a little guilty. So, in an effort to get him reconnected with home and introduce his beautiful new wife to her in-laws I am going to try this whole thing out again. Here is a super fast synopsis of what happened since the last time I posted. Then maybe I can start anew! 🙂
