What's it like to come off a two year sabbatical from blogging?
I guess we'll see. Maybe a little like a bear coming out of hibernation. Where's the tree to scratch my back on...? and the berries... dipped in chocolate
A lot has happened around here in the last two years...not all of it good...some of it really pretty stress inducing... like sending my first homeschooled kid off to a boarding high school (for awhile), sitting bedside for a month then eventually losing my mom-in-law, taking on the role of caregiver of my father-in-law, dealing with some pretty serious teen rebellion, getting our firstborn done with high school and off to college...then back again six weeks later...

But there's been some pretty exciting and joy inducing stuff too. There
have been lots of church activities and opportunities for service, some
major holiday and birthday celebrations with the people I love the most,
a pretty significant diy kitchen remodel for a ridiculously low price, a
few wallet friendly weddings and showers for friends, lots of budget
conscious travel, several tasty new food concoctions, some major room
makeovers on a dime, a new puppy, and even our own 25th wedding
anniversary and vow renewal just this summer.

I've put off returning to blogging until I had things "just right". Trying to decide whether or not to dip into my tiny savings and hire a Pro to redesign my blog, frustration over the elimination of the offline blog editor I had been using successfully, reserving a spot with another blog host, but then not knowing how to make the leap, so it was just easier to put off the re-entry. Until now. I just can't pass up a good anniversary date. And all hibernations must come to an end.

So... if you don't expect it to be pretty and flashy maybe you won't be disappointed. My hope is that you'll find at least a few Pin-able ideas and how-to's in the near future. I'm just here to help.
Thanks, mom and my other reader, for sticking around and not deleting this bookmark. (Do people bookmark sites anymore???) I'll try my best not to disappoint.
