I'm Back!

Hey everyone! It's been a super long time since I last posted. It's Summer now (well, not officially, but in Texas... it's Summer!), and I'm excited that things have slowed down enough so I can get back into a regular posting schedule.

The last time I posted I was in the middle of some major redecorating.  And... well, I did finish most everything I wanted to get done (except the one and only room I planned on redecorating in the first place. How does that always happen??)!

But while I was away, there was a lot of other things that went on.  I mean... A LOT!

Winter ended.

Spring began.

My precious Boxer, Mack, was attacked by another dog! (I have pictures, but they're not pretty!)

Bad storms came through our area that resulted major fence damage (like, the entire fence was knocked down. Not fun!)

Most of you probably remember this, THE ROYAL WEDDING!

Aw, isn't that just so sweet! And isn't she just so pretty?  I swear, the week before the wedding all I watched was shows about the Royal wedding. It was so much fun!

And then all was quiet until last week when one of these came through...

This is an actual picture from of the many tornadoes that touched down last week in North Texas.  Thankfully we didn't sustain any damage, but a lot of people in our area did.  Pretty scary stuff!

So, all in all, there were a lot of things going on. More than I can remember, actually.  But the important part is....  I'M BACK!

I've missed you all so much! And even though I haven't commented much (at all!), I have been lurking in the backgrounds and reading posts throughout the whole time I've been away.  I think my little break has done me well, because now I feel energized and ready to go!

While I was gone, I started writing again.  Of course, I'm not writing at record speed here.  But I consider the fact that I'm even writing as a mini-miracle in my book.  Because writing.... hasn't been happening around my house in a while.

Anyway, I know this post is getting a little long and ramble-y.  The main point of my post was just to say HI!

So.... HI!

I'll try to keep posting regularly. My goal is to post at least once a week, but I'm not going to force myself, so sometimes it might only be once every two weeks.  Or even once a month.  But, I'll be here, and I hope to see everyone and get a chance to visit everyone soon!

Hope everyone has had a good start to Summer!

PS:  Today I'm also posting over at BooKrushed.  So if you get a chance, please stop by!


  1. Welcome back! Sounds like your hiatus was quite eventful!

  9. Also, so sorry about your dog. You must've been so devastated. I hope he's okay now.

  10. Nice to see you back! I just came back from a break myself. It's like now that winter is over we're all coming out of our caves after hibernation!

    I'm so looking forward to summer!
