Happy (Belated) 10th Blogoversary

Ten Years! Where On Earth Did They Go…? Hey everyone, I kinda did a disappearing act for a bit but I couldn’t let my ten year blogoversary pass by without marking the occasion (even though I’m off by nearly 4 weeks since it was on August 4th!)

In the last couple of […]

Hiatus No More! Woohoo!

I just wanted to draft a short post to report that I am still alive and kicking – and feeling much better for having a two-week break from blogging. I will be back posting regularly from next week. I wanted to thank everyone for the lovely comments. I have not yet gotten around to responding but I have read them all and I am really touched by the kindness of my […]
