It’s been almost a month since my last post. I know this. And you know how when you haven’t made the effort in a friendship for a while and you try again, it’s always a little awkward? That’s what has been preventing me from writing recently. It started out that in light of the bombing at the Boston Marathon, I just didn’t have anything that was important enough to tell you. Honestly, people died… why would you want to read about my latest salad dressing?
I then had an entire series of posts about children’s books I was very anxious to share with you. All that needed to happen was my sitting down to take photos. And, I got an email from my uncle that his granddaughter, my cousin’s 14 week old baby was dying. All the treatments and medication hadn’t been able to heal her sweet body and she passed on to heaven as I was in the car on my way to Detroit to get my passport expedited.
After my return home, I wasn’t in a place to really communicate. I didn’t have anything to communicate. As each day as passed, I’ve wondered how to break back into sharing here on this blog. So instead of a fabulous post, I’m being honest. I’m still cooking, I’m still quilting, I’m still parenting my little people. I still have thoughts and ideas to share… and want to share… I just needed a break. And without planning it, I got it.
