I really do apologize everyone! I great appreciate the emails, the messages, and Facebook comments asking about where I am and what I'm up to. I really am not (again), dead. I took a break from blogging, though honestly I can't really explain why. I got busy, yes, but not too busy. I think I just needed to get away for a little bit, take one thing off my plate so I can focus on everything else.
But with June Wedding Season Madness over I feel I am ready to take on this blog again. I hope you can forgive me and continue to read my blog... especially since I have about a dozen AWESOME reviews and products to tell you about. :P
I also have started my newest exciting adventure. Well... actually, there are TWO exciting adventures but one I can't tell you about yet (no, I am not pregnant!). The one I can tell you about is our house! The 100 year old historic (it's a recorded historic landmark!) farm house we moved into at the end of May. It needs work, it needs love, but it's already getting it and I can't wait to share our home joys and woes with you. If anyone is thinking of buying a 100+ year old house and renovating it... stick around. You may (or maybe you won't!) change your mind. Haha!
I did want to throw one more piece of good news in here for anyone who read my divorce post a few months back. I got a message from my ex-husband a few weeks ago letting me know that he is back to work, he has quit drinking, and he has been going to AA meetings. He apologized for everything that happened over the past couple of years. We are not (and cannot) get back together. I am still with my love, Cody. But I was overjoyed to hear that he has taken the steps to recovery and turning his life around. He said I made him realize he wanted a wife and wanted a family and is doing his best to improve himself so when he does meet someone new he'll know how to treat her. This really makes me happy. I would love more than anything for him to remarry and get the family we couldn't make together an find the happiness we weren't able to find. I know everything happens for a reason. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't be sitting at this desk in this beautiful home with a man who loves me and whom I love taking a nap just a few feet away. So I truly want him to be as happy as I am and believe he will be.
So thank you to all my followers who stuck around for me, I really do appreciate it! More coming very, very soon!
