Last time we talked, life was very hectic to say the least. While I can’t say that everything is back to normal, some things are behind us and I’m grateful for that. Jason and I moved into a new apartment, nearly double the size of our previous place. In the dead of winter, no less. Because why should moving be easy? All jokes aside, we love the new space. Settling in has been very sweet and I have not felt at home like this since leaving the parental home some 14 years ago. (Exhale).
While my blogging space isn’t exactly defined yet and creativity was a bit on the dry side this winter, I do hope to return to blogging once in awhile. When inspiration flows, you’ll hear from me.Until next time, I hope you’re having a wonderful start to the Spring.
