Back in business

I am back! I am alive! And well! And I’m finally blogging! Did you miss me? 😉 ha!
I was in a bit of a slump the last few weeks. You know, just feeling…slumpy. Nothing was particularly wrong, but nothing was particularly right either, you know what I mean? Could be all the rain. Rain is rather gloomy, you know? The first day is hooray-i-can-wear-a-sweater-and-curl-up-and-watch-movies-and-read-books-and-ignore-all-the-chores-and-watch-the-rain-fall kind of day. And then the rain continues and I’m like sunshine-i-neeeeeeeeeeed-you! (Obviously, I grew up in a desert 😉 I looked a bit like these sunflowers. Slumped. Blah. Anyway, I’m on the mend! Taking a little blog vacation felt wonderful! Just what I needed. (And I’m back for good now! Can’t get rid of me that fast!)
Annnyway….I’ve got a lot to tell you! Like how MY BABY GIRL IS TURNING ONE IN A WEEK. Uh, can I get a big NO WAY, THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING, HOW IN THE WORLD DOES A YEAR FLY BY SO FAST? Yeah, I’m pretty much in utter and total shock, but nothing planning a pretty pink and gold birthday party can’t cure. I never knew party planning for a sweet little girl could be so fun (!!!) More on that later. Lots more!
For now (since I’m writing this way past my bedtime!), I’ll just leave you a few photos of the queen. Seriously guys, I can’t get enough of her. XO!
