Checking In

Hello, my dear friends!  Words cannot express how much I have truly missed the comradery that comes from blogging!  I hope that you are all doing well. 

Over the past year, I became more involved with my community theatre group and began working behind the scenes.  It has been very enjoyable.  I hope to share some of those projects and costumes soon either here or via my crafting blog, The Crafting Table

We have also transitioned our eldest son into adulthood, and as he left the nest, it was a bittersweet moment.  It is incredible how fast time goes!  It seems like just yesterday I held him for the first time as a young woman, and I can't believe he has finished culinary school and is now off to work at a Four-Diamond resort and restaurant.  We couldn't be prouder.

I hope this post finds you all in good spirits and health, and I will be back to blogging shortly, so please expect visits from me soon; when I don't blog I have the tendency to "unplug" completely, which means I have a lot of catching up with everyone and a good deal of what I know will be enjoyable reading. 

To all who have remained loyal subscribers to my silly little blog, I so appreciate it, and thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

See you very soon.

  1. Well, personally? I've missed the heck out of your posts! They are a highlight of my day and I love taking the time to sit down with my tea and read what you're written. So please, come back soon (although I do understand since I am blogging less and enjoying life more!!) - Nan

  2. Glad to see you come back. Sounds like you've been having fun though and congratulations on your son's success and transitioning to his new life!

  3. It is very bittersweet when your oldest leaves. I have felt this too! Thanks for joining HSH!

    1. I empathize completely. Thank you so much for stopping by, Sherry and for hosting your wonderful party each week!

  4. You were missed and I'm glad you are back. Wonderful accomplishment for your son. It was hard at first when our kids left, but now hubs and I love our peaceful and quiet home. :) Your new job sounds so interesting! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
