This Is Real Life – New Baby Edition

So, admittedly things have been slow going jumping back into the blogging game around here.

A Big New Project

Okay, so I know I’ve been doing that annoying thing for weeks where I kept saying, “more to come…more to come…” then crickets. And I just know you’ve been on pins and needles (insert heavy sarcasm), so today’s the day I’m spilling the beans. Remember that time at the first of the year where I wrote…

Well hey there! It’s been a minute (or two) since we last checked in together. We’ve had some seriously CRAZY stuff (in a good way) happen at our house in the last few weeks, so I’ve been on a little hiatus. I’ll tell you about the craziness in the next few weeks, but today: The…
