A Bit of a Break...







So, I guess I took some time off this past year, huh?  I grew really busy in the fall, and my blogging habit just dropped off.  There were some moments where I almost decided to stop this blog altogether, but something kept me hanging on.  I'm glad I did.  I've found I really like and need this space in some moments of my life.  

Of course, I decided to pick the hottest day of the year to start this blog up again.  It might have to do with the fact that my office is the only place in the house with air conditioning.  As much as I'd love to be one of those people who just "adapts" to the heat, I've found that it's just not possible.  It wears me down, and any productivity grinds to a halt.  With the temperature reaching about 97 degrees today, I'm cowering in my little office with the air conditioner on full blast.  

I envisioned updating you all on the past 10 months with some type of overview, but it just feels unnatural.  I will provide some updates in smaller dribbles in individual posts.  I plan on posting 2-3 three times a week.  I'm predicting that a more reasonable pace will keep me from becoming overwhelmed.  

Just writing this post gave me a moment to reflect and consider my life over the past year.  It feels good.
