Hello! Is this thing on? Hi, friends! Remember me? I’ve missed you! All is well here and around our house. I’ve been a little MIA (well, a lot MIA) here while I was juggling several projects that all were due in the same few week period of time. Crazy times.
Besides the big blog crash of 2018 (you may have noticed that the blog was literally MIA a few times, which gave me a bit of a fright), and organizing the Simple Organizing book launch (thank you all for your support!), I also was finishing up a new 60,000 word book manuscript (which I turned in last week, yay!) plus trying to deal with quite a few other projects and updates around the house.
Speaking of book writing, I’ve mentioned this before but writing a new book is a strange experience because the whole time I feel like I’m still talking with you, except you can’t hear me :)
Basically it’s like I’m talking to myself, so it’s good to be in a place where you can hear me again!
Tomorrow I’ll give you an update from my dining room (sneak peek at the top of the page).
As I was looking through some photos this weekend, I got inspired to do a little spring round up for today.
