Home Again


Well heloooooooooooo! I feel that I've been gone for absolute ever! Is this how the caterpillar feels, when one day, after what must feel like forEVER, he emerges as a butterfly???? Maybe. I don't think I'm so lovely as that, but, well, changed for sure. We all change, don't we? It's most noticeable by those that haven't seen us in quite awhile. Like family that lives so far away and Christmas rolls around, you all get together, and man, those nieces and nephews have sprouted inches it seems. I do feel sort of like that, like I've sprouted inches. I hope that you'll see it too....... and still want to come here and embark on this journey with me from time to time.

You should know that I didn't even visit here myself while I was away. I only stopped by twice since my last post in August, just to change out my Pinterest board in the sidebar. Not even sure why I did that? Guess my desire to 'decorate' got the best of me 😊. Several times since the end of December, I started feeling these little itches to return back here to this familiar place. I'd set out to write but the bubbling twinges of excitement quickly diminished and I decided, nope, not yet. I'm thrilled to say that this time, the little twinges stayed long enough that the thoughts swirled out of my head and into this post. It feels so good to be home again.

I'm ever so grateful to those of you that would check on me during my absence. Some through my e-mail, or my FB page, or Instagram. It meant the world to me, and it's because of you all that I'm finally here, yes, I'm ever so grateful. Since we haven't seen one another in sooooooo long, I have lots to share, so many changes to our little life over here and I'll bet, lots of changes in yours too. But mostly, I can't wait to reach out and share at least a virtual cup of coffee {or two 😉} with you. As women, we desperately need the company of one another. Being the introvert that I am, I forget this, ALOT. I become comfortable being alone. And then one day I realized how much I longed for the time that we spend together here. I desperately want this place to mean something not just to me, but to you too. I hope that I can live up to your expectations and be a friend that is inspiring and thought provoking.

I've missed you so, and it's absolutely wonderful to be back..................  ❤

P.S     If ever I'm away for too long from this little space, you can most likely find me on Instagram. I call it my 'lazy blogger's haven' because I can take pictures with my iPhone, say a couple of lines, and be done with it. IG satisfied my desire to reach out and be social on a much smaller scale. If you'd be interested in hanging out with me over there, just click on the IG pictures in the sidebar and it will magically transport you right over to my IG page. If you click "Follow" when you arrive, we'll be joined at the hip forever 😉

  6. I Missed you my Southern Sister from another (well you get the point). I love the saying Friends are like stars in the sky, you may not always see them , but you know they are always there. Know that someone in CA is happy you're come up for air. Praying for you and your family.
    Happy Valentine's Day, you just made my day a bit sweeter.
