Hello, my long lost friends! I hope you’re enjoying the first tastes of Fall. Right now I’m snuggled in warm sweatpants, with fluffy slippers on my feet, while listening to the sound of rain drum against the windows. I might go pour myself a glass of fresh apple cider to complete the ambiance.
Anyway, I wanted to pop in for a minute to say, “Hello!” I’m sorry that I disappeared for so long. It’s been quite I while since I’ve visited the blogging world. At the beginning of August, I went on an extensive vacation with my family. Before I left, I decided that I wanted to take a break from blogging for the entire month of August in order to give myself time to revamp my blog. Well, once I returned from my vacation, I decided that not only did I want to give my blog a facelift, but I wanted to rebrand the entire thing. I’m talking a new name, a self-hosted site, a new theme – the works.
In the process of deciding on my new blog name (more on that later), my husband and I came upon the perfect house! We’ve been on the house hunt for quite some time, but, until recently, we hadn’t come across anything that met our needs. When this house appeared, we knew we had to put in an offer. I’m happy to say, our offer was accepted! Right now we are in the process of setting a closing date, and shortly after that, a moving date.
Now, not only am I in the middle of completely rebranding my blog, but I’m also surrounded by elements of my home scattered across the floor and empty boxes I’m attempting to fill. Let me tell you, trying to pack your house with a toddler dead-set on unpacking everything you just packed, is quite the challenge.
Before I left for vacation in August, my original goal was to have my new blog up and running by mid-September. Obviously that ship has sailed. Between packing, unpacking, and lots of blog rebranding, I probably won’t be back on a regular blogging schedule until the end of October.
So if any of you are wondering, I’m still here. I appreciate all your likes, comments, and all my new followers! Every time I open WordPress, I fall more in love with the blogging community. I can’t wait to spend more time on this blog and get to know some of you more. I’ll try to stop in again soon with updates on the house and the blog. Until then, I hope you all are enjoying the fall weather! I’ll be back soon!
