The Absence of Summer 2012

You may (or may not) be wondering why it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything. Because we all know (or at least are about to know) that I love writing and blogging and telling/sharing stories. Well, there’s one word that sums up my absence: SUMMER.

No, I’m not on some kind of school vacation (I graduated from college 3 years ago) or some sort of beach holiday where I spend every free moment at the beach (though I do love the beach).

And with all the things I was up to, I didn’t have a whole lot of weekends off either. After an amazing wedding season this year, it’s official.

Be Prepared (for what?)

Any time I hear someone say “be prepared” I totally hear the Lion King in my head. It’s great. : )

I know I haven’t written in a while, which is why you all are going to just love the bombardment of blog posts I have coming – be prepared for those, haha! One will be on making a living off of what you love (meant to have that one finished sooner) and since I have no idea what order the others will be coming in (depends on which inspiration builds enough first in my mind) I’ll just let you wonder about those!

To give a quick update for family and friends since, it’s true, I’ve been crazy busy and haven’t kept in touch like I intended, here’s what’s new:
