I’ve Missed You, please read and forgive me!

First off, I’m so glad you are still here. I would like to apologize for vanishing. It wasn’t that I needed a break, or that I didn’t want to connect with you, or that I wasn’t interested anymore. I’ve simply been sick. Don’t worry, in a good kind of way.

My husband and I found out were pregnant a couple of months ago, and I couldn’t share it to the world wide inter-web before my body gave into a pregnancy sickness called Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Some know the sickness as “Princess Kate sickness.” So I’m okay with being compared to a princess. 🙂 Essentially, I spent most days on the couch with a bowl right beside me for 3 months. My sweet girl and I watched Toy Story more times than you could count, and I ate a lot of potatoes. My husband has pulled double duty and, like a champion, took care of the house and cooking while I was sick.

It overjoys me to let  you know that I am out of the worst of it and beginning to feel better. Thank you to everyone who checked up on me via email and social media. You are all too wonderful. ❤ IMG_3841

      Yay! Oh to be back! It’s funny how as soon as I started feeling better, my soul ached a little to start writing. I guess it’s the people like you that made me want to jump back in! Thanks for being such a good friend. You are one of a kind.

      Thank you so much Reva! I am glad to see both of our ‘droughts’ of writing are now over. I am doing much better now and feeling like a human again (I thought for a while I was turning into a zombie). Thank you for your kindness and prayers. I can’t wait to catch up on your writing.

      Here’s to another year :)!
