Summer 2016

Hi everyone!! Just checking in with all of you. Sorry for the “summer hours” blogging schedule. The weather was absolutely beautiful and it was so hard to take a break from all the summer fun. But I wanted to pop in here and let you all know, I have not forgotten about you. As a matter of fact, I have been busy these past couple weeks, updating and improving my blog. The changes are primarily technical rather than platform changes…and so therefore, won’t be as noticeable.

All of that said, I am ready to get back to writing and building…my two loves that I am missing very much. For those of you new to the blog…WELCOME!! I hope you will subscribe and stay up-to-date on new posts as they are published. You can do so by clicking here. Also, I would love for you to follow me on Pinterest and Instagram, where you can check out my latest projects and tutorials and our life in all it’s craziness 🙂 . Please feel free to email me. I answer all emails.

My blog will continue to focus on two topics: My Story and D.I.Y projects. Here’s a sneak peak of a project that I will be tackling soon…
