Hello Friends, It’s Been A Long Time

I have been sitting in my chair staring at the laptop screen for ten minutes, unsure of where to begin. Life has been chaotic and beautiful lately!

We are finally on the verge of a post-pandemic normal, and I’m happy for things to start opening back up again. I received my second dose of the vaccine on Tuesday. Yesterday, I felt like I had been hit by a truck, but it beats the alternative, so I slept a lot and caught up on Supernatural. I’m almost halfway through the last season. It’s bittersweet.

School is going well. I finished the Spring semester with flying colors! I had one teacher who absolutely should not be a teacher because in all of my years of academia, including grade school, she is by far the worst teacher I have ever had. I use the term “teacher” loosely because she didn’t actually teach.

Last month, we visited our niece, Ivy! She is growing so quickly, but she is the sweetest baby who loves to snuggle for a few seconds before she wants down again to play. ❀

I could go on about the deaths in my family, the numerous trials I’ve been through recently, and even some of the joys I’ve experienced, but life is full of ups and downs, so I’ll just leave you with some recent sunset photos and promise to try my best to get back in the blogging game!

I am working on a short story!! I hope to get that posted soon.

I hope all of you have been well!

Love & life lessons,

    I would say I have missed you, but you have always been there for me. I can say I have missed your words and photos. I am glad to hear that school is going well, in spite of the sometimes less than exceptional teachers. Good to see you back and I look forward to your short story being published! Much love!

  7. Very sorry for your loses and celebrating your joys. Life goes up and down and all we can do really is go with it. Nothing is controllable save for yourself and your reactions. (Not sure why I added that it is suppose to be a help if not ignore me) When the writing bug hits you will find your way back. By the way absolutely stunning pictures. And the one of you is stunning. How’s your coffee?????????? πŸ™‚
