I'm baaaaack!

Geesh it's been too long!  So that you know this big "vacation" from blogging isn't going to be a regular thing for me.  I'll give you a quick run down of what's been happening and why I haven't been blogging.

We went on vacation in April which was wonderful, we came home a day late because we had a little boy with a bad stomach flu.  After we were home for a few days and our little guy was starting to feel better little brother starting throwing up. :(  A few days later when he started feeling better guess who got it?  Mommy!  Washing your hands until they just about bleed sometimes just doesn't cut it when your in a house and cleaning up so many yucky little germs.  When everyone was finally well my 42 year old uncle who has been battling cancer started to really struggle, it became obvious he didn't have much time.  (That's not a typo, I said 42, my dad's baby brother).  He passed away last week and although I knew it was coming, it was incredibly shocking and horribly sad.  I still can't believe he's gone.  With all of these things going on I just didn't have the creative blogging juices flowing. 

Now that things have settled down I'm ready to get back into it.  I will be posting regulary again sharing my home projects, sweet deals, decorating tips and wonderful wit (wink wink) :) 

See you back real soon!  Thanks for sticking with me! :)
