I'm starting to dig my way out from whatever it is that I've been under and I've so much to share with y'all this week. I just don't have a lot of time this morning, as I'm running behind on getting homeschool started. (I actually slept in for the first time in a long time)
I want to thank each and every one of you who have left comments and visited in spite of the fact that I've been absent and haven't been returning emails. I absolutely HATE not replying to comments left on my blog, but I seriously needed a break. It means a lot to me that you'll still read and comment - I'll be better about replying, because I really do read and enjoy each and every comment...and I don't want them to stop! :)
This past month has been so good for me. If you ever feel overwhelmed, take a step back and look at some things you can streamline. I have posted less this month, put "Behind the Blog" on a hiatus, and resigned as a full time contributor to Blissfully Financial (you'll still see articles from me - in fact, I think Darla's posting one today, but I'm not on a schedule any longer). It's been phenomenally good for me.
God has been so incredibly good to me and has provided me an association with a company that I am so excited about. I am the newest team member and Blogger Design Coordinator for Pulse Point Design, a custom web design company for authors, artists and small businesses. I am thrilled to be part of this team - if you check out some of our clients, you'll see some very popular and well known Christian authors and you'll also see some beautiful designs. I will not be designing, but coding for blogger designs such as this one that I recently did and am very proud of. It is the first vertical navigation bar I've seen on blogger.
Our family has also made a major change that has so far been good for everyone. We prayerfully made the decision to change churches, which is a blog post in itself. Our children have only known one church all their lives and I was so concerned this would be so upsetting for them, but once again, it just goes to show you - if God's in something, it's going to be okay. He's made the adjustment period virtually painless - our kids LOVE our new church and we are finding more ways to serve and be active, which is a HUGE blessing for us.
So, there you have it. A small recap of sorts. I'll be posting more regularly than I have been and will fill in all the details as I can. I've taken some really great photos that are sitting in my Photoshop folder waiting for touchups, crops, etc. and will be posting a few of those as well.
And as a final tease...for the month of October...I'll be giving away something that will put every other giveaway I've ever done to shame. (Yes, it's that good) So watch for it (hint: It's a compound word that has something to do with pictures)- you won't want to miss it. I promise you!
