Honey, I owe you an apology. I've been too distracted and I stepped away from the blog. One week turned to two, then three. Posts scheduled weeks ago went live, with nothing in between.

I'm sorry about that.

And when I DID attempt to write, nothing of substance came out. So the latest collection of posts is kinda all over the place. No real focus or connecting themes; just words and pictures.

I'm sorry about that, too.

So I took MORE time off, not less. Because I've learned something in my six years of blogging: you can't force something that isn't there. So I didn't think about the blog. I thought about living a fuller life. And I did. I spent time with friends. I went to museums. I wrote love letters and sang sad songs. I walked along the Atlanta Beltline and I drove up Kennesaw Mountain. I bought new flowers I needed and sold old things I didn't. I made my life bigger away from the website, so I could bring more to the website.

I'm not sorry about that.

Beyonce would be proud. And I'm back now. I've thought about what I wanted this space to be; how to align my blog with myself and not the other way around. I'm here, rejuvenated, refreshed, and ready. Let's do this.
