Hola my dearest readers and friends; after 2 months of a self-imposed and much necessary break I'M BACK into the swing of blogging!!!!!!
During my hiatus I did a lot of talking, eating, and getting together with family and friends. I visited my Mom often, my youngest daughter started her senior year, I moved my oldest daughter to a larger university 180 miles away (there was a river of tears and more tears on the way there and on the way back), started 3 new classes for two endorsements that I'll need for my job and called my friends all the time; including those overseas which gave me a large than usual (about $200.00 more!) but so worth it phone bill.
However, I must confess that it was darn difficult to keep my promise of less Internet and more family and school time because I want to read and comment on my friends blogs so instead I would check my dashboard and look at all my ladies new photos and new posts and think "Ohh I miss you all"!!
Its been heart-warming and quite special to realize that I had established some wonderful friendships and connections with women that are very similar and very different from me. I started to blog as a way to expand my horizons and with the desire to create some more human connections with other people that may or may not have the same interests and views of the world as I do.
Even though I'm extremely grateful for all of my followers; I never consider or worry about numbers of followers or readers; for me it's all about living my life, dealing with all the ups and downs and trying to make some long lasting friendships.
And, I think that I'm very lucky that I had made some fantastic friends with my adventures in blogger land.
