I know it’s been a few months of silence but after a whirlwind summer I decided to pop in and say hello.  I have missed blogging tremendously but for the reasons why I originally started blogging.  I did not miss worrying about my page views or advertising or throwing out posts just for the sake of posting.  I just missed … Continue reading
