An Explanation For My Absence – Why I’ve Been Missing…

AndThenZen Baby Nephew Why I'm Missing

I, for one, cannot believe it’s been nearly six weeks since my last post. Things have been pretty hectic around here for three months or so, and I have been struggling to juggle it all, and so, blogging has taken a back seat in life for a bit.
