Obviously my “Hopeful Return” did not happen. I was
a little embarrassed completely embarrasses when I received my end of the year blog stats from WordPress. While I love blogging, I have not felt the desire to blog. That changed a couple days ago, but in all honesty I contemplated just deleting the blog. Complete humiliation of not staying on top of my project really weighed on me, but I do not want to start a new blog…so I am here, humble and ready to stay on track this year.
Because of my absence I thought I would recap the last year. I may have been absent from the blog, but life was fairly busy while I was away.
Keeping things short today so that I can type up some more posts to schedule for later this week. Happy 2016, blog friends!
