Hello, hello! I was right, I couldn't stay away from this blog for a whole month. Three weeks will have to suffice! While I have been out I have done a ton and nothing at the same time (know the feeling?).

I went home for ten wonderful days to Minnesota to see my family and friends but most importantly to see my cousin Kelsey get married. We had a blast and it was great to see everyone and let down a little bit. Trips home are always go-go-go though, so I honestly came back more tired than when I left. Worth every (waking) minute though!

The move has been a slow but sure thing. Everything is moved in but I'm further behind than I would like to admit on the decorating/finding a place for all my things phase. The additional space is lovely though and I am taking full advantage of the new dishwasher in my life.

Lastly, I'm in the middle of the Blogging Your Way e-course with Holly Becker form Decor8. I'm learning so much from so many amazing teachers and am feeling refreshed on the blogging front and ready to kick-start it back up.  Been a little behind on the readings and homework but hope to get all caught up this weekend. I know I said it before, but really, if you are thinking about starting a blog or need a course on it, take this class!
