Have you missed me?
(Um, Jordan, we haven't even noticed you've been gone…)
Ok, fine. Either way, I've been a touch MIA lately for a few reasons that I feel are important to fill you in on:
- I've been on Vacay. What originally started as a “quick 2-day trip” to a blog conference shifted to a 6-day mini vacay for Bubba and I to spend time with family in his home-town in Concord, CA. As much as I tell myself, “ooh! I'll be on vacation and will have nothing to do but blog all day long!”…it just doesn't happen. So, hence the crickets over here.
- I've been planning lots of events. Between teaching at the Pinners Conference, getting FBC'14 underway, live Q&A's, the Free Movie Day, and busting my buns to figure out the Fun Cheap or Free Goes to Sea cruise, there's lots going on over here, which is all super exciting, but super time-consuming.
- We are redoing our site! Woo hoo! We are migrating from Blogger to WordPress, getting a new logo, tagline, colors, feel, look, everything. BIG project, very time-consuming…plus, I will have to completely stop posting soon (for a few weeks) while the migration to the new site happens, so more patience needed soon!
- I only work a few hours per day. Ultimately, I'm a mom and wife first and foremost. Since my near-death experience with Hutch 2 summers ago I make it a point “unplug” when my family is around, giving me only a few hours at night to work (which is tricky when I have an event, activity, if I'm sick or exhausted, need to do the dishes (heaven forbid), or just want to hang with my hubbylicious). Since the average post takes me 3-5 hours start to finish (no joke) and my body won't let me stay up until 2am for more than 2 nights in a row, something has got to give. So, thanks for your patience as I try to be a non-working (but totally working) stay-at-home mama!
Here's more vacation fun!
