Wait, What? Really?

I'm back. Yup, that's right, I'm back. After a few weeks to get my life in order, it's back to blogging for me.

I wasn't sure how to start this post. I was afraid I had lost my momentum and that you had lost your interest. But then I had a conversation with a really good friend who I hadn't spoken to in an embarrassingly long period of time. I was a little nervous to talk to her at first. Sure we have been friends for the better part of 15 years, but we hadn't spoken in almost a year (so embarrassing!). You know what? The conversation was great! Sure the first few minutes were tentative and we were both a little less forthcoming than we had been in the past, but then we hit our groove and it was like no time had past at all. That's what I love most about old friends. No matter what has happened and how long it has been, you can always just pick up where you left off.

It's been a few weeks, but now I'm picking up where I left off. I have some ridiculous stories, delicious recipes, and a bit more time to devote to blogging. While I'd rather start by sharing the most ironic thing that has ever happened to me, I might as well answer the million dollar question: "Where was I?"

As you know, I work in higher ed. That means a really big commencement ceremony and weeklong festivities near the end of May. It also means a lot of communications activities and late nights. On top of my day job, I can finally proudly say that I have started my own media and public relations business...sort of. I have one client (hey, we all have to start somewhere!) that I have been devoting a lot of my non-work hours to. The story I am pitching for them is beyond exciting and we have gotten some great media attention. I am very excited about this project and hope to have more like it in the near future.

Between my day job, my new business venture, and trying to have a life, something had to give. As much as I love blogging and sharing with you, I needed a few weeks to get myself in order. Now that I am organized I am excited to get back to writing. I have missed it! Thanks for sticking by me and I will do my best to keep you entertained with stories of (TEASER) cars breaking down, home improvement projects, easy summer recipes, adventures in baking, and my most daunting exercise challenge to date. And of course about SUMMERTIME!
