Yes I did miss my blog, the research, the writing, but mostly the friendly rapport with all my friends that I followed. I also missed the comments from my viewers.
Sometimes Life comes around to shake us up and we need to retreat; that is what I did. Now I feel I am coming back to my real world.
I feel like a kid starting school; I am nervous and wondering if this is the right thing to do. I find I need beauty in my life right now and I can’t think of any other place than right here; reconnecting with my friends in Blogland.
Great weekend; Jean was in a Chef Showdown, a fundraiser for our Eat Local,
