It's been a long long time.
I have dreaded writing this post,
because I just done know where to start.
I've been gone.
I can't tell you where,
because then I'd have to shoot you.
Not really, I just like saying that sometimes.
Since this is a house blog right now,
I feel obligated to show you
that while we were gone
to the other side of the world,
my husband found some projects
to work on.
He is not one to lounge around reading magazines,
eating delightful chocolates,
watching Christmas movies,
he chose to look about for things
that needed fixing,
and set out to fix them.

We made some wonderful new friends.
But the best thing of all
I don't really feel ready to get back to the real world yet.
I just want to look at these pictures and remember
how soft this little one's skin is.
I want to snuggle her close
and smell her sweet smell.
She's coming to see her Nana in a few months
and I will hold her close then,

waiting to be finished.
Then we will all be together again.
