in a nutshell...

I wish I had some great reason why it's been more than 6 months since the last time I actually posted anything.... There are about 100 things I could use as an excuse, but they'd all be that.. just an excuse:) So, for the 5 of you who've been wondering what I've been up to during the past 6 months, here's a quick recap.

July - Wonderful trip to Florida to spend some time basking in the sun with some of my favorite people.

August - Kids went back to school.... my sleeping til 11:00 and going to bed at 2:00 came to a sudden and screeching stop... darn those alarm clocks and school bells:)

September - Went back to work at a job that I absolutely LOVE with people I absolutely adore! BTW: 4 and 5 year olds totally rock!

October - Celebrated my 36th birthday with the amazing team of staff and incredible volunteers of Ridge Church @ the n*rich conference for North Point Strategic partners in Atlanta at Buckhead Church.

November - We were so blessed to have Rusty's family come to North Carolina for our family's first Thanksgiving without Mom. We made Chex Mix, told funny stories about her and by the time the first tin was full, it seemed like she was right there with us:)

December - Spent Christmas with my family in Fort Myers and laughed over and over as my Grandma repeatedly told me how 'hot' her physical therapist was:) Enjoyed seeing some great friends and wearing short sleeves for 10 days.

January - well, I guess that brings you up to speed... I am heading back to Florida on Wednesday.... my Grandmother (yes, the one with the hot physical therapist:) is in failing health. I am so incredibly blessed to have a husband, whose first words, after he hugged me, were to tell me to go book a flight home to be with her. What would I do without him?

So, there ya go... my last 6 months, in a nutshell!
