I have been gone for far too long.
But I just couldn't be here for awhile.
2012 has been a tough year. Not a bad year. Just a tough year.
I've been struggling with illness for well over a year, really over two years. My body ached and my spirit was tired. I had to take a break from so many things. This blog was one of them. My physical limitations kept me from exploring the outside world, from creating simple recipes and cooking elaborate desserts, from doing so many things that once fueled this blog.
I opened a store in August, and the majority of my creative ventures and time have gone into the tiny space called Blue Kite. I've been crafting as a job, and that's been completely wonderful. But it left no time to craft for the blog.
But as tough as 2012 as been, it's been a year of blessings.
I'm slowly getting healthier and regaining the ability to be more mobile. I'm not near where I was before, but I have faith that in time I will be. I just know it.
And Blue Kite has allowed me to start healing physically and emotionally.
2013 will be an even better year. I know people always hope for the New Year to be better, but I know in my heart of hearts that it will be a great year. I have so many dreams for the store in the coming year. And I have dreams of once again discovering the outside world with Colin. And as a result, the blog should be getting back to normal :).
So please excuse the hiatus I've been on, and get ready for the New Year. It's gonna be a good one.
