My last post was over two years ago. Two. years. ago.
Taking a break from blogging wasn’t something I did on purpose. That school year (2012-2013) was my son’s last year of high school, my daughter made it on a travel softball team, and I was still trying to train for a half marathon. Sitting down […]
