taking a break

as you have most likely noticed, I have been really bad about posting frequency
life has been even more hectic then usual and with the holidays, I have to take a break
so I will be quiet here until after the holidays
although I will miss it, I do not want to feel like my blog is a chore as that will suck all enjoyment out of it
and what is the point in that?

sending Peace & Love to you during this holiday season
See you in the New Year!

I'm a bad girl, but I'm back!

I'm a bad girl...I really have been slacking when it comes to my blog...
my apologies but I am realizing that during the summer it is almost impossible to get on the computer as there is so much to do elsewhere/outside.

along with everything else we revamped a motorcoach this summer and embarked on a massive cross-country trip for 6 weeks... we just got back.
anyhoo, so much to catch up on!

I have so many fun photos to share that I will probably break it up into several posts
in no particular order...

puppy knew we were leaving
