My bloggy break was just like a real vacation....I enjoyed my time away but it's great to be back.
Here's a little glimpse into what I did while I was gone.
The most important thing I did was spend less time at the computer and more time with the people that mean the most to me. Spring (and a little bit of summer) arrived while I was gone and we spent time doing little things that mean a lot.
I went to see the awesome and incredible Olympic Swimmer Dara Torres when she was in the ATL for a book signing at The Carter Center. My good friend and neighbor, Kelley, went with me and we've had lots of laughs about how starstruck we were.
I completed some home design projects (with many more to go). My favorite was replacing the light colored carpet on the stairs between our main and top level with a wild cheetah print runner. Grrrrrrrr......
You'll also notice Olympia got a face lift and a new home...surrounded by a bunch of lovely red tulips!
Hubby and I hosted our second annual Kentucky Derby Party for 40 people. This year the sky opened up and poured rain right after I had the deck all set up. We had to reconfigure and rearrange 30 minutes before the party started...
...but we still managed to have a great time with our cherished family and friends.
Less computer time meant more time for reading. And I'm thrilled that I have more stacks just as wonderful waiting for me.
I'm also in the midst of doing a little prep for bathing suit season. If you want more info on this, let me know. The first couple days are rough, but it's a great plan. (bread? bread? Did someone say bread?)
And of course there was shopping and flipping out the winter closet for spring and summer. That deserves a post all its own.
It's great to be back and I can't wait to catch up with all of you.
