January 28

It’s been many months since I’ve blogged, worked on my book series, etc. Not my intention. But perhaps those three words sum up 2014  better than any others. It was a year that saw more heartbreak and bad luck than most in recent memory. Over the course of those twelve months, I closed my press after fifteen years, I nearly died and I had falling outs with people I never imagined having falling outs with. That said, it was also a year that gave me one of the greatest gifts ever: a healthy, beautiful, endlessly curious baby girl. But as with all periods that put one through the ringer mentally, emotionally and/or physically, at least for me anyway, I found myself looking inwards, wanting to find some semblance of sanity in the new world order before looking outward again. So blogging was not a priority, nor was writing, nor were many of the other things that used to make up my day-to-day existence, and that was fine (and arguably even needed) for a while but the time is coming to make a comeback. Put bluntly: I’ve made as much peace with 2014 as I’m ever going to make and now it’s time to move on and get back into the saddle. So… Hello! I missed you all.
