Hi.

Welcome, friends! This here slice of the Internet revolves around lattes, bookshelves, Pinterest, Emily Henderson, white wine spritzers, China, brass anything, passports and my sweet family. Grammar and important worldly events? Not so much. Consider yourself warned.

Dear Blog...

Dear Blog...

Dear Blog,

I would just like to apologize profusely for neglecting you over this past week. And HOLY CRAP….what a week it was. I promise you if I had had one measly minute to myself, I would have picked you up, cuddled you and nurtured you like you deserve. But alas, last week sucked. There is no real delicate way to put it.

I could go into the details but they can be summed up in one little sentence: I am a teacher.

And say what you want about teachers…but darn it…we earn our tiny paychecks AND our summers. Just trust me on this.

Anyway blog…I still love you. I am still committed to you. I have not been straying and doing other fun things behind your back. I can promise you that. I am simply a victim of an unfortunate circumstance…I have a, at times, very sucky and time-sucking job.

Okay…time to tend to the other two time-sucking (but not at all sucky) things in my life: my child and husband.

Until I have time to write again,

Ditty
