Is anybody here?
Oh HEY!!!! Long time no see!..
Aw nuts. You know what I mean.
Sooo, it turns out that when you tell yourself: "Self, we seem to have a lot on our plate as of late. I think we should take ourselves a little hiatus, what say you about that?"
And your self replies: "Why yes, self, that sounds like a FINE idea..."
...Perhaps, be sure to discuss the full terms of the aforementioned hiatus with your self as to ensure that said hiatus does not end up stretching out over the course of an ENTIRE YEAR!!!
Holy buckets people, it has been a while and OH the things that have happened during the last
Most notably, the growth of our family by one tiny adorable Little Man...
...who's actually not so "little" anymore!
Now that the Little Man has a slightly more reliable napping schedule, and the Little Women have started back up at school...
...I intend on stretching my wings and dipping my toes once again into the waters of regularly scheduled metal-smithing sessions and interwebular communications VERY soon :)
So, I said to myself, "Self! It's good to be back!"
And I couldn't help but agree.
