Let’s try a little stream of consciousness blogging, shall we?

I think it’s important that I write at least two blogs in February, right?

What does one even say after not blogging for nearly a month? Despite a four and a half day weekend, followed by a snow day, still silence? A week without facebook, even? I’m sorry, blog. I’ve neglected you. Please forgive … Continue reading

No, seriously, all of my blog titles are children’s board book lines.

All I can think of for titles are lines from Soren’s books, but only Louis would get it.
