So why haven't I posted in a year and a half? Four reasons:
Reason #1: I was incredibly stressed out at my old job, working way too many hours and just generally unhappy. Having to do blog posts on top of that was just adding to my stress and burning me out considering I had very little time. I ended up getting a different job, which leads me to reason #2...
Reason #2: I got a new job. I had to really sink myself into this and create a new place for myself. I worked long hours at first. About the time things settled down and I began to think about blogging again, reason #3 occurred...
Reason #3:My daughter had a baby... my first grandbaby. I do NOT feel old enough to have a grandbaby, but daughter, like myself, began young, so there you have it. And a few months, later, reason #4 happened:
Reason #4: My daughter had a second baby... a boy this time.
I can't give you proof of reasons 1 and 2, but I would be happy to brag and show pictures of reasons 3 and 4. The first is baby Vivian Leigh. She has been such a blessing. Check her out, in various stages of growth:

As you can see, the last year and a half has been extremely busy. I've been soaking up all the love and fun in being a new grandmother. My husband and I keep Vivian and now, probably, Gabriel, a great deal. So we've been having a lot of fun.
I'll post updates here with some new pictures periodically so you can see how these two sweeties are progressing. More later!
