Another Little Note

um, it appears that the little hiatus extended through September . . . and October . . . yep, be back soon. Don't even worry about it.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Explanatory/Apologetic Note

So one of the good things about life is that it is full of wonderful and exciting things to keep us busy. The downside is, this blog slipped out of my priority list for a little while. No worries though, daily posts will be back soon. I just think it would be a good idea for me to take some time off for a little while every now and again. From now on (who knows how long this'll be going anyway, right?) August will be skipped. It's not that there's nothing good in August, it's just that it'll give me a chance to catch up. After all, August tends to be a ridiculously busy month with school starting, etc. So don't worry your pretty little minds, daily wonderful things are heading back in September.
Keep on smiling, ya hear?
