We are back to blogging this week. Yay! 🎉

Whew! It has been a couple of crazy last few days. I knew changing my blog platform was going to be a big change, but, didn’t realize how stressed out it would make me.

My site was down, my email was down and we were out of town and I trying to do stuff via my phone only. Crazy stress. But, thank goodness, everything is started to get done and things are getting back to our normal blog business.

* Breaths sigh of relief *
