Trying to get back

Since the pandemic started, I’ve noticed that I haven’t blogged as frequently. And since my husband passed away two months ago, I really haven’t felt like blogging at all. But I’m trying to get back because blogging has been a creative outlet for me for several years now, and I don’t want to let it…

Away for the holidays

The holidays and other matters have kept me away from blogging for a while, but I will return soon. I haven’t even been taking photographs, but I did get a nice one early one morning about two weeks ago… Happy New Year, everyone!
