Yes, I know I have been neglecting my bloggy friends and I am sorry. I just have a LOT on my plate right now. I miss you guys too.

You see, I began blogging when I was very unhappy with where my life was headed. That and I was in a new city that did not feel like home at all. And I have met some REALLY cool people that I honestly would call bloggy friends, we'd probably be much closer if we all lived down the street from one another. With that is what I have been up to:

Being a wife Ken and I are better than ever. In the last six months we have become stronger as a couple and I am much more in love with him than I ever thought possible. We are working together on many common goals and have been very busy. Needless to say, he likes it when I'm not blogging while he is home.Plus he has been coming home early some days and we have been working in the garden or taking the pups for a walk.

The regular job: My current employer has made it VERY clear that we all better get our bums in gear and make numbers or else!!! Although Ken has been working regularly (thanks to GOD!), the housing market here is still not what it was, so my having a job is highly important.

Chasing the dream: This one.......... I am busting with excitement over!!! The full time event planning thing is currently on its way to actuality. The key is keeping the main job until I can completely make the switch. I've been busy making arrangements for the two weddings I am doing at the end of May. On top of that, I fully intend on having a reception hall / event center of my own. No clue where the cash is going to come from or how it will all come about, but I have been writing my business plan, praying and getting all my ducks in a row. It is awesome to see things unfold that all point to this dream coming to fruition.

On a side note: I had plans of buying this place, did a whole lot of research to find out who owned it since it is basically a run down building...Ah yeah, found out last Monday the guy wants $1.4 mill for it. (And since, you know, I have that kind of cash in a shoe box under my bed........LOL.) Needless to say, I had to say I am passing on the purchase at this time. So, the search for an event center is on. Other than that I have been coordinating an event at our church (The outdoor cafe) that will continue for the next three months.

I promise to try to do better about blogging.

What you mean to say is that you miss ME...and that WE would definitely be hang-out buddies if I lived closer. I read it between your lines. =0)

So glad things are falling into place for you. I also started blogging during a rough patch in my life--funny how that works, isn't it?
