Considerate bloggers let you know in advance when they are going to take a break from posting. Obviously, I am not one of them! In my defense, though, I didn't plan not to blog; other things just got in the way. Lucky for me, a charming young reader by the name of Michelle Emerson let me know--ever so sweetly-- that she was disappointed that I had not updated my blog in so long. It's good to be missed. Thank you, Michelle!
