I’m alive. I swear. And I apologize for my hiatus. I thought that doing a fun sponsor spot would help kick my butt in gear for keeping up with content. But apparently life decided to get in the way in the form of working a lot of night events, joining a marketing committee, joining a gym, and trying to be healthy. And when two days of not blogging turned into five, turned into a week, turned into two weeks… well, I just started lacking motivation and generally fearing my blog. Weird, right?
But then my family found my page and that turned into poking and prodding for more content. (Side note: I sheepishly withheld the fact that I was writing a blog from my family. Why? I don’t really know. Mostly felt a little embarrassed. But it turns out that they really like it! Yay! Hi family! They subscribe now – how cute!)
They found out about my little corner of the internet through my younger sister’s blog. She just left the US about a week ago to spend a year teaching English in France. She asked me to update her travel journal/blog template, so I did. You can see her banner image I designed below. I’m so excited for my sis – she’s moving into her new French apartment this weekend and visiting the ocean with her French boyfriend! Sounds like she’s settling in well! Bonjour, Sissy!
Well, despite the regular time commitments of life, I HAVE been finding some pretty great thrifty deals! My local Goodwill has been OUT OF CONTROL with good finds! I’ll be sure to post more about those in the coming days (I promise)! I’ve also had a chance to hang up more pictures and art in our new place. It’s looking so cute and oh-so-kitschy: just the way I like it!
Anyway, I’ll do my best to stay on track from here on out. More updates, more thrifty good deals, recipes, and all around more Meg (and Leo, who says hi).
Thanks for sticking with me!
And hi to all of my new readers!
*Also, regarding my picture. Don’t worry, I DO have all of my fingers. I just don’t know how to pose. My boyfriend brought home a fancy camera from work, so we had a little photoshoot. That’s all!
