Do people still blog?
I don’t know. I don’t know if anyone is still out there. Maybe this post will show up in someone’s random blogfeed and they’ll wonder why they never deleted this site from their reader because let’s face it, nothing has happened in this little corner of the web in *ahem* 2 years? More?
IF you’re still here, and IF you’re still reading and IF you (anyone) cares to know:
I AM STILL ALIVE
Also, big things have happened in my life. HUGE things.
And one of them was actually pretty tiny.
So, I’m thinking about blogging again. Is there anyone out there that would still want to read about my life? Its a different life than it used to be. But it’s still pretty close to magic.
Oh Hi Blog Readers,
If any of you are still out there that is. Maybe you’ve noticed that I’ve um, kind of stopped blogging. Some of you have even been sweet enough to contact me to ask if I’m ok.
I’m ok. Actually, I’m very good. So, no worries.
But, I think I sort of owe the internet an explanation. I mean, who starts a blog and then posts on it religiously every single day for months and months and puts in hours and hours of work on it and then one day out of the blue for no apparent reason just stops with no explanation and no goodbye? Seriously? WHO DOES THAT??
Me. I do that.
I’m sorry, ya’ll.
I guess life just kind of got in the way of blogging. Other things took priority in my life. And then, yanno, I kind of ran out of clothes in my closets (and my sisters’). And I couldn’t afford to just go out and buy a lot more. And then my computer died. And I couldn’t afford to buy another one of those either. And then, you know, it was summertime and life was busy and good…
And that’s it. I hope to blog again one day. Maybe soon. Stay tuned if you’d like. I hope you do. Because when I come back to this space (and let’s be honest, I’ll be back. I can’t stop. It’s like chocolate and coffee, I’ll never quit consuming them and I’ll never really quit blogging) I hope you’re here. Because I’d like to share life with you all again.
I’ll see you all soon…

No, autumn has not come early to Wisconsin. In fact, it’s still very much summer here. But, we’re in a drought. The worst drought in over 50 years, which means the grass is not greener anywhere and it doesn’t matter which side of the fence you’re standing on.

-Surprise! I’m getting off work 2.5 hours early today! What am I going to do with this afternoon?
-Everyone’s telling sad stories today at the shop. Dealing with grief on a regular basis sometimes brings this on. Not always a happy job.

-Just trying to stuff all the groceries into my refrigerator
-Sometimes I don’t know what to make for dinner before I make it or while I’m making it. Then I make it and I still don’t know what it is.
-Yikes. Half a tree is in my driveway from the storm last night.
-We lose 1/2 a tree and other big tree branches, but the duct-taped-together volleyball net survives the storm.

I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. I’m not made out of money, people. Lack of funds sometimes makes style blogging a bit of a challenge. But, then again, they say Necessity if the mother of invention. I have to agree, although in this case necessity is more the mother of good borrowing skills. I’m pretty sure you’ve all seen everything in my closet at least once or twice and I’ve already branched out into my sisters closets. This dress belongs to Stephanie and I found it way in the back of her closet. She hadn’t worn it in a while so I
stole borrowed it from her. In the dead of night, while she was sleeping peacefully, never knowing that I was sneaking around in her closet with a flashlight. BWAHAHA! Ok, no, everything I just said is untrue. Actually, she was standing right there when I found the dress, asked if I could borrow it, she said yes I could, she remembered how cute it was and plans to wear it tomorrow. So, style blogging has another fun side effect: helping other people find treasures in their own closets! Who knew, right?

First, allow me to apologize for the title of this blog post. I realize it’s kind of… corny. Coming up with blog post titles that are witty, fun, engaging, poetic and perfectly concise is difficult. You try it sometime. And if you come up with anything fantastic let me know, ok?
Also, I don’t know what my hair is doing here. Except for, obviously, NOT what it is supposed to be doing.
