sorry it's been such a slow july around these fancy napkin parts. i guess it hasn't been entirely my fault, as we've been having all sorts of internet problems over the last few weeks, but the other couple weeks i would probably have to own up too and just blame summer. you know, lack of motivation and just spending 100% of my time outside in the fresh sunshine [i mean, we really only get a couple glorious months of this warmth a year, so why not soak it up right?].
i actually do have to admit that it was kinda nice not having the internet up. it forced me to shut down. to take a step back and realize that their are other ways to connect with friends and well, just life in general. and if you know me, you probably know that i may be the world's worst blogger as i completely do not know how to work my cell [or do we call them smartphone's now? i'm so behind on the tech lingo] and all the gadgets that go along with that. so i really shut down this past week. quiet? yes. relaxing? yes. refreshing? yes. but missed you guys? yes, absolutely!
so anyway, sorry friends. even though it was a nice mini-break, i am happy to report that we are up and running again! yay! and i have a boat load of posts lined up for ya. guess all it took was the ability of not having the internet at my disposal to really know what i was missing. and darn it you guys, i really did miss our little internet community.
