It's been over four months since I last blogged ~ if anyone out there is still checking for a new post, I'm truly a lucky girl.
Long story short, by way of an explanation for the extended absence, someone I love confessed they were an alcoholic. Talk about a lose-your-balance moment.
Since last summer, I've been trying to help.
Unfortunately, I'm learning how difficult that is to actually do....
Thank God for friends (and flowers:)

Since it's still January (just barely) and this is the traditional month for new beginnings, I mean more than ever before that I'm oh so ready for a fresh start.
There is no way to return to the person I was before this experience.
My heart and soul are forever changed.
But I can move forward (or at least try), which means getting back to the things that bring me bliss.
The garden is at the top of that list.
Sharing photos of it with you also ranks up there. I'm going to do my utmost to blog more consistently. It might only be once a week, I'll have to see how it goes as I get my footing again, but from the bottom of my heart, MANY thanks for sticking with me. xxoo
