Total Hits!


Spring 2017 Begins!

Spring 2017 is slowly approaching & 
here I am, again, almost another two years 
since I have last posted on my blog.
(I know, shame on me!)

I am not certain why I neglect my blog for such long periods of time, 
but I will try my best this time to try to keep up.

Now, what can I update you on?

Well, my day job continues to take priority 
(along with my family of course) 
in my life, hence the hiatus from blogging.

Besides that, nothing else is really new!

What I can say is, you can look forward to more posts from me
as I will try to share more with you in the next days or so!

Until then, love you all!



TAG I'm It!

Hello everyone. I hope that you're all doing great!
I know that I've been tardy on my blog posting, however,
I thought that today, I'd do a "get to know me" post.

A New Comeback!

I have been a VERY BAD girl!
I have neglected my blog for TWO YEARS!
I know that is a very long time but I've had so many things happen to me over those past two years. For one, I am now married & I am moved halfway across the world! Sounds exciting right?
Yes I know! It all is!
Basically I've been getting to know my new country and adjusting to life in a 'foreign' land.
 I've started working, learning a new language 'German' and making new friends!
I've also been travelling quite a bit with my husband!
I've missed my blog alot since I've been gone & there have been times
when I came back & have taken a 'little peek' to see what was going on.
I guess I was lurking in the background! LOL! 
Now I finally feel ready & that everything in my life has been 'normalised' enough,
so that I can focus on my blog once again!
I really want to make this new comeback and bring to you
all that I love, adore & want to share with the world!
So here's to my new comeback!
