If you visit the blog every Sunday, then you may have noticed that I was missing last week (let’s face it – most of this week and last). We’ll call it a bit of an unplanned blogcation. I’m going to explain part of my absence below (the rest of the story will be coming later), but I’m not going to apologize for it. Sometimes life gets in the way and as a blogger, it’s okay to take a break.

There’s a lot going on in life that was slightly unplanned and it’s had me distracted lately. One of those big things is that we finally got dates for our big move across the country and we’re moving July 6! Yes, that’s less than two weeks away! Due to the short, sudden notice, life has been really busy and hectic as we get everything in order for the move. This is one of the biggest causes of my absence lately.

It’s official – we’re moving from California to Michigan this time. My husband will be at a station this time, which means no more extended deployments. We’ll still have nights apart due to his schedule, but it shouldn’t be months filled with nights apart. It’s something that we’ve been looking forward to for a long time.

Next week will be the halfway point of Bloggy Brunch for 2016, so I’ll be featuring quite a few of my favorite posts that have linked up this year. (52 weeks in a year and next week is #26) So, make sure you link up your favorite post below in order to have a chance to be featured!
