Where to begin?

It has been such a long time since I have posted anything, blogger went and changed on me! It's all new and they didn't even check with me first! Sheesh! For one, I'm a spell check junkie and I can't find the flippin' spell check! Help!

Thank you to all my bloggy friends who have emailed to check on me. You guys are awesome! I've decided it's time to claw my way out of my hole and find my way back to the bloggy world. There have been so many things along the way that I have wanted to share, but the thought of back-tracking, is not going to happen. I will start fresh from this point forward.

As is so common in our little family, things have changed again. LK feels safe at the FOB in Afghanistan and we have decided that he will continue to work there. Our plans to spend 7 weeks with him in South Carolina have changed. The new plan: we are meeting in Orlando at Disney World to spend 5 wonderful, fun-filled days. After Disney, we fly back to Portland and will have a week and a half together before he deploys again. Unfortunately, my plans to meet up with some bloggy friends near Greenville just can't happen. :(

For now, we are very much looking forward to seeing each other at Disney on December 4th. Disney twice in one year! How cool is that?!

And now I will leave you with a few photos of our beautiful Princess.

Hi Frau! It's good to "see" you again. =)

Welcome back to blogland SL although it's nice to catch up on facebook too!

Do you mind if I ask you which Blogger template you switched to? The photos are so nice and big! I have been wanting to change mine up a bit to make the photos bigger but all of this computer stuff makes my head spin.

I hope you all have a great time at Disney!

Hi Aliceson! I switched to Minima Stretch. Now if I was better, I'd be able to figure out how to do a cool header and maybe a watermark background. How do you do that?

Aliceson said...

Thanks! I just switched mine but I still have a few bugs to work out. My header didn't move from minima to minima stretch as well as I would have liked but I did some google searching and came up with something acceptable for now.

The watermark background I made in photoshop elements and put it on each photo. Kind of tedious but it works. I'm sure there's a better way but heck if I know what it is.

Missed you! Glad you're back. Love this series of Princess, she is such a doll. Sorry about LK being so far away and in such a scary place. Sending positive energy and light your way and his.


Shady Lady said...

Zayna, yes...I'm back! I love that tree and bee picture, too. We've been learning about bees (we're kind of stuck on it right now) which inspired the drawing.

Lisa, it's good to be back. Thank you for the positive energy and light. It is always appreciated. :)
