I took an unannounced, unplanned, and unexpected break. Please forgive me!
The holidays caught me a little off-guard, then as I was getting back into my swing, another holiday and a 4th birthday took me back.

But then earlier this week, my lovely husband sent me an email reminding me of why I started this blog and what it means to me. It's my slice of distraction, my creative outlet, and my opportunity to share a piece of me with you.
So here I am, and here's some of what you can expect from me this month...

I then took on the task of refinishing it, and documented the process to share with all of you. I'll be posting a multi-part series on the refinishing process. Here's what I started with:

Thanks again for your immense patience and support, and I promise to give a warning if I'm ever going to take an extended hiatus again! :)
