Where have I been?!

Hi Guys!

I just wanted to give a quick update on me and let you know that I am sorry I have been a bad blogger the last couple of weeks! I can't believe I haven't posted in almost two weeks, where has the time gone?!

My family has been very busy with fall fun and travel as well as busy times at my job and finally getting my photography business off the ground! It's a very very exciting time in my life right now so I have been struggling with balancing my time equally and still trying to have a home life.

Rest assured, I will be back! I have a FABULE$$ giveaway from MyBlogSpark coming your way in the next few days as well as a few other posts that I have up my sleeve. While I am not posting as often as I was before I will hopefully be posting some worthwhile reads and amazing bargains in the future.

Please keep me on your readers and continue to come visit my site often!
