I have received a few comments about my absence in this space over the past couple of months. The truth is, if you look back over the history of this blog, I tend to get much quieter in the winter.
This marked my 7th New England winter, and over the years I've actually come to really appreciate and enjoy the quiet that January and February brings after a whirlwind holiday season. The only problem with this winter is that I haven't really been able to hibernate the cold months away like I normally do (although I did spend a good portion of February watching all four seasons of Parenthood).
First of all, we put our house back on the market (you may remember that we tried to sell our house two years ago without success) at the end of January and it sold in one day. This was great news, but it has meant that we've been scrambling to find a short-term rental to move into while also searching for a new home to buy (thankfully we just signed contracts for a place we're really excited about last week). And on top of that, we've been juggling a couple of other pretty major things that have taken up a lot of our attention as well. It's mostly all good, but it's meant that I've been a bit distracted, to say the least.
But spring is officially here now, and for the first time in a long time, I finally feel ready to come and revisit this old blog of mine. Things are about to get pretty crazy for a while (moving day is just a little over a week away), but hopefully I'll be here a little more often from here on out.
