life's an awkward journey we all have to go through, so we might as well entertain others as we do it!

There and Back Again:

Well, hello again!

I must apologize for my long absence.

My two-year hiatus was due to leaving for my mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, for 18 months, and then upon returning home, leaving for California to nanny for my aunt and uncle.

And now I'm back!

I've really missed writing and reflecting on the growing mysteries of life and so I hope to be showing up here more often.

Please feel free to hold me accountable.

You'll be hearing from me again soon!
