Explanations, Good Things and Giveaways


     So as many of you may have noticed I haven't updated my blog in a little bit. I feel as though I owe you all an explanation and if you are still with me at the end of this explanation there is also a giveaway at the bottom. 
      I have been MIA now for a few weeks due to many reasons. #1 I am going threw an unexpected divorce which has brought about certain life changes that has hindered my extra time. #2 I had to move. I moved residences from a house to an apartment recently and that took a bit of time and it also took a little bit for my internet to be installed. Now that it has I am ready to start blogging again. #3 I went through a questionable period, where I wasn't sure I was going to continue with the blog. But I have decided I am going to keep going with the blog. I will be instituting a few changes but nothing big. I love all my followers and couldn't imagine not blogging and hearing your feedback.

On to other things...
Many of you have been asking about the 2000 follower giveaway. There was a minor hold up due to people not responding to the email sent in order to get their mailing address... I ended up picking 11 names before I heard anything back... with out further ado... The winner is!!!

I was crying the tears out of me at the point of dehydration some moments before I turned on the computer and came for the Internet to try and get away from the "bad" real world for a while xD
    So, cheer up, girl!
    And hope you like my dog (not really mine, but you'll get it when u see it lol)

  171. I am so glad you decided to keep the blog, it must be a positive for you to have something that you love and are good at. When you get down you can look to having 2550 followers that care about you!! And I know it's corny but there is truth in the saying when one door shuts, another opens.
