This is a personal note to say that I have not abandoned my blog. Nor have I abandoned reading. In fact I read three wonderful children's books yesterday to a very attentive two-and-a-half-year-old. However, life gets chaotic at times and our lovable hobbies--like reading--fall by the wayside. I am dedicated to returning to my reading routine this week though, so you'll be hearing from me again very soon!
