A recent vacation with my family
I just wanted to take a moment to THANK YOU all for being patient with me this summer.
The past two months have been very FULL with family staying with us for a few weeks, my sister’s wedding, two extended family vacations, house guests, a three day family reunion and more. I love nothing more than being able to spend some much-needed quality time with my family, especially when you don’t get to see each other that often. It’s these moments that should be treasured and that is why this should take priority over other things in my life, like my blog. I want to be able to make memories with my family whilst we still can, as there will be a day in which we won’t be altogether anymore, and if I’m being honest, I’m dreading this day. Reasons like this are why my heart breaks for some people who aren’t able to live in the same country as their husband or wife due to them not being a permanent resident. These people are missing out on making memories with their families and it’s devastating. This happened to someone that my friend knew. Their husband lived in a different country and she was in the middle of applying for an i-130a visa that would make her spouse a permanent resident of the United States. It finally worked out for them in the end and now they are reunited and are able to make similar memories to what my family and I are making now. Families should be able to live together in peace and harmony and I’m so glad that I got to spend this time with my family over the past few months. It’s all been GOOD stuff, but it’s also meant that finding time to dedicate to the blog has been difficult. There have been days I haven’t been able to post at all, and I’ve neglected certain series like my Cha-Ching Challenge and my Saving on a Shoestring update.
But for some reason, you all just keep coming back! I just want to express my appreciation for being such faithful readers I still get the most wonderful comments and encouraging emails from you all even in the midst of the craziness.
And that just makes me happy.
Life seems to be calming down a bit now and so I hope to be able to stick to a more consistent blogging schedule. But thanks in advance for your understanding. Sometimes life is just plain full.
You guys are just plain fantastic.
