Wow--it's been quite some time since I posted...and I hate posting without a photograph, but I really wanted ya'll to know why I have been MIA this week. My studio was closed until Jan. 5 so that I could spend some time with my family over the holidays, but then on Monday Jan. 5, we found out that Steve needed emergency surgery. It isn't for anything serious, but it was urgent and painful.

He had the surgery on Tuesday morning (thank goodness), but his recovery has been slow and very painful. He is spending a lot of time in bed and cannot drive or lift our toddler. That pretty much leaves me in charge of the children unless our babysitter is here! And with a toddler who has recently acquired the super-human ability to find markers, pens, pencils, etc. anywhere in the room and scribble [create beautiful art] all over our furniture and house, just keeping an eye on the kids is quite the task! So I guess I'm not really MIA in the traditional sense (Missing In Action)...I'm more of a MOM-IN-ACTION right now. I know that many of you reading this right now know EXACTLY what I mean! I have a new appreciation for all of you single parents or parents with spouses who travel a lot. Wow.

I am hopeful that he'll be doing better this week, but will continue to be hit and miss this week as well as I care for him and our children. Please feel free to give me a call or send me an email--I'll get to you as soon as I can, it just may be after everyone is tucked in their beds and I have a minute to breathe!

Thank you to all of my clients [the best in the world] for your well-wishes and prayers. I appreciate all of you and those who are patiently waiting for me as well. I am in awe of the kindness out there!

On another note--my baby is turning 6 this week. Can you believe it?!?

Hey Melanie! I saw you on ILP and had to drop by to say hello! Sounds like you've had a rough time. Hope everything is starting to smooth over. If I'm ever in your area I'd love to get together and chat business with you! It was so great meeting you at the workshop.
