It's great to back online! Taking a break from all things computer has its definite advantages, and it was nice to spend three weeks tooling around France, completely unplugged. But I missed all my cyber buddies SO much!
Yesterday, during breaks from unpacking, I read through all your wonderful comments on the posts during my absence. You are all so warm, funny, and truly awesome! Thanks for your kind words and friendly messages. You rock!!
As you can imagine, I'm in the process of getting caught up. I have mountains of laundry to wash, gifts to distribute, phone calls to make, 469 unread emails to sift through -- and jet lag to deal with. I'm also uploading a full memory card of photos -- some of which are important to the Vive la France contest which ended yesterday.
It turns out I'll need a couple extra days to determine the winner of the contest. Tomorrow, I'll explain the prize package -- it's a good one!! And on Friday, I will announce the winner. Remember, each post you commented on between 6/17 and 7/12 earns you one entry. Thanks to all of you who entered, and extra thanks to you who commented on multiple posts. You really helped me feel connected, even when I was far away!
I hope you are having a fantastic day! I'm looking forward to reading your blogs in the coming days!!
