Thanks for all of the wonderful love I got last month from the Secret is in the Sauce ladies! I wanted to post a quick update on what's been going on in my world and why there has been a lack of frequent posts.
Earlier this Spring, my husbands unit got his deployment orders to Iraq, 10 months sooner than originally planned. At the time, I was very close to finishing up my degree from UW and my daughter was finishing 3rd grade. Since thing, I've graduated and my daughter started summer vacation... and of course, I've been spending as much time as I possibly can with my soldier. We took a vacation to Las Vegas (where of course I visited Kari at Retro Bakery), have gone to a bunch of movies, dinners out, day trips to Seattle, and most recently a weekend at the Gorge for the Dave Matthews Band concert. Next week, my husband will board a plane to begin his journey to Iraq, his 2nd tour there in 3 years. I'm dreading the day he leaves and until then, I plan to spend as much time as I possibly can by his side.
So, this is why I haven't been posting very much and why I don't know if I will be posting much again soon. I anticipate that after he leaves and the initial shock has lessened, I will feel like baking again. So... until then, thank you for your continued loyalty and support.
