MIA: Vacation, sick family, and another chapter down in saying goodbye

I’ve been MIA from the blog for the past week. Feels weird!  Life has been busy and crazy, as I know you can ALL relate to. After our vacation to San Diego (more on that later!), we got sick. Being a family of 6 and most of us sick is not fun, especially when mommy […]
