Could you ever forgive me for leaving you for so long? Okay, good.
I'm sure you are all wondering the reasoning behind my leaving. Well I have two words for you: Summer's End. I've dreaded saying it for the past month, but the day is finally upon us. School for my family is starting on Monday, which means no more staying up late designing your blog then redesigning it two days later (did any of you notice those little changes? probably not.) No more staying up until 1 and waking at 10. No more lazy days spent on pinterest and pastor's girl's ponderings (I legit spent a whole day just reading carlotta's old posts). No more days spent just writing forever and ever.
Apart from bracing myself for the dreaded starting of school, I've been extremely busy. I'll start from where I left off. On sunday after coming home from church, we watched the beginning of the fourth Harry Potter since my younger sister had just finished the book. The following hours of that afternoon were spent at the new family at church's house eating sandwiches and playing outside. Monday we were at our grandparents' house for most of the day. On tuesday we were at our grandparent's yet again while Jordan cleaned the gutters. The moment we returned home I practiced my flute before rushing off to my lesson. Moments after my lesson was finished we raced off to Kalona, where we had fiddle group practice. Then comes yesterday; Wednesday. The entire day was spent at the Iowa State Fair where we performed with our fiddle group and walked around far too much for our own good and laughed even more. Now I'm sure you understand why I never had a chance to post.
During my moment of posting shortage, however, I did manage to reach 245 followers and pull together a lovely new design. Actually, I had installed another one before this, with a normal non-sidebar header. I tried to force myself not to follow everyone else (now olivia, carlotta, and hannah have sidebar headers too), but in the end, I already loved them too much to go back. Hopefully you like it just as much as I do.
I Promise a real post soon.
