Like Riding A Bike

As you may have noticed, it's been over a year since I posted last. What's even funnier is that my last post was all about Facebook and it's hypnotizing power that pulls you in. Yes, it certainly has bewitched me the last year...make that two years (yikes!). I'm happy to report that in the meantime I have successfully developed a "healthy" relationship with Facebook and am ready to enter the "blogosphere" again. :)

You may have also noticed the "face lift" my blog has received. Books! I'm not really known for my love of books. Those who know me well can vouch for that....Allison, BriAnne, Lyd, Nat, etc. In fact, in the 9th grade I was grounded for an entire month because it took me that long to read Little Women. Fortunately, I have since overcome my A.D.D. toward books and have become, what I like to call, a "born-again reader". I still don't read as often as I like, but I now consider reading a leisurely pleasure instead of cruel and unusual punishment :) Hence, my choice of decor is to hopefully encourage me to keep reading! (Not to mention it makes me look smarter and feel more intelligenty)

AND, since I have such a "serious" and grown up blog template I thought I should have a "serious" picture....serious people don't smile. On the other hand, I don't want to seem like a bore, so I went with sunshiney-golden-yellow for my blog title background. Now then, don't you feel warm and fuzzy all over?

Sigh. It feels good to be back....like riding a bike.

You're back to blogger! Yay! And with such a striking photo :)

P.S. A month to read Little Women?? C'mon Shann. Although .... I'll admit the reason I zoomed through it was because I was so in love with Laurie. What a stud, huh?

I knew you could figure it out Shanna. Nothing like a little trial and error to figure out old passwords and posting practices. Looks great! Love the new look! :)

I, for one, am SO glad you are back! Nothing like a little bit of Shanna to brighten my day! Love you girl and I love the new look of the blog. :)

I've missed you so - even if I'm just now seeing this post. I'm SO glad to have you back (now keep it up!).

Also, I feel exactly EXACTLY the same way about reading. It took me until I was a stay-at-home mom before I enjoyed it.

Might I recommend Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. Even if you're not into sci-fi, they're too good to miss.
