New Year, New Start!

 

Sadly, 2011 has been nothing short of an absolutely miserable year!  Unfortunately, Vanessa and I have both struggled with things in our personal lives (ranging from unemployment and financial difficulties, to family illness and deaths, health scares, and even a miscarriage) that made it impossible to focus on our blogging lives :( 

The good news is that hopefully all that is in the past and we can start fresh in 2012!  Woot!

We want to extend a special THANK YOU to all the new friends we've made (thanks in no small part to Twitter) and who've supported us with their patience, kind words, encouragements, laughs and long-distance hugs.  All these things helped more than you guys can know!

We miss books.  We miss blogging.  We miss you guys!

We're going to try *really* hard to get back into the groove of blogging regularly.  We're both a bit rusty to say the least so it might take a bit to get back into the full-swing of things but ...

WE ARE BACK!

  19. Welcome back! :D I'm sorry that 2011 was such a horrible year for both of you (I can relate; mine wasn't the greatest either, personal life wise). But like they say, tomorrow is a new day--and this is a new year, so let us all hope it becomes one of the best ones yet for us! :D

    Enjoy!
