For anyone still out there after such a long, long time away on my part, I am so sorry for my absence! There have been quite a few changes in my life over the last couple months and time has gotten away from me.

So, what are those changes?! I finally quit my corporate job (the one I worked at for just over 4 years and have been complaining about for just under 4 years :) and am taking some time to figure out my next move professionally. I've been talking for as long as I can remember about starting my own business, so trying to figure that out a bit more. The other exciting thing is that J and I (and Frank + Boozer) decided to take advantage of my newfound freedom and are taking an extended vacation/ road trip out west. We drove out to Colorado (from Chicago) and spent some time, then traveled through Utah and now are in Boise, Idaho for a while... in a few weeks we'll make our way back to the midwest via Wyoming and South Dakota, with stops at Yellowstone and the Badlands. I know, crazy, right?!

The other thing is... I have been thinking about my little corner of the internet and what I want to do with it and am excited to make With a Flourish the best it can be. So while I've been away way too long, I am now coming back with renewed energy and bursting with ideas to share. I hope you'll stick around too!
