Just A Quick Hello

I wanted to stop in for a quick hello. I know I have been away for awhile, but great things are taking place behind the scenes - true story!  I had no idea putting together my own Photography website would take so long or figuring out how to re-brand my blog.  Pinterest has been a gem in the process.  When I return, however, I want to be more authentic.  More real, just for you. Fewer posts, better content. More honesty, and hopefully inspiration! Truth is, I was beginning to struggle with balancing a busy full time job, relationships, activities (I love them), exercise and quiet faith time. 

And apologies in advance for being the worst email responder ever - I had a few hundred emails in my inbox and was pretending they were invisible. But as Lara Casey says, they are decisions waiting to be made. I.will.respond. :) 

In the mean time I am still on Facebook and Twitter

Oh yes, and that nifty inspiration board up there is where things are heading for The FailteHouse. What do you think? 


And I can not forget to mentioned the Blog Hop.  I signed up to be a co-host over 6 months ago, and just received an email reminding me it was today. Hooray! I would like to welcome all new visitors and kindly let you know - we are under construction over here :)  But don't run away, things are looking up!

Ok, so let's get to the party, shall we?
RULES are simple:
1. Follow your host via GFC

3. Link up below using your main blog url not a specific post.

and if you want to leave them a comment, I'm sure they'd appreciate that as well.

The inspiration board looks great! I already loved the gold polka dots when I saw them on one of your Pinterest boards a couple days ago.
And about the email situation...I'm pretty sure I still owe YOU one. So no worries, you are not the only one who sometimes ignores her inbox ;-)
