Blog Hiatus

   To anyone who cares about reading my blog, I suggest you read this post so you know what's going on.

   First off, the last giveaway I held:  Too Faced Goodie Bag Giveaway.  I picked a winner and she responded almost two weeks ago now.  Congratulations to Lisa for winning and many thanks for her being such a good sport about my uncontrollable delay in getting her prizes sent out.  I finally got a chance to update the giveaway post so the widget displays who won, if you want to check it out.

   Some of you may have guessed that something happened to keep me away from the web.  In the case of those who bought or won anything from me, I did at least send off a quick message saying that there was an emergency.  (Huge thanks to friends and family that are doing what they can to help and all of their prayers.  Without those I think we'd be much worse off.)  I have had several family members and family-to-be in and out of the hospital this month.  Last week a severe viral illness hit and I'm still dealing with how that effected my fiancĂ© and I.  Getting on the computer was one of the last things I did, unless it was to research health care.  Through all of this, we have still had to prepare for our wedding, and try to move into our new house.  Then I broke my toe which further adds to my frustrations.

   That's right, I'm getting married next month..!  Despite my current exhaustion and the depression that comes from having to skip certain things planned for the wedding I'm just plain happy to know that I'll be getting married to the perfect guy for me, and we can hopefully put all these hardships behind us and get to focus on being a happy couple.  To that end, I'll be taking a blogging break.

   I plan to go on hiatus for the entire month of May. 

   This may end up changing to be either shorter or longer but I doubt I'll take off less than May.  We deserve it as a couple, my spiritual routine needs it, evidently my mental and physical health needs it, I'll have a new house to settle into and eventually have to get back to my secular work, as well.  Blogging just doesn't fit into the picture at all.   Not to say that I'll be completely disappearing.  Look for small updates from me through Twitter and Instagram.  I'll reply to comments when I can and keep up with my blog sales, of course.

   Thanks for your readership and understanding.
