Now and Then

You’re possibly wondering where I’ve been for the last week or so….and honestly, so am I! I’d love to give you a great explanation but to be honest I’ve just been absurdly busy and still haven’t shaken my blogging/reading slump.  BUT I loved reading the Now and Then feature on Celine’s blog, and so I couldn’t resist joining in.  Some of the questions were easy, some were fun, and some reminded me just how grateful I am for the changes I’ve gone through in the last five years!
