For those of you who don’t know, I’m a professor by day (and night and weekends and holidays and….). It pays the bills and I love what I do, but this semester I experienced a great deal of difficulty finding balance in life. Work was all consuming and I allowed it to take over every aspect of my life. Has that ever happened to you? I’m still processing why I allowed that to happen – what benefit it provided. Did I escape into work to try to deal with the loss of a beloved family member this year? Was I trying to ensure that I left an indelible mark on the world as I influenced young minds? Whatever the reason, I realize how much I missed blogging and quilting and living at Darlington. I’m back and this time I hope to find that delicate balance between life, work and love. Speaking of love….look who came to live with us at Darlington since I last spoke with you!
My husband named him Jelly Bean and he is 100% boy. He is wide open 24/7! Amazing how much life a little bundle like Jelly Bean can infuse into a heart!
Stick around….I have several fun things to share with you in the weeks ahead!
