I know. I’m terrible.

Leaving you all to wonder where I went for a month. With no warning. Without even a call to check in, or a text to tell you all was okay.

You’ve probably moved on, realizing my loyalty to consistent blogging is less than half-hearted. You were mostly right.

But wait! There was a perfectly good reason for my absence, I promise!

That reason was a little river trip. Just a little time on a little river in a little canyon with a little group of people. Nothing big, you know, besides floating 226 miles of the Colorado River in the GRAND CANYON!!!

16 days, 16 people, 4 rafts, 8 kayaks, literally tons of gear rigged and derigged daily. 2 full bottles of sunscreen, one turquoise long sleeve shirt worn every.single.day. No showers, no makeup, no repurposed flannel shirts.

This trip was the time of my life. Literally. Some of the best memories I’ve made in my 26 years. It was a vacation full of amazing people, the kind that make you laugh so hard it hurts…even the next day. It was the kind of scenery that literally leaves you silent, only because words do absolutely zero justice to its grandeur. It was hilarious, terrifying, peaceful and frustrating all at the same time. And I won’t hesitate to tell you that it changed my life. It did. For realz.

But I’m back! And I’m ready to get back in the swing of things. I’ve missed my blog, my sewing machine and my beagle baby.

And I have a new undertaking that I will be announcing very soon. I hope you can join me!
