i've returned from a nice little break.

It's been a little over a week since I decided to take a small break from the world of blogging and social networking. I must say, it was a breath of fresh air.

During this short hiatus I:
  • baked pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
  • read one and a half books.
  • cooked some meals in batches and froze some for later (loving this method, by the way.)
  • wrote letters to friends.
  • had long phone conversations with my parents.
  • went to a bonfire and roasted marshmallows.
  • rested lots and lots (I've been sick for the majority of the past couple of weeks...Vitamin C and my pillow have been my best friends.)
  • went on a pumpkin patch adventure with husband.
  • enjoyed surprise homemade smoothies (thanks to him.)
  • ate some halloween candy (here's to hoping it's not all gone before tomorrow!)
  • collaborated with husband on a project we're working on (which we will be able to unveil soon!)

It's been a good break, and I'm now going to slowly ease back into the online world. But this little break of mine has definitely helped me reevaluate my priorities and I'm aiming for much better balance in my life.

I'm not going to:
  • feel the need to update my blog every single day
  • feel like I have to read everything in my Google Reader
  • compare myself to others
  • leave Facebook open in my browser to distract me during the day
  • feel like a loser when I don't have anything exciting to Twitter about :)
But I am going to:
  • continue documenting our adventures through photographs and this little blog
  • find inspiration in others and in turn, strive to inspire
  • stay connected with what's going on in my friends lives
  • love life with everything I've got :)
Enough about me. How are you all doing? I must say, I feel a little disconnected from everyone since I haven't been reading people's blog posts or statuses. I trust that no one got engaged or had a baby while I've been m.i.a. And if you did, you'd better let me know!

Happy Friday! :)


  1. i am personally thrilled to have you back!
    we missed you :)

    1. IEEE Project Domain management in software engineering is distinct from traditional project deveopment in that software projects have a unique lifecycle process that requires multiple rounds of testing, updating, and faculty feedback. A IEEE Domain project Final Year Projects for CSE system development life cycle is essentially a phased project model that defines the organizational constraints of a large-scale systems project. The methods used in a IEEE DOmain Project systems development life cycle strategy Project Centers in India provide clearly defined phases of work to plan, design, test, deploy, and maintain information systems.

      This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript. JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript was used for little more than mouse hover animations and little calculations to make static websites feel more interactive. Let’s assume 90% of all websites using JavaScript use it in a trivial way. That still leaves 150 million substantial JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript applications.

  2. FYI, you always have cool things to say on your blog/facebook/ etc! always very inspiring to me. Miss you friend.

  3. Paul Morgan and Courtney got engaged!
