It's been a while, how are ya?

{whoooosh} that's the sound of be blowing the dust off of this blog. My oh my, it's been a while. So here's what happened, in a nutshell;

~I threw a birthday party for my sweet baby girl. It was a lot of work, there were 40+ people, Ramona was perfect and sweet and covered in her Brown Bear, Brown Bear cake.

~My cousin Liz came to visit!

~We had some other visitors, and before you I knew it, it was time to go home again



~Merry Christmas!

~In January, near the end of our trip, I started to see some things online that were making me a little nervous about heading back. But, not wanting to be the nervous nelly who was just being paranoid, we left on schedule and arrived in Cairo on January 24th. Yeah.

~Now, another time I will detail the whole experience for you, I promise. The truth is, I'm still toying with the idea of trying to publish something. One way or another, you'll hear about it.

~So we were back for 2 weeks, and then on a plane(s) again heading home. We spent 2 weeks there. And made the best of our time. Happy that Ramona got one more dose of grandparent love...

~Getting back and getting settled was not for the faint of heart. It took a couple of months for things to truly go back to normal. We took a fun trip to the sea with some good friends. They were the friends we were holed up with during the revolution, so there was something cathartic about being together again under much sweeter circumstances.

~Now that we're in a bit of a routine, we're rolling into summer and ready for action. We're going to Cyprus in a few weeks, and have some Red Sea trips planned for later in the summer. This will be the first time we're spending the summer here and not going home. Yikes. But, Ramona and I will be back in the fall for 2 months so I can watch some dear friends get hitched. FALL! I'll be home for the Fall!

~Of course there have been numerous sewing projects and recipes, I'll do my best to recap those soon...
