I’m Moving!

16 Apr

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had wonderful weekends!

I’m sorry I’ve been away so long – I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything new, and I truly appreciate your patience (and your concerns! It’s such a nice feeling to know that you’ve been watching out for me.)

But I’m done wallowing now, I promise.

In fact, I’ve been working on a new project for a while now, and I’m finally ready to share it with you!

Please come check out my new (online) home at:


I’m really excited about this, you guys. It was time for a change, and I think this is going to be a really, really good one. (Really, I do!) You can read all about what led to my decision on the “About” page of the new site, here.

I’ve been stretching my website-designer wings, and the new site has all kinds of cool features that I’m really proud of – you can take a tour of all the awesome-ness here. (You can even like me on Facebook! Please like me on Facebook – I really like feeling…uhhh… liked.)

I’ve had such a wonderful time here over the past year, and I’m truly grateful to all of you for coming along for the ride. I hope that you’ll join me over at Words Become Superfluous for another, even better year!

Love, Amber


Countdown to Christmas: Day 2

23 Dec

Good morning! Happy Christmas-Eve-Eve!

Yes, that’s a real event that’s marked on the calendar at my house. Come on now, and be honest – are you surprised? No, I didn’t think you would be. We’ve gotten to know each other pretty well during this countdown, haven’t we?

I’d like to pause for a moment here and say how proud I am that I’ve only used one exclamation mark so far in this post; after all, tonight is Christmas-Eve-Eve, people!!!!!!!

(Oh, darn.)

I only have to put in a half day of work today, and then it’s off to the cottage that I told you about earlier in the week! I can’t wait!

I wanted to show you the view that I have to look forward to, in the hopes that you’ll understand and forgive the above exclamation-mark-extravaganza:

Isn’t that beautiful?! Credit for the photo goes to my little sis, as usual.

Credit for the view goes to whomever you believe to be responsible for those types of things! I don’t want to name names (that’s not really what this blog is about) so I’ll just say that today, my heart is full of gratitude and love for the wonderful people and places in my little corner of the universe, and for the wonderful forces, whatever or whomever they may be, that have arranged for me to live there.

Happy Christmas Eve-Eve everyone!
