So... it's been a while. And that's OK!

I'm back!
Well, that kind of makes it sound like I've been off traveling the globe on some grand adventure for many months, but in reality, life in general has been a grand adventure that hasn't left much time for the old blog lately.

Here's a quick recap of what we've been up to:
In March, we went to New York City, celebrated my 27th birthday, bought a house, and moved everything to the new house in about 24 hours. Needless to say, we've been busy.

Jackie and I met Ann Curry on the TODAY Show plaza!
At the Statue of Liberty!
My computer also died during the first part of April and was sent off for the Apple geniuses to tinker with. Turns out the logic board was fried, so they replaced it, the graphics card, the LCD screen, and my bad battery! Finally got it back two weeks later.  Basically, it's a new computer (except for the hard drive, which they said was OK).

We also had a great weekend of Kettle Korn at the Bloomin' Festival in Cullman.

My semester at UM also wrapped up, and I attended my first graduation as a teacher. I don't think it has sunk in that some of the familiar faces in our building won't be back in the fall. Guess that's just something I'll have to get used to as a teacher...
Me and my Newscast Production class. Great group of students!
Lots has happened with us lately, and I promise to sit and catch up on the blog sometime soon. I just wanted to pop in now to say hello (and alleviate any fears that I may have fallen off the face of the earth).

And I've resolved that I'm not going to apologize for being a bad blogger anymore. I'll blog when I blog, and that's OK.
