This is what friends are for…

Sometimes it takes a good friend to bring us back to ourselves.

I’ve been really quiet on my blog the past year or so and though life has got me quite busy, the silence is not because of my busyness. I haven’t been writing because I just have not been able to bring myself to do it.

BlogHer Recap: Growing your blog, kissing Piper and talking Scandal with Kerry Washington
