I’m back!

After a several month hiatus, I am back to regular blogging.  I made the decision for several reasons:

  1. When I am not blogging, I don’t seem to write as much, as counter-intuitive as that sounds.
  2. Three consecutive years of blogging became a habit that I have missed over the last couple of months.
  3. I missed you all, and besides, a lot has happened and continues to happen.

So, like Lance Armstrong at the Tour de France, or Brett Favre in football, I am coming out of self-imposed blog retirement to enlighten you all once again.  Stay-tuned for the same old random musings you grew to love in the past (or at least, you grew to complain about when they weren’t around).

And for those who haven’t been paying attention, here is a 60 second summary of the last 15 months of my life:

  1. Got engaged
  2. Moved in together
  3. Got married
  4. Had a baby
  5. Bought a house

Not bad for 15 months.  And since the last two items happened in the last 30 days, you can better understand why I haven’t been blogging as much as I used to.  But that is about to change.
