Hi, friends!



You guys! HELLO! I've missed your beautiful faces!

After much debate and swallowing of pride, I've decided to step back into blogging. For reals.

When I stepped away, I felt happy about it. Like, I knew in my heart of hearts it was the right decision and I still believe that. I don't regret stepping away at ALL. It allowed me to detox and shed any residual feelings of guilt or whatever that I was stupidly hanging on to.

But then I was like...am I missing blogging? (Yes)
Am I missing chatting with awesome people about books? (Yes)
Do I feel disconnected from the community and does that suck? (Yes)
But I said I was done. Will I feel stupid for coming back after that? (Yes)
Do I care about feeling stupid? (No)

So here I am! It's like a Christmas present to myself to get back into blogging. How dorky is that? Whatevs. You know me well enough by now to know I don't give any cares about my dork status.

I've established some new rules for myself to help keep things light and fresh and fun so I don't follow the same path to burn out. I also got a brand new and BEAUTIFUL design from the talented Lori at Imagination Designs to start myself on the right track! 

I'm so very excited to be back amongst the glorious ranks of book bloggers!

Can we do a little happy dance together, please? I'll get us started.




Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  6. I am totally happy dancing right now (seriously, if you had a webcam trained on me, it would catch me bouncing and twirling). While I totally knew that your decision to step away from blogging was right for you, I felt really sad to hear it. So it makes my heart oh so happy that you're back! You are definitely still one of my favorites EVER <333 Cannot wait for more reading adventures and thoughts from you!
