Share Your Thoughts and Opinions with Me!

I have completely fallen off the blogging bandwagon since January. Let me tell you, I've thought about you and this blog many times, but transitioning out of the military, being a mom, and finding work (and working my Jamberry Nails business) have really consumed my every waking moment.
