Update

I apologize for how quiet it's been around here lately and, perhaps, how...un-inspiring it's been on the design/decor front (but perhaps it's been inspiring in a different way? i don't know. if it has please let me know in the comments).

I have lots of emails in my inbox to respond to and if you've been waiting on a response I truly apologize. I'm not usually this slow to respond but, understandably I hope, my mind and thoughts and spare time have really been filled with other things. Things like India and getting semi-ready (departure date is in exactly 3 months...which I know will FLY by).

Are you all tiring of hearing about India yet? I hope not.

Because one of the things I've been working on is a new blog. (I know, I have like a million and one blogs that sit un-updated out there but those have mostly all been closed). The new blog I'm working on (and which is essentially ready) will be a travel blog...a travelogue. It's where I will blog leading up to India and while I'm in India - to share my thoughts, stories, adventures, the good, the bad, the ugly, and LOTS of pictures. I'll also be vlogging. Yup, I'll be doing videos...something I've never ever done on any blog and am excited to do. I'm pretty excited about the new blog and hope when I share it with you you all join me over there. (Yes, that means this blog will soon go on a pause).

I've also been making tons of lists of things I need to get done - and there is a lot to do.

Plus, I've made the decision to give up my apartment and move back home for 2 months before heading off to India. Financially, it just makes sense. I'm already paid up until August 31 so it doesn't make much sense to spend extra money there (rent, bills, groceries, etc.) for September and October when I could be putting that money towards India. It was a hard decision to make and I'll be posting a kind of "farewell to my apartment" soon.

Plus, a few short weeks ago I received VERY exciting news...so I'm planning a baby shower before I leave! I'm very excited about it and well share more of the good news later.

Plus, I'm teaching myself to shoot film.

Plus, I'm really trying to enjoy my family and friends and Howard...and to indulge in things I know I'll miss.

Plus, my birthday is coming up in about 3.5 weeks.

Plus, in 3.5 weeks I have to go to Ottawa for a few days for in-country pre-departure training.

Plus, I just confirmed a photography session I'll be shooting in 2 weeks.

Plus, plus, plus....there's a lot of pluses y'all lol.

But, despite all of the above, I'm determined to get back to each of you who has sent me an email. You took the time to write to me and it makes me mad and irritated at myself that I have yet to respond.

So, this long weekend, in addition to doing a bunch of family things, I'm going to buckle down and respond to as many of you as I can. Thank you for reading along and writing and just being patient with me. I hope now you can understand why (but perhaps you already knew) things have been kinda dry around here.

Oh! And if you're not already, why not follow me on twitter (username kayinto)? I tweet frequently and some of it isn't too boring...

Happy Long Weekend!

Congratulations again on your job in India. We must make decisions sometimes that we don't like, but they are in our best interest. I'm looking forward to your travelog and your vlogging. Happy Weekend!

Ah so busy! I'm so excited for you, for your big move... The thought of living in another country sounds... AMAZING!

That's a great idea for a new site! Moving to India is such an incredible adventure; I don't think I'd get tired of you talking about it. By the way, moving in with your parents is awesome. I was just telling my husband today that I wish we could move in with his or my parents - think of all the money we'd save not paying a mortgage! Plus, home-cooked meals every night! Sigh. Too bad both sets live many states away. So enjoy your time at home :)
