End of Hiatus

I can’t believe it has been six months since I last posted here. I had so many thoughts for writing, but never got back to it. Then, life got hectic with travel and studies. I successfully completed ProGen 29. A huge accomplishment! I was accepted into Gen-Fed 2017 and turned that into a five-week trip: a week in DC, a week in New England (family history research), a week in Minneapolis (IGGP Conference), and then about two weeks traveling with spouse, sister, and brother-in-law back to California. Road Trip!! Reunited with family, met cousins for the first time, saw new sites… I have so much to share!!

Today is just about getting my feet wet again in the blogging pool, like starting over in a way. I have felt a combination of guilt and anxiety about restarting, but “nothing ventured, nothing gained,” they say. ¬†Welcome back!
