I’ve gone the past 2 weekends without a new Current Obsession. I’ve been trying to take some time for myself and my family on the weekends – and I’ve been so busy lately, that even scheduling posts hasn’t been an option. Prom and Wedding Season is coming up and I have been super busy in the salon! It’s tough to have 2 jobs sometimes!

Ya know, just in case you cared.
So, I think when the house gets quiet, and my brain gets loud, it will be time to reflect on what we’ve been up to lately, and share it with all of you guys. You’re the reason I am still here, after all.
