Back To Blogging + Giveaway Winner

There really are no excuses to explain my 6 month blogging hiatus.  I can't thank those of you enough for your concerns and kind comments while I was MIA.  I guess the only thing I can say, at the risk of sounding completely cliche, is that I've been finding myself.

I started working out and running races after a 4 year break from the gym, scratched my traveling itch, ate at amazing restaurants, partook in a close friend's wedding, and went through dramatic changes relationship wise.  In a way these past few months have been my own personal Eat, Pray, Love.




I realized how much I wanted to share these experiences.  So I've decided to change around the format a bit in order to motivate myself to update more frequently. A little less lip gloss and a little more life, love, food, exercise, and traveling.  Hope you'll join me on this new adventure!

And of course -- my super late late late giveaway winner.  There were an incredible 8,817 entries!  Obviously I will be throwing in plenty of extras to make up for the ridiculous delay.

The winner is #2912 Genna Margulies.  Congratulations Genna -- I've sent you an e-mail so please respond with your full mailing address.  I will be redrawing in a week if she does not respond.  Thank you so much for your patience with me everyone!
