It has been a while since I've blogged because I was out of town for work and then went directly to an escape in the country for a few days. Admittedly, I was feeling a little beat up by NYC before I even set out to Jersey for tech week. And, not surprisingly, after 9 days of working 14 hour days making crazy crafty feathered headpieces and costumes for The Little Mermaid, I really needed a break before returning home. In all, I was away from my laptop for 13 days and it felt pretty good.

So the opportunity came up to hop on a bus straight out of Jersey and take a visit to my friends in the country. It all sort of came together at the last minute, and after a 6 hour ride, around midnight I found myself walking into the comfort of a big ole country house, quiet and peaceful, new yet familiar. I have fond memories of time spent there last summer, and I had hoped to return. I finally exhaled.
