Although my holiday could be classified as a smashing success, my family has faced continued illness in the days since. In the midst of administering medication and being up half the night, the blog has taken a back seat.
In an effort to get it back on track, I thought I’d start with a “quote of the week,” even though it’s Thursday and not Wednesday.
