It's Been 84 Years...

Back in 2015, I was exhausted, emotionally and physically, after we moved back to the United States from Germany. After a couple weeks of resting and getting back on our feet, I tried logging into the blog and couldn't! I tried for awhile.....it wanted to send my password recovery to my old German phone number, drats!... and basically I just wanted to throw the laptop out the window. Most likely, I was still exhausted. 

Over the next few weeks during that summer, my mom shattered her ankle (I became her volunteer caregiver), Husband and I were still waiting for our house to be move-in ready, our shipping crate was basking in the hot sun somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, and I was gearing up to jump back into teaching 5th Grade Math/Science. Phew. So sadly, MainlyMaren was put on the back burner. 

Returning to Mainly Maren has always been something that has been in the back of my mind and in the back of my closet. That's where over 1,000 business cards continually fall out of their weak storage box reminding me, "Hello....Mainly Maren is still here... waiting." 

So here we are in 2018. I literally had to blow the dust off of my laptop and said a silent prayer that the charger would miraculously reappear after three years of hiding. It did. 

We are traveling a lot less now, but the adventures keep coming. My latest "project" is launching this Friday. I'm thrilled to share that news with you later this week, unless of course, I'm exhausted. 

I Can Still Smell the Fresh Paint,


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each and every one.
