What's goin' on?

My readers are the best! I've been MIA for the past month, and cannot tell you the number of messages I've received from people asking if I am okay and when I'll be back (one person even gave me their phone number and said to call them if there is anything I need!) A big thank you to all everyone that dropped me a note; I really appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Now, on to where I've been hiding out these past four weeks (and, no, I was not abducted by aliens or on a month-long Colorado ski trip). The truth is, I've been right here in the D, lovin' every minute of this fabulous metropolis.

Why the long hiatus then?

January was a big month for me, for two reasons: one, I prepared to leave my full time job in the securities industry to take on freelance writing full-time; and two, I took on the editor-role of Detroit Living, City Living Detroit's annual magazine, last year and the new edition goes to print in a few weeks. Throw a new puppy and a somewhat-new husband into the mix, and ... you get the picture - my free time was seriously lacking.

Now, onto the good news: January 31 was my last day at my old job, so I'm now officially a full-time freelance writer. Meaning, I'm now doing what I love (writing), and I'll have a lot more free time (for Girl in the D).

I need a few more post-free days to work on Detroit Living, but should have something new up here before the end of the work week.

Until then, I encourage you to browse the archives (located in the left sidebar, near the bottom) or visit a few of the Detroit-related sites in my link list.
