I'm baaaack - is anybody still out there?

After a year and a half hiatus, I am finally making my re-entry back into the blogosphere. Much has happened in the past year and a half...after a rough pregnancy, my husband and I are now the proud parents of a beautiful baby girl who will be referred to as baby "M" for the sake of this blog. I've also resigned from my full-time job in corporate research, something I never thought I would do, and now stay home with the baby and pick up a few hours here and there tutoring. So with that being said, I find I finally have time to do some blogging again.

Recently I had the opportunity to review The Help by Kathryn Stockett for my local paper. I loved this book and had a great time reviewing it. If you haven't read this book yet, go out and get it - you won't be disappointed. I also got the chance to meet Stockett (who is just as nice as can be and gorgeous too I might add) in person at last month's ALA conference in Chicago which was fabulous. I met my old college roommate out there for the conference and it was a total blast. We are already planning next year's trip to the conference in DC.

That's it for now - just wanted to say hello and that I am looking forward to catching up on all of your blogs!
