By Julie Van De Wyngaerde |

getting clearIt feels as though I’ve been MIA for the past month and I guess that’s because in a way I have been. It wasn’t a conscious decision for me to fall out of site, and given that I don’t like to judge anyone’s process, I’m going to allow my time away to just be what is or was.
