Hiatus Explanation

A lot of people have been asking how our blog has been going and a simple reply of "it's not" has not been to the liking of our followers. So, we thought we would take a moment to explain why we have a VERY legitimate excuse for disa-poofing.

That excuse is this little one:

Riley Lee. Our miracle baby that we never thought was possible. With her impending arrival (I will be induced November 27th) we have had to make a LOT of changes. That meant we had to put the books down (SAY IT AIN'T SO!) and start getting everything we needed together to raise our first child. We both got full-time jobs and a new place to call our own. It hasn't been easy. We have had cars break down and stop working, leaky roofs, too many bills and not enough money... It's been hard. But, we've pulled through and now we are expecting our little bundle of joy next week. She is 8 lbs 15 oz of big baby love (her father is 6'10" and she's inherited his height) that we can't wait to welcome home.

What this means for the site is that our weekly memes may not be as consistent and our reviews may be a little slow in coming. That does not mean that we are completely giving up on Books A-Brewin'. We are just... prioritizing our daughter over our hobbies as any parent should.

Thank you all for being understanding and sticking with us through all this. I know its been a crazy long disa-poofing and we apologize. When Riley is born, I will be sure to post lots of pictures. Baby pictures are even more swoon-worthy than books (Oh yeah, I said that).
