Hey, Friends!

I'm sorry it's been FOREVER since my last post. It's been a crazy--but awesome--summer! We sent 16 teams overseas and their trips were incredible! I can't believe it's over now. For more stories from the trips this summer, you can check out my missions blog at http://kristentorrestoro.myadventures.org.

So, it's August, but I can't "come back" yet. It's a super busy time at work and all my focus is on my personal/professional life right now. Honestly, I have no idea what I'd blog about because I haven't had time to think! So I'm asking for some grace... not that I expect any of y'all to be waiting with baited breath on my return. I need life to settle back into something remotely resembling a schedule before I blog again. Maybe October? Just in time for the craziness of autumn and holidays to start! Ha!

That's not to say I haven't been around. I've visited most of your blogs weekly ever since June. I just haven't been able to comment on yours or post on mine.

But I did want to give you this piece of news. I just found out that my story, Sarafina, will appear in Chicken Soup for the Soul's A Book of Miracles in September. WOOHOOOO!!! This is the first time something I've written will appear in a book, so I'm super excited!

Anywho... must run! Just wanted y'all to know that I haven't fallen off the face of the planet. I've enjoyed checking in with y'all, even though I haven't been able to communicate much from my side.

Have a great day!
