No, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth! I've been traveling and visiting family and friends. I haven't had much access to Internet so I've been amiss in my emailing and blogging.
Right now we're in Orlando and having fun seeing my side of the family. It's so nice and warm and humid here. I love it! We'll be visiting Disney soon too. I'll try to post pictures. And of course, I work there every summer too.
But if you're looking for a good contest, check out Ellen's blog where she's giving away a beautiful Chinese book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.
