Pardon me for my long absence. As usual real life has swallowed me up, and left far to little time for blogging life. I do mean to finish my travels in Eastern Europe, but in the meantime here’s a post from Jill over at Jill’s Awesome Week.

There is even a slightly embarrassing flashback photo of yours truly. Enjoy!

And the entire weekend cost each of us less than $150. Great broke minds think alike!
