Hi all,

Amy is amazing and what she contributes to the blogging community is invaluable.

Sorry for my absence this week. Started new gig and I was quite busy and exhausted after marathon training sessions.

Look for great updates this weekend and cheer me on as I prepare articles in advance for the coming week.

Best,
S
