The ligth at the end of the tunnel
Sorry for the extended hiatus! It was not my intention to be absent from blogging this long at all.Those who know me know that my life has been through a lot of changes these last 2 years. We moved to a new part of the country, I took on a new job, and my twins were both diagnosed on the Autism spectrum.In these situations, it's usually best to sit down and prioritize and do what's best for all involved.

Visual Studio Little Wonders: Quick Launch / Quick Access
