Here I am! I still exist!

The weather has been so lovely and I have been moderately busy and so I haven’t written anything for weeks … but right now I am visiting my family in Minnesota and everyone is either reading for book club (sister), at a plant sale (brother-in-law and niece) or napping (nephew) and so I decided I better write something right away for fear of letting this site languish with disuse.

I am well. Things are good. I am in Minnesota, kicking off a summer of travel and photography in almost the best way possible: with my wonderful family. The only thing that would make it better would be rescuing O from school and getting him out here, too. Who needs instruction on what composes the jelly that fills your eyeballs (ophthalmology block!) when you can be at a park in 70 degree weather, taking photos and eating ice cream? I guess the future PA’s of America, that’s who, but I still wish he were here.

One major highlight over the past few days has been listening to my niece rapid-fire live-streaming her four-year-old life. Last night at dinner, she dropped a chip over her shoulder and it smashed on the floor. Without missing a single beat, she said “my chip fell down and broke its heart!”

… and that very same niece just came back from the garden store and there is no way more writing is getting done right now. Ciao ciao for now, peeps.

Becca :: Making Room in Sicily - Oh dear, Lena already keeps me entertained (and preoccupied!) with a constant stream of chatter and she’s just over two… I can’t imagine when she’s four!

So glad you had a wonderful getaway with your family. :-)

Emily - You will love the four-year-old chatter, you really will. Thanks for stopping by, even with my super sporadic posting!
