You know what?

I am here today complete of guilt or regret for not being around these past few days (and days!).

In fact, I am probably going to drop away again by tomorrow as we are in the season of  constant company (along with the usual work and activities).  I adore it (really, I mean it.  I love visitors!), it most certainly means my time must be prioritized…

It’s kind of a liberating feeling to throw my blogging routine to the wind.  If you’re feeling overwhelmed, you should try it!  So no guilt, no worries and most certainly, nothing’s wrong.  I’m just not blogging or visiting blogs right now. 

Love to you all!!

I plan on being back in action…eventually, but for the time being, I’ll enjoy this brief moment in bloggy land. 
A few updates?  Sure (complete without edited photos)!


Bear turns 2 this Thursday- YIKES!

We picked and processed 50 (yes 50) pounds of strawberries.


We traded in our wonderful, but on it’s last leg Subaru Forester for a used VW rabbit.  We’re quite the scene now: I have a red Golf and Champ has a grey Rabbit.


We had friends and family floating in and out over the Fourth of July.


Our town held it’s first annual Fourth of July Tractor Parade.  Bear and his buddies thought it was the best thing since sliced bread.
‘til next time!  XOXOXO

I'm glad you checked in and let us know that you are out there having a wonderful summer. I'm kind of jealous of the 50lbs of strawberries! Yum!

Like you, I've been pretty busy with summer activities. Leslie has come to visit for a couple of weeks, so we've been keeping the kids and ourselves entertained. It's been lots of fun, but blogging has definitely fallen by the wayside. My last post was one that I had done up a couple of weeks ago and forgot about, so it was kind of a nice bonus post for me. :)

Have a wonderful summer, but do check in from time to time, just so we can say hi.
