Sometimes, when you take an extended break from blogging, it behooves a blogger to make some sort of explanation or excuse.
And sometimes, you just jump right in.
The Sleep Away Camp I Always Dreamed Of
When I was a little girl, I dreamed of going to camp. I have a feeling this dream was heavily influenced by The Parent Trap (the Hayley Mills version, thankyouverymuch). Even though my parents were (and are) married, the romanticism was not lost on me. Alas, for whatever reason, my parents never sent me away to camp. (The reason may have been that I never actually asked. At any rate, I don’t remember them saying no.) But, don’t cry for me Argentina! Last week I took aalllll mah’ girls to camp and we had quite the adventure. (Forgive the unedited iPhone photos. Better than nothing…???)
Horseback riding (squeeee-hee-hee-heeeeeeee!!!!)
Mucho tiempo holding a bebe:
While I was away
Kevin and the boys had a blast. In fact, I’m pretty sure they didn’t want me to come home.
Ch-ch-ch-charleston, here we come!
Wednesday morning, Kevin and I will be taking Rosie to Charleston, SC. It’s a combination trip: celebrating our anniversary (Our 13th was last Monday!) and I’ll be attending the Edel Gathering. I haven’t been this excited for a trip in a very long time.
To make it even more exciting, we’re flying first class on the way there! Wheeeeee! And no, I will not be providing bribes to the people near us. I doubt Rosie will fuss much, but if she does… well, that’s what babies do and I don’t feel the need to pretend otherwise. (So there.)
Last week I was away from virtually all internet and boy, was it blissful. I don’t realize how much I need it unless it’s forced upon me.
Anyway, I read this book and man, I cannot stop gushing about it. I honestly do not know how many people I’ve talked to about it, but I have to tell you, too.
Saint John Paul the Great: His Five Loves was exactly the book I needed to read last week. Need a hero? JPII’s got you covered. His writing on love is just about the most profound thing I’ve found outside the Bible and, oh… just read it. Please? It’s quick enough, and “inspiring” doesn’t even do it justice.
Throwing my hat in the What We’re Reading Wednesday ring. Make sure to visit Jessica for more book recs!
Happy belated Fourth of July! We went to our local library and watched the fireworks with a few (thousand) of our good friends.
And Rosie wishes you all kinds of peace and relaxation.
