The ironic thing about blogging (for non-sponsored bloggers such as myself, anyway) is that the summer months, which by their very nature present lots of blog-worthy activities, are the months when I find myself the least-likely and least-interested in spending time sitting in front of a computer screen.
See? Ironic. The dreary, long winter presents many opportunities for writing...and far fewer interesting happenings to document. Ah, well. Such is the life of a casual blogger.
We have had a most wonderful summer. It's been a time when we've been able to really settle in and enjoy our family of three.
We celebrated Emerson's first birthday...
...& vacationed to Colorado...
...& had an overnight visit from a dear college friend...
...& spent an evening at the fair.
Not to mention the many visits to the zoo with friends, evening strolls through the neighborhood after dinner, watching Emerson play in the backyard pool, pushing her in the front-yard swing, and blowing bubbles together. There are so many beautiful memories that have made this summer with our little girl one to remember.
And, each is deserving of a blog-post recap of its own! But, for now, I'm going to enjoy the rest of this late-summer afternoon. (Although, school is back in session today and the air is crisp! Fall is just around the corner! I can feel it.)
There'll be time to recap and reflect later. That is, after all, what winter is for.
