fallen behind


I'm falling behind.

I'm making things and eating delicious things and baking things and painting things and decorating things and and and, but I've fallen behind and I don't quite yet have the means to show it all to you.

I had an embarrassing topple in the yard yesterday while moving around the sprinklers and sprained the old ankle.  So now I'm falling even more behind.

Friends coming tomorrow, deadlines approaching.

Bear with me, I'll catch up.

we're back!


We're back!  I'm back!

Yesterday we drove 18 straight hours to get home.  Because we just wanted to get home.  When I finally lay down in bed last night and closed my eyes, I could still see the road whizzing by.  But we had a fun midwest adventure, full of Great Lakes and cheese curds.  And now, we're moving into our new home.

More very soon.

Note: We took these pictures of each other at my dear friend Erin's wedding which was in such an amazing location.  A gondola took you to the top of Moose Mountain, where a ski resort had an enormous porch overlooking the Superior.  Beauteous!

The Last Hurdle




Three mornings ago, I was woken up at 6am by a phone call from Kev who had showed up to the airport, only to find that his flight wasn't until the next day.  Oops.  So he came a day later, and even though it was just twenty four hours, it was excruciating.

But he's here now!  And it was love at first sight between him and Corn.  After we ate salmon brought fresh from Alaska by my parents and amazing homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream made by my Mother (with tons of mint she grew!), we went for a mountain walk behind the house.  Just as we got to the top, a sliver of the moon revealed itself from behind the Sapphire Mountains, and we enjoyed our own personal moonrise kingdom.  It was magic.

As much as we just wanted to stay home, relax for a change, and get to know Cornelia better, we hit the road this morning.  We're driving to Minnesota for a wedding.  We've dubbed this trip, "The Last Hurdle," because it is; it's the last hurdle before we can settle down for a while.  It might be a few days before I can post again.  I hope your August days are filled with magic.
