That's how long it has been since I visited this space. A year full of beginnings and endings.
Among other things:
Paulie began high school.
Elizabeth finished her final year at her K-8 arts school.
Philip began middle school.
Finn began guitar lessons.
Paulie began marching band.
We each grew a year older.
Just this summer, we visited with friends at Hanging Rock,
Finn participated in music camp,
Finn and I visited family in Philadelphia (and met a new niece!),
the kids and I hiked the top of Pilot Mountain,
Finn lost a plethora of teeth and went to camp,
Elizabeth and I summited Mt. Evans outside Denver,
we fed large animals at Lazy 5 Ranch,
and we spent a week at the beach with friends.
I'm unsure how often I'll be in this space. I was relieved to let go of the pressure of blogging last summer, and I'm happy to be back now, in whatever capacity I feel works for me. Stay tuned later this week for details of new endeavors we're embarking on this year.
