life lately

I honestly don't even know where to start.

 Obviously, I took a break from blogging. It just became so low on my list of priorities, and I felt that I didn't have anything of vital interest to say, that it just fell by the wayside. I've thought of picking it back up again a few times, especially since the last few months have been pretty interesting, but it never seemed like the right time. I played with the idea of starting a different blog, but having a new name and a new website doesn't change anything if you don't have anything interesting to say!

Life is about to get extremely interesting for us, to say the least. And I want to document it all, in some way. I've never been much of a journal keeper, but I do love to type (thanks Mavis Beacon!!) and blogging just seems to be an easy and fun way to keep up with our adventures, while being able to share it with others. I have to admit, I got waaaay too caught up in the whole "blogger world"- way too invested in who viewed my posts, how well a giveaway went, if I got any comments, etc. It took away from the real reason I'm here, just to simply write and document my memories.

So, I'm starting over. No more worries about sponsors, giveaways, comments, etc. I'm just going to write. And that's that.

This summer has been a whirlwind, and I feel like we've done so much. I flew across the country with D by myself (more on that later), we're going on vacation in 2 weeks, and we have some seriously exciting things happening for us in September (I'll share details when I can).

Here is a little recap of our summer in pictures.

A visit to my parents in Montana...

Quality family time by the river...


Oh this face. Nothing makes me happier than to see this boy smile.

I hope everyone has a wonderful hump day!!!
