I was up super early this morning and planning to write a long, newsy email about our vacation so far, but then I got distracted editing my Facebook page (they’re rolling out a new design that I really like!), reading a news article, and updating my newsletter subscription pages, and suddenly it’s time to get ready for church. Isn’t that always the way??? Before I do that, I’ll share a few pictures from our trip. My husband has been taking
I started my blog as an online journal in 2006, and over the years it has morphed into a personal lifestyle and fashion blog. I have kept most of my history in tact for the sake of posterity, and I do still post memoir-style posts from time to time. Those posts are all categorized here under Diary.

She practiced right up until the last minute, and she was afraid she would mess up, but there was only one minor slip-up that I noticed. It’s fun to see how much she has progressed since this time last year. (Last year was her first recital.)
Well, the rain is back. I seem to recall many rainy Memorial Days, for some reason. I’m not sure why it always seems to rain on this day. It is warm, though, so there’s that.
