i duly apologize for managing to fall off the side of the planet again. it seems i got a bit carried away with all the spring breaking and processing wedding photos and a week in georgia's peachtree city (more on that to come), but i am very much alive and happily ticking along.
one of the things God's been teaching me is to slow the heck down and be with the good folk around me, get involved in their story. especially when it comes to heartache, i have this internal compulsion to Solve Everything And Move Forward, when mostly what's needed is to be someone's quiet company.
we did the georgia things sans kiddos, thanks to the mister's courageous mother who took mighty good care of our crew. i suspect little em honeymooned with grandma (as he does with anyone new), so then we came back home and all our hard-won relational progress had flitted off to never never land. the past couple days have been a bit bumpy, but with enough consistency and a generous helping of grace, i imagine we'll relocate our groove.
in other news, i think i've disclosed my status as a fair weather runner, yes? well, unfortunately for me, this spring has been uncharacteristically fair, so sunday i headed out for my inaugural
also, soccer season is once again upon us, and except for the fact that these small people have entirely too much energy, i am awfully fond of my team. i also have high hopes of winning a game or two this time around, but if not, we shan't lose heart: the post-game snack makes defeat but a hazy memory.
anyhow, i've missed you all something fierce. i'm woefully behind on life and things are only picking up speed, so if i owe you an email or phone call or blog visit, give me a friendly nudge or leave me a link to something going on with you.
ps so these ferny guys. i love them. one week they're fisted bulbs of new green, and six days later they've fanned knee-high. i never tire of photographing them, and secretly? i don't think they mind.
