feeling dizzy

Hi, friends. Illinois was wonderful and amazing and all that good stuff. I really do want to tell you about it because it was fabulous! I need to tell you about the Lincoln museum, playing The Graces, and eating horseshoes. So much to tell you. So much to show you.

The thing is, I'm still spinning. We got back from Illinois late last Thursday night. As in 4 days ago. On Friday we shopped for Jeffrey's parents' 50th wedding anniversary party, which is on Saturday. As in 5 days from now. The next day, Jeffrey and I left for St. Louis to celebrate our anniversary with a weekend at the art museum and Wicked. That was also wonderful. I need to tell you about Artemis, and photographing my first stranger, and defying gravity. So much to tell you. So much to show you.

I spent today doing laundry, preparing party stuff, and packing. Tomorrow we leave for Oregon. SHEESH! What was I thinking? Fun. I was thinking FUN, I tell you. It has been crazy around here. We won't be back from our adventures till the 24th. I hope to blog from Oregon, though. Check back in, won't you? I'll leave the light on for you.

Happy summer!


The mosaic above is the creation love most since acquiring JD. I'm thinking about blowing it up kinda big and hanging it like art on my walls.

Hi, Relyn! I'm just coming up for air after a bout with bad cold & bronchitis, so slow to visiting these days. So exciting all your travels... and there's more to come! Wishing you safe & happy days ahead, my friend. And happy 50th to Jeffrey's parents--50 is a sensational milestone and example to us all! :o) ((HUGS))
