I've decided to take some time during the slow and lazy days of summer to take a step back from many of my responsibilities and activities and try to just Be. I haven't been writing, or reading my usual blogs too much - I've been focusing more on reading books (there's just something about holding a book in your hands, isn't there??) and being outside with my family and friends. I have been thinking a lot about community - what it means and how to build one - and I've decided that it is time for me to make a commitment to spending less time at the keyboard and more time with my peeps. We've spent time with grandparents, had a tie-dye party yesterday, had dinner with friends, and attended lots of playdates and park trips.
On that note, I'm off to snuggle with Bess on the couch for awhile.
