I'm still alive out here! I just haven't been in the mood for writing much I guess. Still peeling back all of the layers you could say.

I had a lovely weekend with a friend I've known since high school. She arrived Friday night bearing pizza and all sorts of other wonderful treats. She brought me more books to add to my pile of unread ones. (Some day I will actually have enough energy to start reading again before bed. I'm lucky if I manage to even put pajamas on before crashing.)

We took the kids to the park, had water balloon fights and ate popsicles. Saturday night we made use of the fire pit and roasted hot dogs and made the most delicious smores I've ever had in my entire life. Gooey marshmallows & melted chocolate all smooshed between graham crackers. Sinful. All we really did was eat and it was wonderful.

Thank goodness for amazing family and friends. I love having house guests, great conversations and laughing until I almost pee my pants.

My morning has been awesome so far - good coffee, fresh air, birds and sun. I have lot's of work to do today, but I'm going to make sure to take lot's of breaks too. It's all about balance don't you think? Oh, and chocolate of course.

Did I mention I've been severely bitten by the photography bug? I'm completely obsessed with taking pictures, constantly scanning my surroundings looking for an amazing shot. However, the recent discovery of a wood tick on one of my kids has made me a little reluctant to go foraging around in the backyard for photos. Not a fan of creepy little bugs that suck your blood. The mosquitoes are pretty crazy out there right now too! My little guy has bites on his little bum which I'm sure is a direct result from all the streaking he did this weekend. Nothing says fun like running around with your junk flapping in the wind.
