i'm back

hello, old friends. its been awhile. it has been a really enjoyable hiatus from my 'normal' life, and even a good fifteen days away from this blog. while i love this thing as both an avenue of expression for me and a way to stay connected with all of you, i also needed a break from all things computerish, and so i return to you refreshed and refueled.

actually, when you take a vacation with a toddler and a newborn, you feel like you need a vacation to recover from your vacation. but that's how it goes.

we had a wonderful vacation in the state of maine. i want to tell you all about it, but this will have to do for tonight. the picture above was taken by my dad at the Pemmaquid Point Lighthouse, only a couple of miles from where we stayed in New Harbor. what a beautiful and inspiring place.
these purple flowers, which shannon tells me are called lupine (and which i lovingly refer to as 'professor lupin') were EVERYWHERE in the maine countryside, which made for some beautiful vistas, as you can see in this picture that shannon took one evening, right off the side of route 32.

here we are at shaw's wharf in new harbor. it is hard to get a family picture these days, and this is just about as good as it got for us. we really had a wonderful time, and i look forward to telling you more about it in the coming days. i hope you are all well.
its good to be back.
