well i've been busy doing things. what kind of things, you ask? i had a baby, and we moved our house. this has been the craziest month ever. though my new daughter is divine, and i love the new home, i don't recommend that any of you try to combine those two events! thankfully, the house is in one piece, and so am i. we may be living out of boxes for months - but i don't care. we are here, and she is here, and that is what matters. i've attached some pictures of our newest addition. tomorrow i hope to post about our day at american girl - but sometimes tomorrows turn into next weeks when it comes to these things - so i beg for patience. regular work life resumes very soon (and i can't wait actually) - which means that regular postings should return as well! thanks for reading, always. thanks.
