The lovely Kyrie at are so happy had a beautiful series of posts about a "week in the life" recently. I've been wrestling with how to ease back into the blog, but when I saw her posts I knew this was perfect. Our circumstances have changed a bit and I haven't been comfortable writing in the same way as I have in the past. I think blogs with any kind of longevity move through different seasons anyway. I am looking forward to sharing other parts of our lives now - simple, quiet offerings of our work and passions and learning. Thanks for coming with me, as always.

*10 years for a miracle boy.
*Always a good listener.
*Grain-free pancakes with melty whipped cream and huckleberries: what you have for dinner to make up for not being able to have any of the birthday party dessert.
*Wrapping up the day with books - the way all best days end.
Tonight is the official end of our vacation. I hate the thought of sending Mark out the door to work again tomorrow; I like having him here so much. But it will be good to get back to the regular work and rhythm that makes our lives hum. There's a lot of pleasure to be had in a well-ordered routine, I think. Beauty follows order as the saying goes. And you know how I cherish beautiful things.
