My summer has been interesting, to say the least. I won't cover it all in one post, but just so you know, I haven't been neglecting you for no reason! Here's a list of the things that have kept me away from being a good blogger:
An unexpected surprise
A fantastic week of blog friends visiting
Meeting a long time blog friend, and making a new one
The drowning of a Boutique
Saying goodbye to my dad
A family with the plague
If you read over the list and thought that it sounds like I had a mostly crappy summer - well you would be right. It started out amazing with my wonderful visit with wonderful friends, but quickly went downhill from there. I figure the best way to get over my self-pity is just to get it all out on the blog and move on!
On a more cheerful note, who watched the Olympics? Unless you're new here, you know I freaking LOVE the Olympics. Have you had a favorite moment? I've been a little distracted, so I haven't enjoyed them the way I normally do, but here are some things that have made me smile during the past couple weeks:
Phelps going out on top.
First team gold for U.S. women's gymnastics since '96
And of course, everything about this guy made me smile. Oh yeah, and maybe cry a little too.
I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer. And maybe missed me at least a little bit. I'll be back tomorrow to tell you all about the awesome girls who came to help me kick off the summer.
