Last night was the first installment of this year’s Vacation Bible School. For 3 hours, I was transported nearly 2,000 years back in time to an agora (marketplace) where I toiled at the produce/spice shop. The smell of fresh basil, sage, thyme, rosemary, and many other herbs stayed on my hands all night long.
Last Saturday, SnakeMaster climbed into someone else’s minivan for an much-anticipated week at the beach. On Thursday morning, I will be putting MusicMan on a plane to visit old friends. These are the moments where I bear witness to the beginnings of letting go… because ultimately, these little birds are outgrowing the nest and will soon fly away.
I had the incredible privilege to meet a group of local bloggers last Friday. I recognized Alice & Jacki from their blog photos, but everyone else was visually “new” to me. We gathered names & blog addresses (mine list had to be written on the back of a Costco receipt… Unprepared? Moi?) and spent some time getting to know one another. TheMomBabe took a picture of our very bad waiter. Thank you, Whateveryournamewas, for giving us more blog fodder.
So who was there?
TheMomBabe, Meredith, Rachel, Jacki, Annie, Hannah, Suburban Correspondent, Alice, Dysfunction Junction,and yours truly. I took the 1st photo, SC took the 2nd one. Yes, Suburban Correspondent kept to her policy of not having any photographs of herself on the internet.
Members of The Women’s Colony, you can be jealous that I got to meet her in person!
