In ’round about 48 hours the kiddos will be back in school and I will begin recovering from the chaos that was Summer Twenty-Thirteen. My brain is totally fried, and I wanted to come up with a really witty way to bid the last two months a fond farewell, but then I stumbled upon Jen Hatmaker and she says all.the.words so well that it would probably be better if you just click the link and read her, and love her, and add her to your feed. (Seriously I want to be her when I grow up…well with my own stories and passions….but her.)
Since Jen has already said it so well, I will pretend that you’re in my living room under the guise of ‘catching up’ and once I’ve handed you a warm, (or cold) beverage and seduced you with rich chocolate goodness….here are my zillion and six summer vacay photos!
