Yes, I know, I haven’t been posting nearly as much as I used to, but I must say, it touches my heart when people ask me about it and say they miss my posts.
To be truthful (not like I’m not always truthful with you), not only has our busy summer prevented me from blogging, but so has our new high tech computer. You see, our Mac was ruined at our wedding celebration last September. Someone carelessly (me) set it next to a faulty slushy machine, which exploded all over the computer. Since then, we were using my old HP, which started shorting out. Finally, we decided to get a new laptop. One with Windows 8. One with a touchscreen. One that is thin with a large screen. Neat, right? Well, sort of. It was a little too much technology for Nate and me, and its taken an extraordinary amount of time for me to learn how to use the picture software.
So, my goal is to post at least once a week. I figure I’ll never learn how to use it, and use it well, unless I’m actually trying to learn!
In the mean time, please enjoy some unedited shots of our busy spring/summer!
One of the first nice days of the summer was a Sunday our good friends were in town. We had brunch, and well, things really escalated quickly. Later that night, Kim and I disappeared for a few hours. We were supposed to go pick up pizza and return, but we stopped off at the bar for a few instead… Meanwhile, Charlotte enjoyed the sunshine.
