I’m taking a blogging break for the next week or so.
This has been the quickest summer of my life – just one big blur, really. So I’m turning off the computer for awhile, so I can savor the sunshine, the silliness, and the season of leisure. I want to really remember my baby’s beginning clumsy steps toward me. I want to join my intrepid bug catcher on a few more hunts in the soft summer dusk. I want to eat more watermelon and blueberries. I want to hear the sounds of my preschooler shrieking and baby squealing as we splash in the lake together. I want to run barefoot in the grass along with my daughter and when she says, “Mommy, this is the best day ever,” I want that memory to be our own and something that’s forever etched in mind even if I never get a chance to write about it.
Of course, even without the computer I’ll still be writing – just the old-fashioned way armed with a pen and journal.
And I’ll be back blogging in no time. But in the meantime, why not soak up some summertime memories of your own?
