Just a quick note to say we are alive and well, but apparently too thoroughly enjoyed the summer days of relaxing (and completely neglecting the blog) and are now swamped with the start of fall. Summer was awesome -- including a road trip to the Adirondacks and Montreal, weddings, parties, lazy days at home, and lots more. Now we have done a 180 and things are in full swing around here.Matt started a new job yesterday, Ben started a toddler preschool last week (not going that well so far, we will see if we stick with it), and a whole bunch of other things going on -- weddings galore (September is full of weddings for us), house stuff, etc. Thankfully, we will be coming up for air soon. In the mean time, apologies for my absence!
