Life unfolds ... some of it here. This blog began as a way to focus on the good things in the midst of a crisis and be a connection to friends and family when it seemed to take all of my time just to weather the storms. It seems to have transformed into a sanctuary of musing and inspiration. Feel free to join me!

Stars and Stripes (and SWIRLS)
This year, our celebration involved children ... always a treat! For the past few summers, my kids have been in Ohio on visitation. Even though J is grown and living there now (and couldn't come here), M had to return for dance nationals and her dad was no longer able to attend, so she was flown in a day early. She was just in time to be part of a birthday party for Uncle J and Miss P. We even had a delightful accompaniment to fireworks on bongo drums!
