My son is six today. It's amazing how quickly we've arrived at this place and unbelievable that six years later, the night before my son's birthday was a repeat of the night before I gave birth. I was at my table, working late into the night on a Christmas assignment (thankfully this go round I won't be returning from the hospital as a first time mother with my assignment still laid out waiting to be completed).
At any rate, I thought I should check in and assure you that I've not given up blogging. There's just something about summer and blogging that doesn't quite work for me. I'm lazy through the first half of summer, recovering from the school year, figuring out the new routine, eager for more social activity, and then slammed through the second half of the summer with fall and winter holiday assignments.
But Christmas is almost over in my house and school starts this week and I've got a million ideas and projects running around in my head that I want to share here. So please bear with me - I'll get back to some type of rhythm soon. And I really can't wait to share all of the holiday projects I've been working on. I'm tired, but I've been having a lot of fun and I'm really happy with the results of my labor, which feels good.
So on a Monday morning, I don't have much, but I thought I'd share a quote with you from E.B. White, which feels appropriate since my son and I are currently reading Charlotte's Web. I've been collecting quotes for years, but so many of them are scribbled in notebooks and I realized recently that I'd never enjoy them unless I got them out of the notebooks. So I've started typing them up on the vintage typewriter I received for Christmas and I leave them on display. That way, when I pass it throughout the day I end up reading it over and over (and remembering it). The following week brings another. So here it is - the quote for this week.
Have a happy Monday!
