Hi everyone, I’M GOING ON VACATION. Okay, not technically yet, but basically really soon. It’s August, and I somehow haven’t even had a mini-vacation yet this year, so even though this isn’t a trip on a massive scale, I’m ready. In the meantime, we’ve been dashing around taking meetings and riding the work tidal wave. It’s been grand, but I’d rather ride the lapping ripples of a babbling stream. Vacations with a toddler are mostly just taking the show on the road, but still. At least it’s the road.
But in between now and vacation, it’s our five-year anniversary tomorrow. It’s crazy since we’d been together five years when we got married, so we just doubled that. But time flies when you’re having fun.
