and August marked my fifth year of blogging.
So I took a week off to celebrate! Hah. Hardly. As usual, we’re just terribly busy at this time of year.
I will mention one thing that was quite noteworthy and decidedly pleasant. I met a blogging friend last week! This marks the first time I have ever met a fellow blogger in the flesh, and it was a delight to break bread with The Slow Cook’s Ed Bruske and his wife Lane. They’d been vacationing in Pentwater, a good two miles up the lake from us. It was nice, after years of reading and commenting and emailing…to meet! Hopefully it won’t be another five years before it happens again.
