too long. i blame my blogging absence on my little mac's lack of memory. i guess i could have posted my thoughts in the meantime, but we all like posts with pictures better, right? so thanks to our friend Mo, my mac now has 500 GB, and i was finally able to upload the rest of my photos. a lot has happened this summer. we drove to Arkansas for family camp, married off my sister, Lily did the flower girl thing, celebrated Luke's first birthday and found a house! Yes! it's official- we closed today! so i'm going to play catch up over the next few weeks.
