2015 in retrospect: July, August, and September

IMG_7458We celebrated the Fourth of July with my parents, my sister, and her family.  We all loved having all the cousins together.

We picked the kids up from 3.5 weeks at camp.  We missed them when they were gone and it was a joyful reunion.

We spent a week on Lake Champlain, which has become a cherished tradition.  It was marvelous.

We spent Labor Day hiking to a Appalachian Mountain Hut cabin overnight with some of our dearest friends.

We celebrated our 15th anniversary with dinner the four of us.  I took some heat for that choice, but it felt absolutely like the way to mark 15 wonderful years, and we loved our dinner.  The photograph above is from that night.

Do people still read blogs? 

My favorite quote I shared:

I hope you’ll discover, as I have, that its not what lands you in the dark woods that defines you, but what you do to make it out.

– Joseph Luzzi, In a Dark Wood

    Love that quote, Lindsey. I’m in a bit of a dark woods now, and appreciate the reminder that this will pass.

    I love that we both tend to question whether people still read blogs and yet we both do. And we’re people! So I say yes! 😉
