I don’t suppose anyone with an online journal can claim to want nothing from it. If we truly wanted nothing, we wouldn’t be posting on the internet, after all.

But my personal relationship with blogging has gone through many evolutions over many years, and I’m in a quiet place with it right now. There’s so much noise out there. I don’t need it here.

These pictures are from several months ago, Memorial Day weekend, when we took the kids to visit my in-laws, who graciously enabled me and Andy to get away for a couple child-free nights. We stayed at a lovely traditional bed & breakfast in the Finger Lakes region, and it was the first time in at least two years that I truly relaxed.
