So ... we packed up for nearly twenty days and I forgot to let you know.
We shoved bikes and baby dolls and bits of each room into bulging bags. We pulled out and went north to make a home away from home, to be with friends who feel like home in so many ways.
They called and asked, "Will you come?" And well, in the midst of our Year of Finding Home, somehow leaving for all of July seemed a logical decision ...
I'll tell you what we've been up to in a day or two. A few hints? I've got a walkie talkie and the kids have a nanny. We meet up each night at six to "drop that beat."
And these friends of ours? Each time we're together, our little family gets another lesson in loving well.
