Summer Blessings!

Today is the official start of summer, although we've been thoroughly enjoying our first few weeks of summer break. After the kids' last day of school, we went on holiday to Arizona. I have written before of our two categories of vacations: adventures (like Malta and Turkey) or relaxations (like Spain or Arizona).

This tip mainly consisted of playing and relaxing, napping and eating, with some museums and activities thrown in to break up the days. It was a much needed vacation from the house, the yard, and the hustle-bustle of our Chicago lives.

Now we're back and getting ready for a visit from our friends from Paris who arrive on Wednesday! So exited to see them! A week after they depart, the wonderful Kyle Cassidy will be coming to conduct a photo seminar at our house! Spots are nearly filled, but contact me if you're interested.

Many many exciting things in the works for Fall 2010! The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on Saturday, November 20, 2010. Save the date, it's going to be an unexpected delight!

Also in the works are several projects of creative collaboration with the talented Madeline Carol Matz! Yay!!! And in the midst of it all, writing, writing, and more writing! I promise to try and update with greater regularity.

Time for tea.
