all she wanted was a bike for her birthday. can you tell what her favorite color is?

This crazy life.

To quote Reed's favorite movie,

Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

Pretty much sums up life these days.

We sold our house 3 months ago. The new house was built, and we moved in. Now, in mid-June, the sale has fallen through and we are back to square one in the sales process. Frustrating? Yes. Bitterness? Yes. Could life be worse? A resounding, Yes.

So, it's our challenge this summer to live life more simply...lots of books, lots of swimming, eating dinners on the deck, growing a garden, trying to find joy in the everyday. For today it's enjoying Lauren's birthday with presents, cake, and celebrating the fact that we are here, we are healthy, and we love each other very much.
