Things I've learned this summer, in no particular order:

  1. If you promise your sister the gift of a wedding album, you'll scrapbook day and night to make sure it's perfect in time to be hand-delivered. Even if you can't blog pictures because she's private like that. And you have nothing else to blog about. But, you'll be totally ok with that. :)
  2. She'll be ok with the album being three years late if you make it worth it. And it was so worth it. Seriously? If I had made this book when I promised it to her? It would have contained gems like these:
  1. There's nothing that can replace time with family.
  2. A flatulent dog is a poor bedfellow.
  3. Eating the tasty morsels your niece and nephew drop from their high chairs will make a dog flatulent.
  4. If anyone ever asks you if you want to go to a restaurant-slash-pub and the only way to get there is by boat? The answer is a resounding yes.
  5. Likewise with an offer to see Doc Walker or George Canyon at a music festival.
  6. You'll develop a serious case of blog-envy as you read other people's blogs and dream about all of the fun projects they're doing. Your comments on said projects will become less and less creative with each new post you read.
  7. Summer vacation will always feel like it flew by.
