Finding the Moments That Define Your Event

i'm still here!

sorry it has been so dead around here: i was on vacation for a week and then spent last week in and out of the ER with kidney stones.  have you ever had them?  i thought only old people got them and had no idea what was going on when i woke up with a searing pain in my back.  seriously, all i could think about was that show, 'i didn't know i was pregnant'; i kept expecting a baby to drop out.  i think all men should be required to have at least one kidney stone in their life so they get a taste of what labor feels like. everything is good, now, but i am ridiculously behind in posting and returning phone call and emails.  thanks for everyone's patience.  in the meantime, here's a photo from our family vacation to hilton head last month:
