Life without internet…

… means I don’t post for a month. Interesting how dependent we become upon internet. We’ve been without the net since our neighbors moved out August 10th or so. I felt so disconnected, not knowing what was going on in the world, or with friends. While we’ve been reconnected now since Monday, I haven’t had a chance to update since then.

A recent point of interest and fun… We spent our anniversary in Asheville, NC. What gorgeous country it is up there. I think we’ll return once the leaves have begun to change.
