I know I’ve been silent lately. Truth be told, I barely think about my blog these days. Summer camps have started. The very camps I’ve spent months and months preparing. They have arrived in full force and every day I’m breathless and sweaty by 8am (gross, but totally true).
So while I’ve been silent towards you, my life has been filled with nothing but noise…of the free birth control kind. Think you *maybe* want kids? Come spend a day with me.
Some of you may have an idea of what I do, but I would like to show you our camp lineup to give you a better feel for it…because I’m so very proud of what we’ve accomplished this year. Some may call this bragging. I just think I’m awesome. I mean, IT’S awesome. Right…
