(This is my darling niece, Kira, and her beautiful mom, my sister, Jennifer.
Kira's getting married, so we went to Dallas for a bridal shower for her.)
(And this is the beautiful park in downtown Dallas where Kira will be getting married in September. Isn't it gorgeous?!)

We're getting ready to leave for a wedding in ten minutes, but surprise! I'm the first one ready. I thought I'd just give you all a quick update and then a quick good bye for a while.
First, the update.
People have been asking how my summer is going and what I've been up to, and I realize that my answer is kind of crazy. Since school got out in early May, I have been to California and back. England and back. Dallas and back. And now I'm headed to the north woods for two weeks.
So most of my summer has been spent . . . elsewhere. Which, for this traveling girl, is not a bad thing.
I've also spent a lot of time in doctor's offices. Nothing at all is the matter with me (in fact, every time I get a check up the doctor cannot believe that there is NO family history of basically anything), it's just time for a lot of checking up. You know, mid-life and all that.
Plus I needed a crown replaced, so I've spent a good bit of time with my dentist with whom I have a love-hate relationship. I love him as a person (SUCH a great guy!), but I absolutely hate going there. Oh well. That's done.
So, like I said, I'm leaving again. Tomorrow morning, B and I are leaving for the north woods where we hope to get a glimpse of our youngest girl who's at camp for the summer. In fact, the boat is already tied to the top of our car, the bike rack is installed and ready for bikes, and our first stop tomorrow is camp so I can hug my girl's neck.
Well, I did it. I updated you in ten minutes.
And now, despite the rain and gloomy weather, we're off to celebrate the daughter of some of our closest friends. So excited!
Happy summer! See you in a couple of weeks!
