Hello, is this thing on?

Guess who! You miss me? Jessica Simpson, sing the chorus!

These lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer keep rolling by and something had to give for awhile, and one of those things was keeping up with the blog posts. H headed off to camp today and I gave up on my chores so sitting on the porch of the summer house, listening to a few tunes, and knocking out an update seems like the perfect way to end the weekend.
