We’re very sorry for the long hiatus from posting; we had really good reasons, we swear! First of all, and most importantly, Mera gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy! More on that in just a moment. Almost concurrently – and far less joyously – I broke my right arm badly enough to require surgery, bringing all house projects, typing, and solo hair-washing to a screeching halt. Seven years of roller derby, but it was the perilous combination of my own carelessness and a flailing child at the local skating rink that finally sent me to the Emergency Room.

From Mera: August James Gilmore arrived at the beginning of the month, weighing in at a hefty 9 pounds. My water broke in the locker room at the gym, and forty crazy minutes later Gus was in my arms!
Gus is hale and hearty, and sweet as can be. We’re smitten!
While Katie is healing and I’m cooing at my baby and getting through these days filled with everything but also nothing, we won’t be posting on a regular schedule. We’ll pop in now and again (all the more reason to subscribe so you’ll know when we’re posting), and we’ll resume our regular posting schedule in a few months.
Thanks for bearing with us! xoxo
