Coming home after eight days is like dessert. The meal was great but dessert – always the best part.

We had a delightful vacation with family and old friends, and now, at last! we are home. Our week was busy, relaxing, challenging, fun, exhausting, and inspiring.

We grilled out and swam in the lake.

We caught frogs and crickets (and sniffles).

We went to the park and the pool and the baseball stadium.

We had chocolate cake twice (one birthday, one wedding). And watching my high school best friend marry the right guy made my heart smile.

We colored and baked and made messes and cleaned up and went to bed. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but nearly all delightful.

Parenting without my sweetie was sometimes trying (and I missed him besides), but I think we’ll spend a week there next summer too. It’s good for us to break our routine and head to the city.

And now? It’s time to unpack. We leave in three days for another week away!

    Hi Rachel,

    I believe we may have met ever so briefly at the wedding (I’m Luke’s cousin on his dad’s side – I was wearing a red and white print dress), but I just had to let you know how much I LOVE your soaps! There were a bunch leftover, so I have one of each scent. The Rosemary-Lavender-Mint is perfect for my 5am showers while I get ready for work at a busy Philadelphia hospital. Ami encouraged me to check out your site and I look forward to introducing my friends (and maybe my Co-op) to your products.

    Thanks for making the world a little bit better 🙂

    Susanne Johnson
