Ahhhhhhh…. Summer vacation.

I’m fully committed to doing NOTHING these bliss-filled 11 whole days, and I’m surprisingly quite adept at it.  I don’t count reading (Bossypants, by Tina Fey), eating too much, goofing off, sleeping excessive amounts or drinking caffeinated tea (to ensure I have plenty of energy for my nothing-doing.)  And, I’ve not once had to reprimand myself for trying to slip in something productive.

Todd and I flew back to Ocean City, MD, John’s hometown to celebrate his 40th birthday on August 3rd!  At first, 40 seemed a little surprising, but now it just seems smoking hot!  I’m married to a MAN.  And in honor of this milestone birthday, I want to share one of my favorite pictures of the birthday boy.  Seems like a strange pick, but something about the sun and his sexy shoulders just does it for me.  Not to mention that we were on a hike together at the time of this photo, one of my all-time favorite places to be.  Happy Birthday John!  And, welcome home…

I’ll see you back next week.  And if you’re looking for something to do, check out the new album by Bon Iver.  It’s so good.
