This afternoon I was practicing juggling with my son and beau. (We're visiting my mom in a small town in Ohio.) I happened to mention that I felt guilty I hadn't posted a blog entry since I left San Francisco last week. Here's what my son said: "Mom! You're on vacation. Why not set an example for people and simply post a couple fun photos with a short caption that says you're simply celebrating and they should, too!"

I love my kid. He's so smart.

So here I am with a quick note to remind you that it is summer. And if there happens to be a yard or park near where you are, how about kicking off your shoes and treating yourself to that nothing-beats-it feel of being barefoot in the warm grass? Extra credit if you lie on your back and watch the clouds.

Sorry to blog and run. But vacation still awaits. xo
