A short break

Traveling for the next no sewing for me.

SR and I are off to Brazil tomorrow for a week sans children. The kiddos are staying home in Florence with Auntie W. We are hopeful that all goes well in both hemispheres. More on the trip when we return and maybe a few pictures too. HAving never left our children for more than an overnight it's hard to say who is going to be more distraught about our absence. I have been giving the kids extra long hugs for the past few days. Storing up I guess.

Why Brazil you say? He is presenting at a conference and I am coming a long for the ride. I am having second thoughts but it's paid for now and the sitter is here. We also get to celebrate our 11th anniversary while we are there. Crazy.



  1. Brazil?! Have fun. You will have a good time, and so will the kids.
