On Friday morning at BlogHer there was a 5K through Central Park, honoring Tanner of Tutus for Tanner. Tanner himself saw us off from the hotel lobby, and then as you can see, we sprinted the entire way.
I am so in love with this picture. It is friendship and connection and it is spreading the word for a good cause.
I have my hand on Allison, my fellow Minnesotan blog friend. She is one of the kindest people I've ever had the honor to know, so I'm really glad my hand is on her. Hopefully her goodness wore off, adhering itself to my palm a bit.
For the rest of this week through next Wednesday my family (extended and immediate) has the use of a cabin on a lake. We've already been making use of it this week. I have to show you some of the photos from out there because they are of my children and my children are the most adorable little morsels you ever did see, if I do say so myself. I missed them so much while I was gone and have been gobbling them up ever since. (Except for in the moments when my over-tired self can't function and then I'm just spaced out and impatient--and so it goes with motherhood. We moms, we get knocked down, but we get up again.) (Yes. I just tried to get that song in your head.) (You're welcome.)
Feast your eyes on the cute, and have a good few days...
In the photo at the beginning of this post, you may notice my legs are basically just toothpicks (ankles) with golf balls (knees). I get them from this man, below, my father. Except my legs have seen the sun in the last sixty-ish years and his have not...
(Don't worry. One day he'll forgive me for posting this picture. Just like he forgave me that one time when I was in seventh grade and told him I was going to a friend's house and really went to a movie with boys instead.)
Also. I may reappear randomly at some point to share a HILARIOUS Letter to a Blogging Conference from myself and Ellie. (At least we thought it was hilarious while deliriously over-tired at 1 a.m. in NYC.)
One last Also: Why are my lips so chapped? It started in NYC and it was so humid there and so I thought it was weird that I wasn't more moisturized. But my lips are still peeling off no matter how many edifying ointments I slather on them. Weird. Pollution? (And yes, I drank a ton of water.) (I know this is riveting.) (Shut up.)
