Less on the grid.

I slipped away these last 3 (ok, maybe 4) weeks.

Into hectic but exciting work.

Into places of preparation away from the busy-ness of megabytes and status updates.

And in between those two extremes of intense work and peaceful quiet, between not having enough time to savoring the vastness of it, our Superman turned 4.

Superman turns 4.

We celebrated with a family outing to our first Mariners' game.
First Mariners game.

We spent some time with these giants of creation, older than all of us.

The redwoods.

We explored our city more, a favorite pastime for us, from buses and trains to planes and ferries.

Exploring Seattle.

Although I never achieved anything close to "off the grid," I was "less on." "Less on" was exactly the right spot.

And, in the words of Pete the Cat, "And I will do it again tomorrow. Because it's all good."


  1. Welcome back! I did a double take to see you in my Bloglovin feed.
    Happy Four to Superman! My little Supergirl turned five while you were gone. Kindergarten is starting soon.

    1. I know, right? I didn't plan on taking such a break, honestly, but before I knew it, a month had gone by. That Supergirl kindergartener of yours--so beautiful! I find myself wishing they could stay this age forever.

  2. Aww, so happy to see you back and you were missed. Happy 4th Birthday to Marshall, too!! :)

    1. You are always so kind and thoughtful, Janine! Thank you! Hope you and your family have enjoyed your summer so far.

  3. Happy 4th Birthday to Marshall!! I've been a little off the grid myself. It was a tough summer. Here's to hoping to jump back into the swing of things!!

    1. Thank you! It was a fun birthday for him. Yes, here's hoping for a happy, energetic Fall!
