A little clue as to what we've been up to since my last post? Scroll this post below, and don't blink! You might miss something; that's how I've felt, haha.
July 1st. The big wild wilderness awaits. Out West. It's considered amazing and miraculous by everyone for a reason. Over four days we explored the mountainous passes of Wyoming and Montana with Ted's parents, then convened with all the relatives in small town NE.
July 13. ESA 40th Anniversary celebration at Eastern University. We are challenged; we are renewed and inspired by thought-provoking and grounded leaders in the Christian world.
July 19-20. Love and weddings. The rolling, forested hills of western Maryland. Root beer floats with our Haitian heroes and friends. Oh, and a pre-anniversary kayak jaunt before coasting out of Deep Creek and back on home.

Katharine picks up One Thousand Gifts
by Ann Voskamp, and the mental list begins... everything for which I'm thankful; seeing God in the day-to-day, moment by moment... trying to when sometimes I just want a nap. Wondering why I have such a weak constitution.
August 6th. Lee Ann comes to stay in Philly. Office re-decorating and lots of home-cooked meals and forays into Philly's finest (Lebanese, to-die-for burgers, premiere water ice, Soul & North African, Mexican, Chinese, best earl grey ever.)
Somewhere along the way we get on an Audrey Hepburn kick. It starts with classic movies more generally, Casablanca
in the park in the moonlight. Then a regrettable Funny Face
, but better Breakfast at Tiffany's
and it keeps going...
August 15th. Celebrating 4 years of marriage together. We celebrated with Chinese food and cheesecake.
And finally... a surprise for Ted? More on that later!
