It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. That’s what happens when I go without a desktop from the end of May until mid-August. Here’s what’s been up, and what’s coming up.

When I was planning our recent trip to Normandy, my husband mentioned wanting to see Mont St. Michel. I’d never heard of it, but believe me: when this tolerant man–whom I drag around Europe according to personal whim–puts in a travel request, I make it happen.
