Life, As of Late (More Inlife and Less Online)

Hello, Anne here. By now you may know I am the main contributor, writer and editor of this blog; and Mike is my favorite prop/subject. We both contribute to our Instagram account, and yes, it is can be confusing, but if you knew us at all—it would seem quite normal.

You may have noticed the blog posts are fewer than years before, with many more images than descriptions. In the last 5 years the intention of this blog has changed so much, and sometimes I'm not quite sure what this blog is about. We attempted a blog re-vamp, but life, school and work got in the way, and now it looks as if that has been put on the back burner indefinitely. However, at the end of the day we still love our little blog here—the ultimate definition of a web-log. We have used the blog to go back and piece together small events that led to bigger things. It has given us reason to get out and enjoy, what seem like insignificant, tiny moments in life. We understand this blog doesn't always represent reality, just the parts we want to share. One thing we can say is we will continue to enjoy the life we have created, capture and share when we can and only if we want to. Life is to be lived, and we want to make the most of it, so we may disappear from here from time to time because of life. 

Over the last month, we celebrated Mike's birthday with three terrific dinners. The first one—a family dinner at one of our favorite restaurants—was celebrated without a single photograph taken. We found that we wanted to be present and enjoy every one's company that night. We had nice cozy pizza Halloween dinner and a sushi dinner with the most spectacular view. Life remains happy and content as the weather changes daily—maybe, dare we even say—partly because the weather changes daily. We've learned a key to our happiness is being able to appreciate each and every day because tomorrow will be different.
