It's Summer Around Here.

Hi Bloggy Friends!

I've been on a bit of a Bloggy hiatus lately. I've been thinking of ways I can change things around here. I don't know where I'm going with it, but I'm ready to try something new. We'll see what unfolds.

Things have livened up in our lives since the weather has finally started to get warmer. It seems like we have something fun to do every weekend now. I love it. We're spending more time with friends, enjoying more of the culturally-dense attractions in the city and reveling the sunshine. When I'm not out and about I'm spending time at the apartment with the pets, and taking in some of the reading I've been missing over the last few months. I'm a big fan of taking a break!

I've been meaning to post more of the projects I did over the semester. I'm sure I'll get around to that soon. I did finally get my grades back, and I'm proud to say I finished with 4 A's and 1 B. It was a very trying semester, so I'm extremely pleased with the way things turned out. As I look ahead at my final two semesters, I don't foresee them being quite as hectic as the last. I'm not saying it'll be smooth saying, but just not as loaded down as my past few semesters have been.

I hope you all have a great day. I've posted a few recent pictures of us and the pets below. Doris is really growing up. I can tell a huge change in her demeanor lately. She is no longer the "troubled" puppy I once suspected her to be. She is a little ball of pure puppy energy. We love her so much. I think she is benefiting a great deal from the extra time I am spending at home with her now.

I'll chat with you soon!

Love, Josh

Congratulations, girl, on the excellent grades and nailing another semester! To think... you only have one more year! OMG! I only have one year's worth of classes, but I have to spread them out over the next two due to the sequence of architecture studios. But, anyway.... we're both close!!! I'm proud of you Whit! I'm glad Doris is coming out of her shell too and someone is there to spend more time with her. All 4 babies are adorable!

Fascinating statement. "I've been thinking of ways I can change things around here." Restless creative energy. I can totally relate. I understand, or at least I think I do, exactly how you are feeling. The shift from being so busy with school to having the extra time (or energy) is probably making you see everything differently.

I love the pet photos. In some ways, I'm jealous of you because your animals worked out so much better for you than ours did for Gary and me. But of course I'm glad for you, and I can't wait to meet "Miss D."
