Night of a Thousand Stars

Life does not get much better than camping out under the stars with your closest friends and family, although my back can attest to the need of an air mattress.

My single favorite moment this weekend came with the sheer, silent appreciation of a starry wide open sky in front of a camp fire.

Even the rain yesterday didn't dampen my glee. Took the kids through a wet trek in the woods where we saw green frogs, many different kinds of birds and small mammals, got messy, and had a blast.

The best part? Yesterday was the eight-year anniversary of Nic's dx, and I had completely forgotten all about it until just now.

Wow. I am finally taking back August.
