Still here! Sort of!

It’s been a long time since we’ve posted, but for good reasons. Er, stressful reasons, but still good. More detail to follow in a password-protected post. Since everyone’s moved to Feedly or something else, let us know if you need us to send you the password.

In the mean time, here’s a shot of our cool dude Curly at the beach, where we recently vacationed.


And also, the wonderful Love Invents Us nominated us for a blog award (thanks!) and asked a bunch of accompanying questions we’re supposed to answer, so here goes…
