After some hairy moments, when I wondered if I would ever be able to bring the site back up, we’re now here at for good! I’ll try to spend some time soon sorting out the archiving menus so it’ll be easier to view past entries.

We’ve moved the site because we may sell the domain along with David’s business, and I wanted to keep the blog going wherever we are in the world. I have a thing about “sparkling adventures” — it makes me think of the Famous Five, Secret Seven or old Nancy Drew mysteries. Maybe one day we, too, will find a secret passage that leads from a cave on the beach to an old house used as a hideout by smugglers.

In the meantime, I’ll continue to blog the mundane so we can look back and remember the different stages of our children’s lives. If you read my musings, please leave a comment so I know who you are.
