We've had terrible Internet access issues all week here at the house in Holden Beach, but hey, at least the weather was mostly good! There was a storm the other night, but we would have already been back up from the beach by then anyway. And what's a beach vacation without at least one torrential rainstorm, anyway? But like I said, the weather really was good most of the time, so we logged plenty of beach time.

On another note...
I want to formally announce the birth of my dear friend Miller's new daughter: Mabry Parker Herring was born on Saturday, July 28. Congatulations to Miller and her husband Nathan. Yay! I can't wait to meet Mabry in person. Miller called on Monday, and she said that she can't stop looking at her. I remember the feeling, the feeling of awe that this little person was just inside you and now he/she's here, looking at you. Miller, if you're out there, it gets even better, too.
