I ended up taking the summer off from blogging without intending to take the summer off from blogging. Luckily all the reasons for the lack of swan photos have been overwhelmingly good
(family visiting, friends visiting, fulfilling work, a new found interest in running to counterbalance my astronomical cheese consumption, etc.)
All this to say, that I will try and get my act together and get back to posting in a more regular-ish fashion. In the meantime, please accept this photo of a hood ornament as a peace offering.
I hope your summers have kept you all busy and happy as well :)
