this week, i’m squeezing everything into my civic (included but not limited to: pasta maker, huge wooden chest, cat) and driving back east for good. i’ll get to see my family in atlanta (much needed, so excited) and show b around athens, where i went to college.
…and then i’m spending the rest of the summer in maine. in an rv. next to a river. where lobstermen catch lobsters and bullfrogs croak all night.
i’m so excited for the sweet summer maine air, and campfires and sweatshirts at night, and swimming in the freezing ocean at popham. oh, and being in a town pop. 30 (give or take, do we count deer?) and no internet.
and then in the fall, on to boston, where someone got himself into law school and someone else (ahem) got her dream job teaching american history at a charter school.
mani katz‘s photos of the blue lagoon in iceland are mesmerizing.
today is b’s birthday (he is exactly 3 weeks younger than me). we’re celebrating by going to arcade fire tonight.
this is nothing special, just a few random moments from the last few weeks and pictures from the year. it’s the everyday, but that’s what i enjoy the most about sharing things with b. happy twenty fourth year!
what do you think about using pictures as placemats?
this print is available in my shop.
