Summer postcards

I can barely believe this summer is wrapping up. There are now things hanging up on the walls of our new home and we’ve had some friends over, but it’s still not quite at the housewarming party stage. In the meantime we’ve figured out where to eat breakfast, to get good, cheap dinners, to buy groceries. I have a library card, and am already borrowing too many books. I joined the gym around the corner, but haven’t been once (ugh) and I know the quickest route to get to work when there’s traffic. I’ve been writing at my desk — I now have my own desk rather than just writing at the kitchen table. I’ve been typing a lot these days, old and new stories, but I’ve also been simply enjoying the summer. I will type even more in the fall and because I feel like I haven’t been doing a good job of keeping in touch, I’ll get better at that too. September resolutions > New Year’s resolutions.

I did a better job of documenting summer times on Instagram; here are a few of them for posterity/scrapbook-y purposes.

      (It's a great shirt! And, as a PSA, Samantha has a wide variety of beautiful outfits; I just seem to only take photos of her in that shirt. Actually, Andrew is pretty much wearing the same outfit in every photo too, except that's more in line with reality.)

  1. What a great photo roundup!! I love these pics. Plus:

    - congrats on the new digs!
    - was there a special b&w-striped-themed event? (great idea)
    - i love the maneki neko lamp
    - how is swimming studies? my friend jess loved it, but she lived almost the identical life (competitive swimming-wise) as the author

    • - Thanks!!
      - That *would* be a great event, but it was totally unplanned. My friends like stripes; what can I say?
      - I’m glad you like the lamp. We have a matching pair and Andrew is getting sick of them, but I am resisting.
      - I loved Swimming Studies. My best friend growing up was a competitor swimmer, so I recognized a lot of it, but it’s so much more than just about competitive swimming. It’s a very calming, dreamy book about memories and life…. I highly recommend it!
