We ran outside in the sun until it rained and wore our red heart-shaped sunglasses with pride. We sat at a picnic table and painted, wrote, read and did our nails with sparkly polish. We watched movies and laughed until we fell asleep. We went grocery shopping for buttery popcorn, milkduds, cookies and summery beer. We supported local restaurants and enjoyed delicious dinners, wine and better conversations recounting family memories.
I always have such a great time with Kate and Will.. I'm so glad they were able to spend some time with me this weekend. They live only a short distance away in Brooklyn, but sometimes when life gets in the way, those 15 miles seem like thousands.
Now it's time to get back into swing of things.. but since Marissa is here enjoying her summer vacation and my California trip is coming up in 5 days- that miiight be easier said than done...
