Life got sort of unruly for the past few weeks. I got busy with things that didn't feel too summery, but difficult and sad and rough going. And then at the house of one of my sweetest kindest friends, right by the beach
greeted by a beautiful garden
and the ocean a few yards away
life was suddenly really really good, a world away from the week before, the brooklyn before, of missing Jim, missing my dad on our first father's day without him, of too many things going wrong, moms getting sick (and better) and then an invitation I am so so happy I said yes to...thank you.
