Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day, everyone!

We're grilling up some our kitchen. However, no less delicious! This urban living is so different, even a year and a half later. I still miss the chorus of hundreds of branches creaking outside a window late at night, accompanied by a stringed quartet of cricket legs. I look forward to a day when we can have a little backyard. Nothing fancy, just enough space to lay out on the grass and gaze at the stars. And perhaps a late summer/early autumn camp out. It would be great to have a place to roast marshmallows again!

Until then burgers fresh from the kitchen and the cherry tree outside our living room window are a happy alternative. Last night Ryan and I watched the sunset over the sound with our friend Stephen and a round of ice creams. Nature is always there, sometimes it's just waiting at the edge of the city limits. If we do ever return to the country, I will probably miss the store fronts, the coffees around every corner, and the mating call of a suped up Ford growling up the street.

Burgers are done! I hope everyone is having a marvelous, relaxing labor day!
