donuts and dinners...

do you ever fly home from a holiday dead sure of only three things?

one could be that you require a beach house or, at the very least, the daily possibility of sand in your britches. sandy possibilities make my heart race. you, too?




the second might have something to do with you or, say, uncle sugar {do you have one of those? you should really get yourself one of those.} chucking it all and beginning an adventure where you feed yourself and lots of others. even if the sustenance is made entirely of water ice.

and the third would definitely involve outdoor showers. but not creepy peepy-tom neighbors.




i am missing you all like mad. but, i'll be honest, i'm smack in the middle of a love affair with chlorine, a never-ending quest for yahtzee!, frog and firefly hunts, and the girlies three. not necessarily in that order.

a kiss or two to you. plus some pretty amazing people who sort of did follow through with the second thing up there: dai due, carpe donut, and supper underground. all hella cool, yes? and i'll bet their killer ideas were hatched after particularly lovely holidays. plus maybe a few inspired nudie sprints from the outdoor showers to the house. what? you never know! xoxo.

Hi Karey, so lovely to get your post card from your summer. It sounds like you're having the perfect break. I'm looking forward to reading more. It's not the same without you here. B

i've missed your words and thoughts so, but i'm so happy you're indulging in non-internet things. keep loving what you do -- knowing things like that warm my heart a bit.

Oh, I've been absent, too. Summer gets a little crazy for everyone - the comings and goings and visits and little ones... It sounds like yours has been a fabulous one so far, dear. And it makes me glad.

xoox,
