I enjoyed my Memorial Day off (the cafe is closed for renovations today) by biking over to a park and meeting up with my friends Andrea and Jason. We spent a while basking in the warmth of the sun and then retreated to their apartment for a delicious homemade Italian meal of pesto pasta, bruschetta and a plate of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. So satisfying and summery. I'll be posting a few different photos from the day, but this first one is just my newly made pair of moccasins in the green grass. I usually don't think too much of simple shots like this, but I loved the business of the green grass for some reason.
I took this from the front porch of Ashley and Joel's old house on Friday night. It was a gorgeous warm night, and as the sun set and the chirping of the crickets began, I couldn't help but feel nostalgic about the times we'd spent on that porch and in the yard having cookouts and enjoying eachother's company when I lived there. I hope we can be near each other soon to start enjoying a new front porch together.
I had edited this photo a few days ago and was waiting to post it, so now seems as good a time as ever since my card seemed to choose to corrupt on me tonight when trying to load my photos (keep your fingers crossed that I can retrieve all of them!). I took this while Joel, Ashley and I were doing our ten million loads of laundry the first day I got to Shepherdstown. I hadn't done mine since before Valentine's Day (I know, I'm a disgusting human being) and they had only been doing what they needed, so had a lot of blankets/sheets/towels laying in waiting to be washed, so we just went for it all, taking up most of the washers in the place at one point.
