Last night's hang here was great with the Super Team and other friends. There was a cupcake cake with candles courtesy of Simone, and we all sang happy birthday to Colin. Then Alison and Simone smashed cupcakes on his face. It was hilarious. A dance party ensued, and I was thoroughly impressed by Alison's dancing/domestic skills. As Jeannette's camera has become the go-to recorder of events, I'm going to have to get ahold of it to post photos soon.
This week has felt a lot like the anticipation leading up to something great. Fall is officially here, and it seems like it has been a long time coming. I love the crisp in the air, the sound of the leaves on the ground, and the constant breeze washing through everything.
I woke up this morning to the sound of the trees swaying in the wind mixed with the quiet roar of the el going by in the background. Somewhere in there, I felt like I was waking up on the beach with the ocean in the background steadily crumbling on the shore. It's a good thing to wake up to. Much better than the freakin dog next door.
Another thing about fall is that it's just perfect for impromptu walks.
