a temporary farewell

Summer is all but over.

Yesterday was the first day of school.

The days take on a new rhythm. 

Suddenly the dirty cabinets and the dusty fans make themselves known and it isn't as easy to ignore all the things that should be done for an adventure or an afternoon swim.

I ate my first apple yesterday and bought two butternut squash. I like what the next season brings.

But still, my happiest place is swimming in the ocean with my children. Salt and sun and sand.
