No more long distance phone calls for us.
I just spent the day with two of my favorite people in the whole world. The best part is that I can do it all over again next week!
Katy and her mom have been providing us with easy entertainment and farmer's market produce this week. They love a good treasure hunt and have taught Sebastian how to sign for 'train'.
Elsie knows the best sushi restaurants in town and also indulges me in visits to local flea markets and coffee shops.
I was pinching myself this afternoon after a full day with these two incredible friends to make sure all this goodness was real. I haven't been so excited about living somewhere in a long time. I love it here. I love being so close to people who have known me for as long as it matters. Close to the art and culture of an exciting downtown atmosphere. Close to easy, Midwestern people and the comfort of balmy evenings full of lightning bugs and the sound of pick-up trucks. We belong here.
Sebastian and I have discovered a park only two blocks from our doorstep. Ironically, Elsie and I did an art camp there for the neighborhood children about four summers ago. Happy memories met us on the swings.
We found a couch today. We sold our table. We're still gathering and sending out and making it just right. Soon we'll have something pretty to show you.
Off to Arkansas to see Brett's grandparents and peruse the local flea markets.
Have a lovely Sunday.
