I forgot to tell you. Friday, before our camping trip (er, "camping" trip), I met my new best friend. Yeah!!! Claire and I have been reading each other's blogs for a little bit now, and when I found out she was coming to Nashville all the way from Australia to visit family, I couldn't resist reaching out to her. And my goodness, we had a morning. I like her. I like her a lot!
We spent a whole, light-filled morning talking photography and trading secrets, then set off for chai and crepes at Marche, where she introduced me to the "baby latte" (above: frothed milk, no coffee, for daughter Eulalie). I couldn't even believe my good fortune. Thank you, sweet Claire, for letting me enjoy all your wonderful Claire-ness :)
Anyway. It's only 5 o'clock pm and...yep! Fully dark. How did that happen so fast this year? And it's COLD! Winterberries and eucalyptus are out. Must turn sofa into a big pile of fluffy blanket clouds. Must fix fireplace. Must finish the Wallingford. Off to get started on those things.
