I love this season of graduation parties, block parties, pool afternoons, and just sitting around being together.
Today, we were with folks all day long, just sitting around. We swapped long stories of vacations and childhood and gardens and children and pets. In a town like this–during a summer like this–it’s a lot of simple living in community.
We enjoy food and being together with neighbors in a leisurely way. We have time for long stories. In fact, I better get back out there because a neighbor has stoked a huge fire for all the kids on the street to roast s’mores. We’ll tell more long stories well into the night.
This is what I love.
