By the river

B and I were able to take the afternoon on Saturday and relax at the local park. I appreciated this break more than most because it's been a rough few days for both of us. We lost a very dear friend to cancer this weekend and then this morning B's great uncle passed away. In the midst of grief and loss, we had this moment of quiet and it was wonderful. We're currently preparing for a week of services and traveling, family, friends and mourning. I've prepared some posts for the week including an update on this project but if I'm unresponsive to emails or comments, you'll know why. xo

I happily pay exorbitant taxes so someone wonderful makes spaces like this and calls them parks, where we all can go and wear such beautiful summer song shoes...good toe color too, btw. oh my yes.

I'm so sorry to hear about your losses. How nice that you were able to get some park-relaxation time this weekend, though. Which park were you guys at? I live in Athens too and would love to visit it!
