Three mornings ago, I was woken up at 6am by a phone call from Kev who had showed up to the airport, only to find that his flight wasn't until the next day. Oops. So he came a day later, and even though it was just twenty four hours, it was excruciating.
But he's here now! And it was love at first sight between him and Corn. After we ate salmon brought fresh from Alaska by my parents and amazing homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream made by my Mother (with tons of mint she grew!), we went for a mountain walk behind the house. Just as we got to the top, a sliver of the moon revealed itself from behind the Sapphire Mountains, and we enjoyed our own personal moonrise kingdom. It was magic.
As much as we just wanted to stay home, relax for a change, and get to know Cornelia better, we hit the road this morning. We're driving to Minnesota for a wedding. We've dubbed this trip, "The Last Hurdle," because it is; it's the last hurdle before we can settle down for a while. It might be a few days before I can post again. I hope your August days are filled with magic.
