I was looking through a box of old pictures yesterday and came across one, taken in the fall, of the small grove of birch trees that grew in front of my childhood home. I really love birch trees, particularly in autumn. I wish my current home had a little or a big grove of them. Anyway, autumn, it's officially here folks. The fall equinox, according to wikipedia, is the moment in time when the sun can be observed to be vertically overhead. In 2010, this moment occurred at 03:09 on September 23 (UTC), and at 8:09pm September 22 where I live (PST).
Alexi had the day off yesterday after six straight days of work, so it was really great to have a chance to reconnect while the kids were at school. We had the best lunch out in recent memory, at Nettletown.
Did you happen to hear this story on NPR about the importance of touch?
Really love this photo (via Nikole).
I made plum crumble the other night, and am sure I'll make it again and again.
Happy Thursday to you! xo
