evening

I took this picture earlier this evening as I walked from where I parked my car to a restaurant to meet a friend. The neighborhoods in this city are all so distinctive; I love every opportunity to spend time in another. I had dinner with a friend from high school. It was so good to be at a table with her; what we talked about was irrelevant.

On the drive home, I noticed blossoms strewn all over the place. The wind was constant and soft.

Back at home, I walked through my quiet house and felt a little sad. I kissed everyone -- already asleep -- goodnight. It's good to get out, and it's good to come home.

"It's good to get out and it's good to get home." Words to live by, I'd say. Great post.

The range from bright light to dark shadow in this picture kept me coming back to it again and again. A very fun photo to look at! :) Margaret

What a gorgeous photo for this post, a little introspective and pensive, and a little easygoing.

Mommies need time away to make that time at home more precious.
