at Belle Epicurean

Burning both ends of the candle this week, and I am just fine with that. I've woken to an alarm, unusual for me, early, and have been surprised to discover that it's light already. I've gone running right after slugging down a glass of water and a mug of coffee. There is a pink cast to the sidewalks, and a different crowd than my usual mid-morning cohort of moms with strollers, friends walking together, and older, hat-tipping gentlemen. Along with the serious-looking runners with earbuds in place, who pass me, there are dog-walkers, and couples out for a walk before work, holding hands.

Now, it's close to my bedtime, and it's light, still. I love this time of year.

It's amazing to have so much light. The other evening I went quite late yet it still wasn't dark. Great that you're taking full advantage and I hope you're enjoying running. I think I'll start again myself soon.

Emily: I hope you do start running! I love it dearly.

Long days are so luxurious. I love that you saw couples out for a walk before work, holding hands. So sweet.

I'm on the fence about whether or not to start running again...and I never have felt comfortable running outside by myself (even though Ive done it lots). We shall see. Your post makes it sound very tempting again.
