quiet mornings

It has been a busy week. And not quite half over! With the weather cooling off a bit, the gentleman and I have started taking early morning walks. The streets are still quiet and the light is beautiful. We don't talk much, both still wiping sleep from our eyes and dreaming of caffeine. But, he'll hold my hand, and we'll stop occasionally to silently admire a building or peek through a garden gate. Sometimes the best part of being with someone is not having to say anything at all.

Some things:

* 5 Beekman Street (thanks Anne!)
* bread from Gran's Kitchen
* and Always With Butter

Sounds like an idyllic way to start the day.

Yes, one of my happiest memories is from when I was in HS visiting my grandparents. My grandma and I were sitting in her little sitting room, each one of us reading our books. After a few hours she turned to me and said "Do you know what I like best about you, we can both sit here together and not have to talk to one another". Thats why she's my favorite person to this day!
