summer

Image
it was a too darn hot morning when i dragged doug running. right now, i've fixed myself a platter of dutch cheese, one ripe tomato and two slices of Paul bread and i'm sitting at the desk by the window. it is drizzling rain outside with a nice hushed sound; there is a cool mist now, and hyrangeas in front of my window. there, the smell of the rain comes too and the sun pops up again. it's an undecided, lazy morning/noon/day for all of us. it is good to be back at home although i may not feel it when i'm working all day, and it has been good to go out and explore new things as well as catch up with old things. hydrangeas might just be the best thing about summer, while tomatoes, about life. my life, at least.

Cusack & Moore

my favorite actor is John Cusack and favorite actress, Julianne Moore. There is something so sincere and endearing about both of them. I wish they had a movie together.

saturday

We had a fine Saturday picking out pashminas, bargaining for corals and walking around the Grand Bazaar. That's where we met my aunt, which was a smart idea because you get to know people so much better when you share an experience. In this case I was glad my aunt got to know my husband a little better, since he's so sweet and fun to hang out with. Doug and I then had a little dinner at Hamdi. I was curious about the place for a long time. No more. I didn't like anything except the soup, and I couldn't be sure what was so special about the place. It's overrated.
Now I'm tired and just sitting here uploading photos and listening to Lady Day.

anniversary

happy one month wedding anniversary to us. here's a cliche: feels like it's been so much longer! but it really does.
the wedding day came and went by in a whizz. it was truly a blessing to have everyone we had there, and to have so much support from our friends and family. i can't yet describe how i felt that day and how i feel today, and i'm not sure if i ever will be, because i'm not sure if there is any significant feeling to describe, other than knowing that you're getting dressed, and putting make up on, and getting your hair done because so many people will be looking at you while you get married to the man you love; and the rest is photo shoots, kissing the bride and dancing with friends.
dancing with friends, that makes such a good memory.
