Inhale and hold the evening in your lungs. ~Sebastian Faulks, Engleby

It cooled off a bit around here last night.  Dan is out of town and the kids and I had a nice, easy evening.  I took Millie for a walk and was ever so grateful for our neighborhood.  I am in love with this place on summer nights.

The historic homes pull me into a dreaminess about times gone by.  Who lived here so long ago?

And what is the story with this house?  with the families who were here before?  what were their days and evenings like?

The trees and the plants and flowers and the sprinklers and the sunset were all so peaceful.

I breathed it in deeply.  I am grateful that my family is so tucked in and safe.
