What June has brought...

Summer flowers in the house. (The big, blueberry-looking things are poppies.)



News of a new job (!) at an early-literacy non-profit that is nestled onto the 9th floor of the middle building in this picture. Tomorrow is my first day.



Baskets of strawberries that we picked by ourselves and then brought home and doused in chocolate.

those funny balls are poppies? my mouth watered just reading about chocolate on strawberries...i am so glad your summer is off to a beautiful start.

Amanda--they are poppies, and when the bouquet was tired and I was taking the old flowers out, I looked around and little black poppy seeds had fallen all over the coffee table. I almost scooped them up so that I could make lemon poppyseed muffins or everything bagels or something, but alas, I just swept them into the trash...
