Front Porch

In the evening, another hot St Louis summer day gone by, we sat on our porch and enjoyed the cool breeze.  The sun was sinking down and the heat had abated a little.  Our little family of three.

The maple trees which grow big and tall in front of our building had dropped a number of seed pods on our porch.  Little helicopters to be discovered by small hands.  Brian would gather a handful of them and throw them in the air.  They would come back down to earth, spinning.  Lorelei was fascinated and delighted by this and even the cats got in on the action:

We are all enjoying the peace and quiet that has come from our move out of the city.  It didn’t happen in the best way, but it has turned out better than we could have hoped for.

  1. Oh my goodness, look at the belly on that kitty! LOL
    Thanks for hanging out with BlogHerathome this weekend!

  2. May it all work out for the best.

  3. I think sometimes when things happen in an unexpected way, the outcome is sometimes “better.” Better is sometimes subjective, so I think you need to find the “better” in each situation, and it sounds like you did.

  4. I definitely understand the feel of hesitation about moving to a new city. But it does look like you’re transitioning smoothly! And you have a beautiful daughter!

  5. I’m 35 and one of my fave things is throwing a bunch of helicopters into the air! The neighbors probably think I’m insane.
