I totally forgot to post on Wednesday like Christina suggested. She was out on a weekend trip so she knew Monday would be a challenge and asked if we could post on Wednesday. Who forgot? Me. I have been having a really fun week after work hours. Monday we drove to Huntington Beach to pick up a clawfoot tub that Aunt Lynn and Uncle Don gave us and I'm so excited about this tub. I have big plans for it. I'll just leave you with bathing under the moon. That's my big hint;) Tuesday Abbie and I took a trip to old Orange and split a sandwich at Watsons Soda Fountain & Cafe. We strolled around for a little bit, popped in and out of the shops. Wednesday Amelie promoted into high school and we celebrated her accomplishments! This brings me to today! TODAY we met the old moon gang for what will be the last meet up for a very long time. Our Moon Mama is moving out of Southern California and we gathered at one of my favorite restaurants in my home town of Fullerton, Good old Rutabagorz it's as old as I AM, established in 1970 and I've been enjoying their food since I was in high school.
Here we are! The moon gang. It was a good day. Even though the library didn't have the BOOK I've been wanting to read. Abbie and I walked through the farmers market before we headed home for the day. The market I've been going to for at least the past 20 plus years. All our babies played in the water fountain there and grew up on the live music. It's family tradition for sure. I thought pictures of the produce would be a nice mindful thing to share. Mindful because it means a whole lot to me and I love buying the fresh produce, although I didn't buy any today. The curly carrot roots are really darling and I'm drawn to a more saturated photo these days, looks more dramatic and detailed. It was sweet because Abbie filmed me taking pictures of the carrots and I hadn't even realized she did that until after the fact when she told me about it. It was interesting to see me doing something I love. I took only a total of 4 pictures walking down the street. I'm trying really hard to take in the moments these days, keep my phone put away more and just take it all in you know? I took a break from Facebook for the summer so I can focus on our summer list, I'm still on Instagram hash tagging our summer. I have not given up on social media entirely, nor capturing moments. I'm just trying not to capture as many moments as I normally do.
Christina shared her thoughts on the longest day of the year TODAY! The first day of summer and shares a beautiful sunset photograph, take a peek 22 LIMES.
