We are visiting my cousins in Ithaca this week, and it feels like a true vacation. Long walks, waterfalls, Thai take-out, breakfast at a diner, playing in a sandbox, lying in the lake, a day stretching before us...I'll check in but it won't be often...fireflies, an evening breeze, so many flowers blooming...summer.
