Oh, I'll tell you that I
I love you by and by
I don't know if I'd survive
Without a friend like you in my life

Brett Dennen, By & By

I'm so unabashed about my love for love, family and friends lately.
And did I mention that I'm happy?

Sunny Sunday

My new favorite treat is sipping a pint of porter
on a sunny Sunday afternoon on the porch of a pub
on South Street with Scott. And alliteration.

Bangin': Continued

Think I'm going to like them!

Sorry for the poor picture quality.
Took it on the computer in fluorescent light.

I simply cannot get enough of this song. I love everything about it.
It's called Home, by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.

Thanks for introducing it to me, Haley.

Ginkgo Leaves

The ginkgo became my favorite leaf when I did my 7th grade science project on leaf identification. Their veins are unlike those of any other deciduous tree's leaves (which are either palm-veined or parallel-veined). I thought that was pretty cool.

More Neato Facts about Ginkgo Trees:

• they're often planted in cities because they thrive in polluted air
• they are considered living fossils

Sassafras leaves are a close second. Followed by yellow poplar.
If you're really lucky, I'll explain why in a later post.

Had a great weekend.
