we had brunch on sunday with my wonderful friend of many years, emily, and her family.
including ginger, seen below as a cat:
and here as more of a live fur stole:
she will only ride around on emily's shoulders. behind emily is ella, who is amazingly grown up and lovely since the last time we saw her (so long ago that i'm deeply ashamed and vow once again to never let so much time pass between visits with true friends).
i'm so jealous -- emily and matt bought this cute little aristocrat camper. it's nearly perfect, only in need of paint, cushions, curtains, and then they can 1. camp with it, 2. use it for a summertime guest residence, and 3. just hang out in it. they also plan to build a small patio in front of it.
did i mention that emily is my own personal martha stewart? i can't even begin to describe how pretty and delicious her brunch was. and i'm not just saying that because she reads this blog! which reminds me, emily, i want your spinach pie recipe!
