Scenes From The Weekend
Aside from the post-hurricane snaps I posted yesterday, the photographs I took this weekend subconsciously captured things around our house that emit a sense of familiarity and comfort. Not gonna lie, when I first heard that wind howling, I couldn't stop thinking about the windows crashing on my head while I slept. Destruction spared us in so many ways, but our neighbors have a giant tree uprooted in their backyard and flash flooding continues to threaten the houses just around the corner from our own.
Today, I am thankful for the sight of squirrels scampering up the telephone pole outside my window. People in the neighborhood have banded together to help each other out. Whether the storm affected you directly or not, it's nice to think we're all connected through our humanity, and, our vulnerability.
P.S. The weekend wasn't a complete wash (ha, I made a pun). Our wedding rings arrived (yay!), I broke in new heels by dancing in the bedroom, and Emma made banana pancakes for breakfast. Tiho also caulked the entire bathtub just because he does things like that for fun. Me? I can't not giggle when I hear the word caulk. Oh, and we indulged an epic Modern Family viewing marathon. Phil is my secret lover, didn't I tell you?
