Dear America: happy (belated) birthday! love, me.
It seems that the month of rain (aka June 2009) has passed and summer is finally here! And just in time for the 4th, one of my favorite holidays, full of summertime goodness and delicious food. We had a pretty spectacularly picturesque BBQ to celebrate the 4th of July yesterday. Complete with burgers and hotdogs, potato salad and baked beans, beer and spiked lemonade, and an outrageous spread of desserts. The weather in NY was just perfect, and Morningside Park was really cute [minus when some guys set off these fireworks that were incredibly loud and lasted 10 minutes...and Alex tried to ask them if they could be stopped, and got threatened to get punched in the face]. The shot above is what we saw from the roof of Luiz's building - it was pretty great. We could see all 5 launching points for the fireworks over the Hudson.
Dear Summer: I hope you keep being as lovely as this nice, sunny weekend! love, me.
