i’ve been meaning to post a few pictures from our visit to ithaca, the second stop on july’s upstate ny visit, and our former hometown. we attended a wedding that was held at the ithaca farmers market, one of our favorite stomping grounds. it was refreshing to once again be amongst tall trees and cool water.
elsewhere in town i enjoyed soaking up the sites with good friends and neighbors. there was an art installation on the commons that caught my eye. this installation by jeremy holmes is entitled drawing in the trees.
i was able to check up on the yard that in five years we slowly turned into a garden… but was slightly overwhelmed at the sight of it, so didn’t bother looking too closely… for it’s no longer ours to tend.
instead, i enjoyed the garden of a dear friend. she’s not afraid of color. or of slowly ripping out every blade of grass from her lawn… i love that about her.
it was a wonderful visit. unfortunately, time ran out before we could see everyone we were hoping to see, and do everything we thought we’d have time to do… besides, a girl’s stomach can only handle so much caffeine. but how beautiful and refreshing it all was… xox to you all!
