last hurrahs

August 20, 2008

This week, I’ve been squeezing in some last bits of summer. Over the weekend, Rama and I took a morning swim. Yesterday, I indulged in a tangerine (scented and hued) pedi. And tonight, I’ll cut into what may be the last watermelon of the season. I know that the summer temperatures will remain for many more weeks to come, but with Rama back at school and some friends moving out of town, I can’t help but feel like summer is over. So, goodbye, summer. I miss you already.

  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
