:: in the land of zoe

a dear friend from work was traveling out of town this weekend.
while she was away-- i had the privilege of staying at her house.
a magical place tucked away at the center of a web of dirt roads & tree tunnels.
a place where big red barns stand proud. and horses graze. and white chairs sit in front lawns.
where stands sell fresh asparagus on the corner. and neighbors say hello.

i went shopping & exploring with her daughter. probably the most hipster teen on the planet.
we stocked up our summer wardrobes at target.
indulged in chinese take-out.
and sipped starbucks frapps. more than once.

as i was traveling down the path home--- i couldn't help but wish i was staying in the idyllic place just a little longer.
