What Are You in Love With?

"What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what gets you out bed in the mornings, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." -- Pedro Arrupe

I am in love with food. Reading, learning, doing. Cooking, eating, sharing. Taking photos, writing, blogging. Up early to write, up late to bake. I'm in love with simple summer fruit -- a slice of watermelon or a handful of cherries -- and I'm in love with long afternoons of cooking and recipes that never end.

I am in love with my new espadrilles. It's a hot and heavy love affair.

I am in love with running. Those early morning runs when the grass is still dewy and there's a breeze. Those runs when it's so hot and I'm so thirsty. All runs.

I am in love with the possibility of summer. How everything seems easier, a little more golden. And I'm in love with the prospect of a New England fall.

I am in love with birthdays, holidays, and any reason to celebrate. Any reason to come together.

I am in love with this remix. U2 and Busta? Awesome. Dance party by myself? Absolutely.

I am in love with Boston. And I'm learning to love what isn't perfect about this city. Because it only makes the good parts even better.
