Tonight at about 5:30 PM, I emerged from a kitchen stupor and stepped outside into the most beautiful early evening ever. The light was just so; everything was bathed in a warm glow and a sense of ease. Chris and our friend Matty were picking apples while Theo sat in her ‘magic chair,’ snacking and watching the girls ride horses next door. I brought out beers for the guys and then climbed the huge ladder; I got right up in a tree, looked down from above, and sighed. I just felt like sharing some of the pictures we took, which already feel sun-drenched and hazy and too perfect to believe.
