this weekend we ate on our little bbq three times:
1) apples and sausage and avocado grilled in buns with best friends by the river
2) pizza with eggplant and caramelized onions and blue cheese in the park across the bridge
3) fried figs and eggs and toast on the beach before the world woke

eating breakfast cooked by my favourite person, flavoured with charcoal, before slipping between the waves, the beach to ourselves, filled me with a brand new joy.

tomorrow we fly to toronto,
for a mini holiday, and to share a meal with these inspiring folks.

happy middle july.
