Petaluma Was Divine

Schmilly and I did the following:

Napped beneath long red curtains
.
ate incredible whole foods, farm fresh
.
strolled the Boulevard
.
antiqued (oh wait oh wait till I show you what I found! A COUP!!!!)
.
Gazed lovingly into the eyes of the other across tables
.
discovered that polenta can heal the world
.
drank dark chocolate mochas
.
slept in
.
took nary a photo to document these lovely things
.
because
.
we were too immersed in the living of them to step away
.
for even one second
.
so
.
imagine:
.
blue skies
golden hills
fog blanketing the evening and burning off at mid-morning
brick buildings
ephemera
Petaluma Pete
poached eggs with orange yolks over wood-fired toast
claw-footed tubs in maroon with the words "Le Bain" written in chalk
shuttered windows
local butter
slanting sun
bare shoulders
and
.
.
.
love.

Allison
