It's hard to even remember what sunshine and warm water feels like when it looks like this outside your window:
But the other day, I received a package that brought summer to me.
My grandpa made me a lobster house birdhouse complete with buoys and lobster pots. It has become my reminder that, in theory, summer will return, and I will be able to gorge myself on lobster rolls, my new favorite meal since moving to the East Coast.
So even though I can't get outside right now (the patio door is frozen shut and blocked by snow), I have a small piece of summer in my apartment to remind me that this winter HAS to end ... doesn't it?
