Our first picture together--looking at the scrapbook
The morning prior to our meeting was uneventful, except for trouble finding the florist. We pulled up in front of L's house after having spotted it first on our advance trip around the block. She lives on a street that felt remarkably familiar for the types of houses, well-manicured esplanade, and positioning in a neighborhood that saw it's zenith in the 1950s. Her house itself feels like the houses that I grew up visiting my relatives and friends in: two story with a front storm porch and a garage around the back accessed by an alley.
