Yep, September is here and it is a ‘yay’ and ‘oh no’ for me. Always. September can be such a lovely month. Not too hot, not too cold, lovely evenings and cooler nights and on top of it, it is the month David and I got married. But it also means the end of summer is close. Too close for my taste. I love summer and want it to stay. One of these days I will have to move south (again) to get away from winters and, even worse, those wet and yukky months of dark, cold and wet weather of not being fall, nor being winter. Hate it. I guess it is all part of the circle of life.
September 1st also means that it has already been almost two months that two very good friends from Germany visited us. Well, they were actually on a business trip working for the same company as David. But that, of course, meant that the four of us at least went out to dinner one night. And Marco even stayed with us, so we had a little more time. It was only a brief visit, but it was very good to catch up after, oh my, more than two years. Time does fly when you’re getting old(er).
Last time Petra visited she had to go to New York City, because she hadn’t been in… I don’t know, 10 years? No problem, so we did that last time. This time we had dinner a little closer. Emphasis being on ‘little’, because we went to Hoboken, just across the Hudson from the City. It had been a warm day and Marco had spent the afternoon walking around his old neighborhoods in New York, while the rest of us worked in the office. We met at the restaurant, Zylo’s, which is directly on the waterfront. Big plus, especially for us Europeans, it offers outside dining, including a fantastic view of the New York skyline. And the food and drinks? Pretty darn good!
Naturally I had my camera with me and snapped a few skyline photos and portraits of Petra and David. Marco was too shy – well, o.k. he is not really shy, but, quite understandably, walking the City in humidity and heat had left their marks 😉 So, I will leave you with these photos and one question, I am curious after all: What does September mean to you?
