Tippi has been kind of clinging on, half browned and half green. We’ve tried to water her when we can, but she’s suffered a lot these past few months in her little pot. We decided that today would be the day we put her in the ground.

My New Favorite Spot

I’m not a huge outdoors guy. I like my artificial environments, I like my air conditioning. And it’s definitely cooler inside. But for whatever reason, I just find that sitting outside in the evenings really just feels good.
