Brian and Melissa have a bun in the oven. On the day that we hung out, we went on walk around the neighborhood and there were leftover puddles from thunderstorms the night before. There were green leaf canopies over our heads and empty alleyways and fields of tall grass. They got coffee and held hands and rubbed her belly. Soon they will be three, but until that moment of new life, they are still just two. And for now, they are enjoying the thunderstorms and the coffee and the quiet minutes. And they are waiting most patiently to meet the little person they created.
