Summer Heart

Sun is healing. Is it possible I am still thawing from Winter? I think so. Water is calming. Can it really be peaceful at a brand new, teeming City Pool with lazy river, slide and splash park?  I believe so.

Fireflies are magical. How can I still get excited about them in my 30s? (You know you do, too)

Late night fires, s'mores, beers and laughter.......friendships and storytelling and chillin'. Gifts. That have to wait all through Winter and Spring to be opened. And isn't that why they are so sweet? The waiting. The waiting. The waiting.

 

What are you waiting for, that has a very good chance of sweetness on the other side?

And for fun.......Homemade Lemonade (Robby's Summer Bucket List item 1)
