We love you.
Like, for real, love you.
Because to us, you represent:
the smell of sunscreen on sleepy little girls
the emergence of freckles on 4 year old skin
petunias and impations
bathing suits and towels drying in the backyard
exploring different playgrounds
playing outside until 9:45pm
ice cream with friends
beers on the front steps after Ellie is in bed
the realization that I can still hit the golf ball a long way, but that my short game needs a little (ok, A LOT) of work
fairs and fireworks
hanging out a little longer on the deck
open windows with fluttery curtains
leisurly breakfasts with just one more cup of coffee
flip flop tan lines
talking with neighbors over back fences
container gardens with fresh tomatoes and squash
cheap fruit (hello $1 blueberries!)
So You Think You Can Dance
and swimming all day at a newly discovered swimmin' hole.
Please hang around awhile. You can never wear out your welcome.
