movin’ on

June 26, 2006

I realized this morning that I’ve gotta move on. I’d been wanting to write all about the wedding — I still might — before going on the honeymoon. But we’ve left and honeymooned our hearts out and come home and now it’s summer and I miss just talking about the little things.

Like the juicy and fragrant summer berries that I love to stir into my yogurt every morning. And the funny tan line I have from wearing my flip-flops all day long. I love reading trashy books and watching blockbuster films during the summer. I love seeing children with two scoops at the ice cream shops. I love the way summer makes you feel young and hopeful and free, even if you’re 30 with bills to pay and a business to run.

I have some grand plans this summer, but for now I just want to celebrate everything between the plans we make.

    Summer always makes me feel like I’ve been re-born. I don’t know if it’s the sunny days or walking barefoot in green grass, but there’s something magical about this time of year. And yes, I agree, it does make one feel young and hopeful–no matter what her age!

    Hey! Welcome back. I think you should move on over to the phone and call me when things have settled down and you’ve caught up with life. M and I would love to see you guys soon.

    reading your thoughts about the little things is always a breath of fresh air. just what i need to remind me of what is important. :)

    congrats on the start of your new life!
