the waxing continues.
I was inspired to do this after reading this post on one of the many blogs that I LOVE to read. She pretty much told me to do it. And since I all but broke down and wrote a love letter to September and Autumn yesterday, I thought I would show a little love to Summer too. Especially since it's not over yet.
2010 / / it was the summer of...
early mornings at the lake.
feeling sand between our toes.
long naps and car rides home.
the ominous fragrance of thunder and lightning.
every grey shade imaginable in the sky.
swiftly drifting clouds that seemed close enough to grasp.
rainbows. steam on the street.
tall, itchy grass.
freshly mowed lawns and the smell of barbecue in the air.
watching little ones grow.
listening to them sing.
hearing them laugh and play, littering the house with pitter-pattering footsteps.
hot. heat. blazing sun.
popsicles. ice cream. the sweetest sweet tea.
lazy days spent reading books and painting pictures.
one image caught. two. three.
four. five. six.
a lifetime's worth of memories encapsulated in too short a season.
babies no longer babies. first swims. first library cards.
wanting to slow the clock.
long baths. long detanglings of long locks of angelic hair.
gazing into my man's eyes.
conversations in the car.
hope for more date nights.
messy kitchen tables, messed over with love.
reminiscing on times past.
determination to savor every. single. moment.
And you know how I do.
I couldn't resist sharing a few pictures from my blessed summer.
