Hot summer days.
Watering in the cool of the morning.
Reflections off warm pavement.
I live for days like these. My children by my side and the simple beauty of life overwhelming me. I was at Wal-Mart the other day and the back-to-school aisles truly made my heart sink. I’m not ready for all of that yet. I want to make jam and laze around at the pool. I want to draw with chalk and play hopscotch. I want to sit in lawn chairs and watch the kids run and ride their bikes. I want to memorize their sun speckled faces and the smell of chlorine in their hair. I want to eat juicy strawberries and tons of zucchini. I want to hold Russell’s hand and gaze at the stars late, late at night.
Early morning reflections.
