hump day nuggets: little bits of the season in photos and words about the last week
Right now I am sipping vinho verde. The back door is open, and I hear a lawn mower, bad country music and a storm rolling in. I am wearing the same skirt I have been wearing for three days, a wet bathing suit top and sand on my shoulders. My desk is dusty and piled with things I’ll get to later. Out the window I see a tree heavy with apples, sun-bleached adirondack chairs, crisp sheets on the clothesline, sunflowers and cosmos. Margot and Ruby are napping. Their sunscreeny bodies relaxed into naps before I could say sweet dreams.
We may not have tomatoes but it’s still summer.
:: This summer my youngest felt cool mountain water on her toes.
:: This summer Margot got so brave. She became a kid.
:: This summer we were still amazed that a little love turns into dinner.
:: This summer Margot played hard.
:: This summer it felt like Ruby would never get those top teeth. Thankfully we had quick and abundant access to her favorite teething toy.
:: This summer we went to the fair.
:: This summer we fêted 10 toddlers’ birthdays.
:: This summer I loved watching Margot love the river.
:: This summer we saw a llama with the sweetest underbite. Do you remember this song
? (my favorite as a kid!)
:: This summer my sweet potato stayed close to my heart.
:: This summer we loved summer.
:: This summer we cruised around town on bikes.
:: This summer Ruby crawled.
:: This summer papa got a new toy and he has been exhausting himself getting to know it.
:: This summer we ate melon by the river with a hippie transient tribe playing music and doing free spirited moon dances with their dreadlocked dogs.
