other than the obvious:
"family! friends! puppies!"
| | fresh journals | |
crisp, white pages.
lined or unlined with the promise
of secrets and adventure.
| | thick knit scarves | |
because they are my favorite sign of fall.
especially when combined with apple cinnamon tea,
crunchy leaves, and the longing for a new semester.
| | falling asleep in the sun | |
baking and letting the sunshine soak
every negative thought and ache.
waking up crisp and golden and healed.
| | beating all my athletic competitors at 'just dance.' | |
because i don't have to be a runner in order to
shake what my mama gave me
and shake it real good.
| | fabric softener | |
on clean sheets and giant sweaters.
fabric softener reminds me of college
and my mom insisting she do my laundry whenever i visit.
fabric softener was always her gift to me.
| | a real good ugly cry | |
the kind that rips your soul right before
the seams burst.
the kind that, when finished,
brings the sunshine back.
| | my wedding day bouquet | |
i will never in my life be more in love
with a floral arrangement ever again.
those flowers. that day.
nothing in my life has ever been more perfect.
| | cruising down to the lake| |
that summer when lillie became one of my best friends.
we rode and vented and laughed
all the way down the trail.
she just gets me.
| | having a complete connection when writing | |
a stream from mind to pen with absolutely no filter.
no thought of what is happening.
just letting it be.
| | cory | |
like i need to explain this one.
