Wearing L’Oreal Paris lipgloss in Coral Beige!
Note: This dress fits slightly smaller than normal. I popped a few stitches pulling it on, and may have panicked at one point when it was stuck on my head. Also, it has a zipper for those of you who would have figured that out BEFORE getting it stuck;)
These are the days! Daylight that stretches on forever, and breezes that flutter sheer white curtains. Easy days with no to do list, or schedules, or plans. Hours to read in the shade on a back deck, shaded by an old oak tree. Panama hats and bare feet, worn denim shorts and faded tank tops. Undone hair, and flip flops kept close by the back door.
The smell of sun warmed bathing suits, dampened by constantly running sprinklers. A screen door slamming shut. The sound of lawnmowers, cutting grass at twilight. Soft music coming from an open window. Cherry blossom trees lining a busy downtown street. Coppertone sunscreen, smoothed onto little arms and legs. An ice cold beer before dinner, and the scent of burgers cooking on a grill. Corn on the cob, dripping with melted butter and salt. Neighborhood children, running from house to house, shrieking with laughter. Sun dappled grass littered with trucks and towels and toys.
I’ve forgotten how beautiful Spring is after a long, hard Winter, and I am so grateful for the warmer weather and for all the leaves and flowers that seemed to have bloomed overnight. I find myself pausing every couple of hours and just listening to all that is around me and being so happy for two healthy kids that can run through a sprinkler, and a husband that I can call my friend and partner in life.
Life is GOOD.
Tell me, how was your Memorial Day weekend?
