Chilling in the Summer

We’ll blame the lack of posting yesterday on Will’s parents, who are in town for a whirlwind visit on their way to Saint Louis. We tried to show them our house (we hope soon) today but unfortunately, when the owners moved out they locked a lock that the realtor doesn’t have a key to. *sigh* So we walked around the outside and tried to describe what it looks like behind the blue vinyl and mini-blinds.

Life is a bit stressful these days between wedding planning and house buying and the long laundry list of projects I have piled on my plate, not realizing that even tiny commitments add up quickly. I am looking forward to a long holiday weekend and a chance to spend some time relaxing in the out-of-doors. The fireflies are out and the day lilies are in full bloom. I’m ready to lie on my back in a field looking up at the stars. I’m eager to walk in the woods and listen to the summer cicadas. Maybe I’ll make it down to the lake and throw myself in the water. I’m ready to reconnect with nature and with relaxation, in celebration of summer.

Happy Explosion Day.

    congrats on finding a house and hang in there. Wedding and moving is a LOT of change at once.
