Hello friends, welcome to a post that feels weird to write, and hopefully, not too weird to read.
The photo below is me. Friday morning at 7:10am. voting early in our June 9 primary. at our local library. whoa.Memorial Day Weekend is typically a family gathering time for us. seriously, years. and for a host of reasons I knew this year would be different and hard, but y’all. My Instagram feed has thrown up posts from past years, which mostly made me sad, and geez. Katie kindly shared the playlist she compiled for our time together last year and I’ve been listening to it this week. Not gonna say it’s been all happy, but the memories are good. And right now, having good memories is a good thing (I am so grateful to my family that I have treasure trove of these to rely on!). So this post is going to be compilation of the good things, paying it forward, if you will.
OK, these first two images aren’t current, but they are favorites from the last couple of years. (thank you blog and Instagram).
New readers, that’s Charlie! He still has eyelashes to die for, but no longer wears quite so many stripes 😉 (neither do I, although I do still have both those dresses, if not the dyed hair!)
So… staying home this weekend has meant porch time (alone!),
more time with the two beings I actually live with (ahem, Marc and Holly),
and a first porch meet-up with my sister. Taking a photo of her (far away) seemed weird, so here’s her new (to me) porch sign. ♥These seem like great “rules” for the summer. (for life, honestly)
I’m still getting my head around what I want for Summer 2020. The bucket list of years past seems … hard. We’ll see.
In the meantime, I hope you’ve found something to remember and/or celebrate this weekend, and I’d love for you to share.
