oh what a difference a year makes

Last year at this time- first time on the boat


This year- first time with the new baby on the boat


Next year- who knows…hopefully more babies 😉

It’s funny how one summer can change everything. It must be something
about the heat and the smell of chlorine, fresh cut grass and honeysuckle,
asphalt sizzling after late-day thunderstorms, the steam rising while everything
drips around it. Something about long, lazy days and whirring air conditioners
and bright plastic flip flops from the drugstore thwacking down the street.
Something about fall being so close, another year, another Christmas, another
beginning. So much in one summer, stirring up like the storms that crest at the
end of each day, blowing out all the heat and dirt to leave everything gasping
and cool. Everyone can reach back to one summer and lay a finger to it, finding
that exact point when everything changed –That Summer

Life is good.
