all in the details
i stumbled upon this song that was just released today and it got me thinking that a) it’s definitely going to be my summer JAM, and b) i’m completely head over heels with the little details of my life.
summer is such a sweet time. the days are long, the breeze is warm, the bees are buzzing, the trees are rustling, the animals are always outside, the river is swimmable — sometimes it feels surreal. this window of warmth we get here in Montana is so fleeting. two and half months can really fly by when you’re spending all your time under the sun. and yet i think i do a pretty good job of not dwelling on that fact. it seems to be the one season where i’m able to remain fully present. sometimes it’s hard not to — after all, life can seem so perfect when your baby always smells like sunscreen & sugar. hair soaking wet, skin slightly pink, he’s the most perfect tortilla wrapped up in a beach towel napping on my chest.
oh how i love this season.
sometimes i miss the ocean. i think there’s a part of me that always will. the salt, the sand, the never ending sea. there’s just nothing like it. i’ll always have California in my blood. but i’m happy to report that i’ve come a long way since my beached whale days. turns out, there’s a lot more to do by the water than just laying around getting your tan on. these lakes and rivers have completely stolen my heart. fresh water has its own beauty to see; its own treasures to discover. fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding. check, check, and check. sign me up for it all. just give me a big straw hat, my trusty water shoes, a Camelback, and i’m set.
summer, you are full of adventure, and we are here for it.
oh and thanks for all the unforgettable little details…
