Summer Highlights


My summer has been delightful. In many ways.

First of all, as much as I have enjoyed the years of cooking for the airport crew, this summer was wide open to enjoy the great outdoors, family and friends.

When I rewind the months and play it all over again, I see sunshine, water, golf, babies, weddings, airplane rides, birthday parties, shopping, walks, cabins, decks, mountains, etc.

All of those were wonderful, but I have to say nothing beats:

sweetly dimpled newborn coos and snuggles

a one-year-old smile that goes on forever, framed by the cutest pigtails

fantastic wit and three-year-old wonder

tender ten-year-old conversations, “gramma, does puberty hurt?”

sincere twelve-year-old consideration, “is there anything I can help you with?”

loving fourteen-year-old arms that held me as I visited my father’s grave

Those are my summer highlights.
