I'm NOT ready to give up my flip flops. I'm not ready to trade them in for socks, Tims, scarves, or fleece ;(
I think that the realization that another summer has slipped by is going to make me shed a tear.
I'm not whining for once. I haven't done much at home this summer, but I've still been lucky. I've been able to travel, and see summer in other places:I've been able to jump giddily in the ocean, and bask in the midday sun. I've been able to sit in an open air stadium, and watch friends play some kick a$$ soccer. I've eaten sticky sweet cotton candy and slurped on yummy frozen lemonade. I had DRINKS around the pool with my some of my OSC chicas ;) Went bike riding in the mountains with a dear friend. So yep, I've been VERY lucky- I've visited old friends, and made new ones. Why am I still so sad to see it go?
I'm not ready for it to get dark early; to need a jacket... or even a COAT. I'm not ready for sweaters, or for de-icer. I'm not ready to hear what the wind chill will be, or how much snow we may get tonight. Yikes.
I'm not ready to face autumn. I don't want to see the pretty leaves of fall, because I know that means winter is on its way. Changes are coming. Life may not be the same next summer. I'm not sure if I'm ready for what may be waiting...
Tank tops, swimsuits please stay. PUHLEASE?
(Yeah, I know that mother nature doesn't take personal requests... but I figured it was worth a try-- LOL)
This is a summer that had made me laugh AND certainly cry--- but as I sit and think, I realize that it was full of friends and memories, and I'm STILL not ready for it to end.
To those that were there, thank you for keeping me company.
Sunshine and Smiles to keep you warm during the 'Winter'...
PS, the pic is from a trip last weekend. Cubandiva<>
and I tore up Miami ;)
Okay, not really.. but it sounded like the cool thing to say, LMAO.
Relaxing in front of the water allowed us both to briefly escape. So now, back in reality, I stare at this picture on my desktop and smile. The sea talked to me that day when I cried my salty tears. Somehow, someday. I have to have faith that all be ok. Abrazos, mi amiga. Keep yo' head up! ;)
