This summer has been more like a spring than a full-fledged, scorching heat, dance in the afternoon rays, sip your sweet tea, and hover near fans at all times, normal kind of summer. Don't get me wrong, we did have a couple "hot" (by Washington standards) days, but the heat has been so short lived that you don't need to bother trying to find shade. I start the mornings off with sweaters and end the days without them. Apply sunglasses liberally. :)
My birthday is coming up and I'm hoping the pretty, even tempered, springy dispositioned days stick around so I can thoroughly enjoy my time outside.
I'm really excited for some plans I have with my mom to see The Help. We are both anxious to spend some time together and what better movie for real Mississippi GRITS and her all-things-Southern loving daughter to go see! I can't wait to "boo" at Hilly Hollbrook and hear my mom's stories she will invariably share with me after the movie is over. Stories...are...my...favorite...things. After all.
