Wrapping it up.
It’s the end of Summer. The summer with Powell, paddle boarding and slick rock slip-n-slides. The finale of How I Met Your Mother and Jess and Nick finally figuring it out in season two. The summer of the late winter with Angels Landing and crepes so good we had to figure out how to make them at home. And of the spring when I ran away with Lauren and we hit all the Rosses. Where we ate THE Steak and the cheap marinara, and I drank my first cappuccino, which was more dessert than coffee and therefore perfect. The summer of the spring where I could have sauna-ed my life away with cedar and eucalyptus. The spring of Laguna Beach and all the fabric shops with Martha, (and Jane and Carol, and Musa). And of the new job and figuring it out (still figuring it all out). The summer of the real Spring where Megan and Tim tied the knot on that drizzly day in Charleston where the clouds dissipated just.in.time. The spring of wedding and winning mix tapes. The summer of the return trip to Vegas with the umami burger we walked the long way to get and the selfie with my love in front of the fountains. The summer of strengthening friendships and figuring out ways to figure the new things out. The summer we finally kissed the last of the pink goodbye, and maybe I am a bit sorry to see it go, but maybe it just wasn’t the right shade. THE SUMMER OF RUNNING and heat and getting up early to beat it. The summer of discipline. The summer I learned to drink all the water. The unfortunate passing out and in the end, running my own race and winning the medal. All totally worth it.
It was the summer of Making.
