the spring and summer seasons have flown by and i traded my usual loves: the beach, picnics on the river, soft serve, travel, beers, boat rides in NC... with one new obsession. 'twas a different season indeed but every day was so amazing. i learned more, loved more, cried more, laughed more and my heart melted more than all of the days, in all of my life's summers combined.
i've returned to work and as september moves on i find myself eager to introduce sam to his first fall. we'll do all the basic fall things that e and i have made traditions out of over the years, and i'll hope to be instilling a love for autumn into his heart, the same as i have in mine. a look at the previous post is a nice reminder that all things go. so i am remembering to enjoy the ride, no matter how bumpy, in all its beautiful blur.
i never lived til i lived in your light
and my heart never beat like it does at the sight
of you baby blue, god blessed your life.
i do not live 'less i live in your life.
- a father's first spring, the avett brothers
(these words ring true for this mother too...)
a different kind of day at the beach.
those baby blues staring up at me.
sam and sophie getting strong on the mat.
