favorite childhood summer memories.


It was so easy back then, when everything made sense and people didn’t purposely hurt each other.

Before I understood what it meant to be an adult.

+ swimming at Garfield Pool every single day until my hair was greenish.
+ riding bikes until it was pitch black.
+ convincing Dad’s construction crew to build us our own dirt mountain for our bikes.
+ on the boat at Lake Perry.
+ fireworks in the middle of the school playground.
+ chasing lightning bugs at dusk.
+ BLT sandwiches.
+ laying on the floor at night watching Dexter’s Lab.
+ riding around at night with all the windows open.
+ hearing locusts at night.
+ fresh cut grass.
+ popsicles all day long.
+ jumping fences running from dogs.
