Early Summer Mornings
My favorite time of year is summer and I most love warm early mornings. I do not like the cold. It is very hard for me to be a morning person in the winter months. But, once spring has become a fleeting memory and summer is in full swing I love to get up early, make a pot of coffee and begin my mornings on the screened in porch. School ended just a week or so ago for Parker and this morning I noticed all the signs of a happy summer well underway: her towel and swim suit hanging to dry on the chair, a stack of magazines (she's 12 but still a big fan of Ranger Rick and National Geographic Kids), soccer balls and softball gloves, lilies blooming in the back yard and early summer morning light. I know, it looks like we have a scrappy back porch (and we do..yes, that's a drywall cart you see in the corner) but it's my favorite place in the world.
