this year you pretty much rocked my socks off. Even if it was the summer that poor Ted had to have brain surgery, and M&S had to reschedule the concert for September.
Four years ago I officially fell in love with you, though I didn’t know it at the time. I was just so relieved to be able to FEEL something. Even if it was the bullets-of-sweat-dripping-off-your-face kind of heat. It was something that finally felt real after Jenna died.
And the next year rolled around and I thought back to that first summer without Jenna. We embraced this new amazing little person in our lives. His newness, the nostalgia and bittersweetness of the summer before… it is was our time.
I knew I loved you then.
And I’ve loved you ever since.
But alas, like every good thing, you’re ending and swimming across the big pond to our Australian friends.
Until next year-
