Reading Between The Lines: Summer 2013


It is now mid October. It has been at least six weeks since I wore sandals. Today I noticed in the bath that I still have the tan lines on my feet from my sandals.

Odd, I didn’t notice before. Odd, that I felt proud, nostalgic, happy , and melancholy all at the same time just staring at the lines on my feet.

Being on maternity leave and home every day, all the fun I had with the kids, walking the dogs, Timmy runs, shopping with the double stroller, playing at the park, cooling off at the splash pad, BBQs with friends and family, getting engaged and having dinner on a patio… the sights, sounds, smells…the memories of what has surely been one of the best summers of my life, all encapsulated in those simple tan lines.

I will be sorry to see them go, but I know that life stops for no one.

It was the summer of 2013

  1. A lovely post that gave me pause. All the good times go so fast…sometimes I don’t notice them amidst all the diapers and homework and laundry. Thank you. And thanks for following my blog.
