the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Saying goodbye to July

I’ve mentioned that July is my favorite month of the year, and I feel a profound sadness that it has so quickly come to an end. Sure, this photo is a metaphor, the sun going down as the month draws to a close. My girls and I have so many wonderful memories of July 2014, and I can’t thank my friends enough for helping us create them. Thank you Chris and Carol. Thank you Stacia, Tanya, and Piper.

You never like to hear your children whine, but when the refrain is, “But I don’t want to leave!” you have to feel gratified that you were able to give them that feeling.
