these two chicks are my cousins. they are eight and eleven and way cooler than i ever was at their age, or maybe even now. i have spent countless days in the car, at the pool, on a golf cart, and looking simply ridiculous with these two blessings over the past few summers. in a simple phrase, they have given me endless days of color.
bright, bright color.
we have had lemonade stands, made one direction music videos, had countless picnics and photo shoots. we have celebrated every holiday in one day, made a carnival in the basement, and i have chased too many eight year old friends up the stairs as the “bad guy”. we have had paint wars and cooking shows and roller bladed in 80’s attire.
we have had fun and we have lived.
these two are a constant reminder to me to make everyday something to remember. they are a reminder to be silly. and mainly they remind me over and over again not to be boring and not to grow up.
as they start school this year, i hope they know how special and beautiful they each are and how much they light up my life.
so here is to days of color.
