In the Sweet Summertime

Summer arrived.  It took it’s time and those of us who live in the desert southwest were very appreciative of its delay.  The sun is up late which creates an odd feeling when it finally sets and it is quickly time for bed.  Despite the heat of the day, I love the summer!  I have many fond memories as a young girl, learning the ropes of life and navigating through the wonderful days of youth.  Music is always playing in those very vivid summertime memories.  That place between a girl and a woman can be difficult, and oh so very exciting!  Looking back at the first crush, first kiss, first boyfriend, so many firsts in that magical time of life.

Much has gone by since those years.  Many life experiences which have led me to the place I am today, and there will be more to lead me along the way but I believe each beginning of summer will always take me back to those beautiful days of youth.
