When you stop being a rotten teenager you find that your parents are actually some of the best people there are -- at least that's what I've found. It may seem like my parents pay me to write good things about them (I mean come on, Mom got a whole post over here!)... but in actuality, I do it because I love them.
Another thing you find when you're no longer a rotten teenager and have been in college for a few years is your high school friends don't tend to be 'home' much anymore. When you are, they aren't. When they are, you aren't. It's a constant game of tag. But the friends that are always there with arms wide open are your parents, well, my parents at least.
So, now that school is over (correction, one more blasted day.) I had a few days at home... with my parents... and Baxter. I'm soaking up all this family time because in just about one week I'm headed to Philly for the summer. Words cannot express how EXCITED I am!
But today -- let's talk about today. Not next week, not 'during the summer', let's talk today. Today was good. Brunch. Momma time. New nail polish. And flowers. Lots and lots of flowers. Mom and I visited our favorite nursery in the area and loaded up our cart with lots of snazzy new plants to dress up the garden with. That Momma of mine has got a green thumb and I love when she includes me in on what to grow next!
I snapped while she collected the pretty flowers... and of course I got my feet in there for a few. ;) Hope you had a bright, sunny, flower-filled Sunday too!
