Despite all the doom and gloom of the previous paragraph, I am grateful for this summer. I'm grateful for the nights spent watching Netflix, eating Joe's Pizza on the couch while Millie barks her fool head off at anything that moves on the nature trail. I'm grateful for time spent with our neighbors, doing little more than sitting around in our driveways eating ice cream. I'm grateful for the road trips we were able to take, even though we weren't always taking them together. I'm grateful for our family, who supported us through the toughest times and already show so much love for our little sweet potato.
As I look back over the summer, it feels like one of the seasons where time feels suspended. I'm ready for fall, ready for a change, ready for this new adventure that awaits us in February.
