Short on words, long on memories

I like words.

It’s refreshing for me to put words on paper or screen and know they capture the moments they describe forever.

Okay, maybe not forever. But they will be preserved, waiting for me, unless I decide I don’t want them anymore. {Words on a blog also take up a lot less space than the overflowing boxes stored in my closets and garage. ๐Ÿ™‚ }

During the seemingly endless daylight of summer, it can be hard to make time to finish writing what I start. I really do start. Sometimes it’s a few paragraphs composed internally that never get farther than my brain, but more often, I write words meant for my blog that don’t make it out of the “draft” file.

Not all my posts will be finished – maybe some aren’t even meant to be. But to prevent this one from drying up, I’m going to cut the words short in a minute.

Instead of trying to describe the inquisitive steps of my niece as she saw our cows on Friday, I’ll show you her face.

I’m not going to give you a play by play of the fun and frenzy of the weekend, but I’ll chronicle some of it with photos.

I’m not even going to walk you through the hot and humid 5K we ran on Saturday, but I will say I’m happy I went. I’ll also mention that my sister in purple is amazing for pushing a double stroller 3.1 miles in nearly 80 degrees!
